Spirit portraits


How wonderful to get a communication from a loved one in spirit? What a marvellous confirmation if you are sent an image of that person, sent from them with a message!

I do not work clairvoyantly so do not 'see' anything, but I allow spirit to work through me and use my hand to draw themselves on the paper, the drawing equivalent of automatic writing.

Spirit guide

We all have guides who help us on our spiritual journey. Some are with us most of the time and others pop in when we need their particular expertise. A portrait can help to bond and communicate with your guide. This is a unique channeled drawing of one of your team and its very fabric absorbs the guides energy which you in turn will be able to connect with. This is a particularly useful tool for those who find it difficult to tune in as it acts like "speed dial" to help you connect. For those who've been having conversations with guides for a long time it is a visual affirmation of your bond.

Past life

Knowing about our past lives very often helps some of the jigsaw pieces in our current lives to fit and the bigger picture to make sense. How we behave, the sort of relationships we get into, good or bad, our likes and dislikes. Having just one revealed to you can bring amazing insights and can be the beginning of unraveling many issues that you have not been able to fathom.

I create this drawing by linking with the past life energy within your aura. I do not see your past lives, the drawing automatically.

Power animal

Power animals have a very similar purpose in our lives as Spirit Guides but in a much more fundamental way as it is the very essence of the animal that teaches and guides us or comes in from time to time with a message to help us on our journey. You may have sensed an affinity with a certain creature and then dreamt of another. I will draw whichever one is most dominant at the time of the reading.

How do I order a portrait?

Make your selection on the shop page and once I've received your order, details and payment I will start your drawing. Communication with you is all I need to make a connection for you in spirit.

I will sense or be given information as I draw, which forms the basis of a reading. I leave this as an option as some may already have this knowledge or be able to access it yourself and only want the drawing, so you can choose if you wish to have the reading or not. It will be approximately 2 pages long. I will email my work as soon as it is done so you don't have to wait until the original arrives through your letterbox a day or so later.

"Had a spiritual drawing of my guide, very impressed with the results. My main guide was how I imagined and now to have it drawn and confirmed to me was fantastic. A very uplifting experience. Well recommended. Thank you." Ken

"The picture was wonderful and Barbara gave me some wonderful information and advice. Thank you." Deb

"Barbara is amazing. My father said I should have been a Nun and nobody knew. Barbara drew a nun, also I see a steward in meditation and blow me Barbara drew one for my daughter. She is amazing. Thank you." S. Woods

"What a wonderful insight into the philosophical aspect of my work I will succeed. I will conquer. Thank you." Pauline

Portrait commissions


The ultimate portrait! One which portrays you outside and in. I need a clear photograph of the person to be drawn and I paint this portrait first, then I link into the aura and wait for images, symbols, colours to appear. When the artwork is complete I then 'read' what has appeared and produce a reading to go with the portrait. The work is in watercolour and is presented in a mount ready to frame.

In Memoria

Sometimes a photograph is not enough… Or maybe your favourite photo of your loved one is a bit 'dog eared' and you want something a bit special to remember them. A photograph is all I need to create a memorable watercolour portrait, presented in a mount ready to frame. If there are memories you wish to be incorporated in the portrait which were important in that person's life, fishing, football, gardening, dancing etc. I will be happy to discuss what you would like. Contact me via the website or call me on 07714123513.


Do you have an 'alter ego'? Do you see yourself from a different time? As a different being? Fairy? Elf? Witch? Wizard? Let me have a clear photograph of you and some idea of how you would like to be portrayed. Finished watercolour portrait is presented in a mount ready to frame.

How do I commission a portrait?

You will need to send a clear photograph of the person to be painted with any instructions, preferably by email but by post if this is not possible.

"Brilliant, thank you. Amazingly accurate — a true gift for spirit. Hopefully I will see you again." Julie

"Brilliant, had a drawing of my Nan and left it on the breakfast bar at home. My Mum's partner came to visit and asked when my Nan had had that picture done! He did not know I had been to see Barbara and he had never met my Nan who had died several years earlier, but seen photos of her at my Mum's. He was very impressed by the likeness. Thank you." Alison

"Fabulous Spirit Guide pastel portrait with insightful and informative reading. Thank you Barbara." Wendy

"I was drawn to Barbara to find out my Spirit Guide As I'm into Native Americans way of life. My Mum drew a picture of my guide some time ago. The drawing Barbara did was of my Spirit Guide. It's the same picture of the drawing my Mum did, I asked after was there a name to go with my guide. She replied 'Running Water' to my amazement I burst into tears, this was the name my Mum gave me when she drew the picture. Thank you so much. You are totally amazing. Love and blessings." Sue
