Custom Home & Building Portraits by Cape Horn Illustration





Inspired by our love of architecture and history, I create illustrations of homes and buildings. My work is pen and ink on heavyweight drawing paper, all done by hand. I aim for a classic, "etched" look because it exposes the labor of the work, each line and hatch-mark, behind a given portrait. This method also gets me close to the details of the built environment; each brick, stone and ornament deserves attention.

Every home has a personality. I strive to capture it in my work. I can include the personal touches that make your home yours: the tree, the curtain, the family pet. 

I'm five star rated on Houzz, where you can read my reviews. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

I work primarily in pen & ink. I like the classic look of it. I can provide color, on request, with digital watercolor, for an additional fee of $150. If you'd like that just let me know.

I am also happy to give framing recommendations.
