A custom Alexandra Nea illustration is available to be created upon commission. As you will see when flicking through my site, my style of illustration falls across a number of different categories. Without pigeonholing myself too much (!) the favourites as loved by you, my readers, are the foodie, the bridal and the enfant styles. I also do a lot of work in the commercial fashion industry which you will see reflected throughout my portfolio selections.
Like something that you see and want an original for your very own self?! Well, it’s simple. Just drop me an email with some details about your initial thoughts on what you would like to create and we take it from there. I will work closely with you to create the perfect piece. Below are listed some ideas and a little more information on my different styles.
Fashion Bridal Portrait Illustrations
Capturing your wedding day in my signature whimsical fashion illustration style. My most popular pieces are the Bride and Groom and the Bride and her Maids. Recently, capturing the gorgeous little flower girls has become a big hit. These illustrations make the perfect gift from the couple who has everything to the groom for his wife on their one year wedding anniversary, (being the traditional gift of paper). Or perhaps a special way to treat yourself after the last of the cake crumbs has been polished off, to hang along side your favourite photos. Other popular uses are to be turned into thank you cards and also, with a little imagination on my part, to be created before the wedding has taken place and displayed at your reception for all your guests to sign around the edges, then framed and hung for a lasting momento of all the love that surrounded you on your special day. Please contact me for more information and prices.
Enfant Portrait Illustrations
The perfect gift to celebrate the impending arrival of a newbie or for your special little person’s christening or just a great excuse for some fab nursery art, my Enfant style of illustration is all about capturing the magic of childhood. I recently created a piece for a dear friend for her baby shower as a surprise, all her guests wrote messages to her bub-to-be on the board surrounding the illustration, we framed it and now she has it displayed in her beautiful little baby girl’s bedroom. Please contact me for more information and prices.
Afternoon Tea Illustrations
My original styling and my personal favourite to draw, though oh-so time consuming! Does your Mum have a favourite teapot or teacup? An heirloom tablecloth from a great grandparent? Perhaps she makes a delicious tea cake or slice that is her signature dish. I would imagine she would be pretty chuffed to receive an artwork with all of these elements captured together in still life. The perfect gift for the collector and a great piece to hang in the heart of the home, the kitchen. Please contact me for more information and prices.
My background as a Fashion Designer has seen me create thousands of designs and sketches for a number of different fashion houses over the years. From a delightful time spent at college undertaking many hours of painstaking work capturing a piece of french lace in illustrated pencil, (for no other reason than to create a beautiful work of art), to many years spent churning out hundreds of quick sketches and production drawings by hand, (I am allergic to any form of computer aided design program). Detailed, rendered fashion close-ups, runway sketches and tech packs, whether for private or commercial use, please contact me for more information and prices.
