Gilly Beech International Portrait Artist       Life in colour

About my work:

There is nothing in our lives more important than those we love and the life we have been given on this incredible planet.

In a fast paced era full of technology and the pressure to conform we need to take some time away from our phones and computers to talk, laugh, reminisce, travel, be active, be creative, look, listen and be kind to others less fortunate. The things that truly fill our souls. Occasionally these reminders come to us in an enlightening or nostalgic moment. In memories! It can be triggered by the sounds and smells in the countryside,  the formation of clouds, the silence of snow fall, the sound of the sea lapping against pebbles, texture of grass under our feet, a child's laughter, being creative, watching people have fun, and so many other important things that remind us what matters.

I create art that connects with these values expressing love and memories through colour.

I work closely with clients at home and abroad producing commissions that capture that moment worth holding on to:

  • Baby and toddler portraits showing their innocent, curious minds.
  • A portrait children together before they move on to explore life individually.
  • An heirloom
  • A bespoke sensory connection painting for a someone unable to express their emotions easily


I create commissions  that connect with emotion and encourages us all to appreciate the value of life and importance of love and compassion. I am asked to create a variety of commissions and rarely turn down the chance to create something new.

I would love to help you and your family connect through my painting
