Celebrate your home
Custom house portrait! – How house proud are you?
Embroidered house portrait
A Custom made embroidered house portrait of your home is a really unique way to celebrate the time and love you’ve put into making your house a home.
Thousands of stitches build up an illustration of your family home and all the memories that come with it. A thoughtful gift for yourself to treasure forever.
Embroidered art reflects well in the light and is very tactile. Quirky and perfect for the vintage lover with a character home renovated to perfection.

I can only accept a number of commissions at a time. Please enquire about your commission to see if I have space for your special project.
Your piece will be mounted onto a board of your chosen size allowing you to choose the perfect frame for the perfect wall in your perfect house (professional framing is recommended). If no size is selected A4 will be assumed. You can also let me know your preferred orientation and house location on the piece.
I also stretch my work on timber stretchers or using an embroidery hoop as required.
The embroidered image will be of the exterior of the house (I work from photos you have supplied). No large items except for some trees and bushes will be embroidered (e.g. cars, boats, Unicorns). Unless these are important, then please let me know. I prefer to work a front-on view of your home but I will take direction.
I normally paint a splash of the perfect sky behind your home so you can live in the best day of your life every day. Painted in a watercolour style. This is optional.
We will start with a conversation and when details are agreed I will send you an invoice for a non-refundable deposit of $100, which will be required before any designing takes place. Please contact me with the details of your commission. Before the piece is sent to you I will invoice you for the final amount.
Commissions start at $400.00 and I’m currently running an introductory offer of $250 for the first few pieces.
In your confirmation email, I will ask for a photo/s of your home to start the design process. You can supply a number of these to communicate the feel of your home and accurately show me the colours used.
Your house is made to order. Each home takes approximately 4 – 8 weeks to embroider. Shipping is $20 within NZ $30 the rest of the world. Free shipping within Hawkes Bay.
