company Profile

[Image] Artist Mary McGuire

Mary McGuire has always been an inveterate doodler; during lessons at school, lectures at university and later, at work, meetings.

From an early age, she also drew pictures as presents for friends and relatives, usually when she was at a loss as to what else to give them or too skint to be able to buy them a proper gift.

Gradually, they started commissioning her hand drawn artwork to give to their friends and before she knew it Drawnbyhand had appeared.

This went on quietly, behind the scenes, for some time until the friends grew up, as people do, had children and started commissioning their offspring's names in artwork. Before she knew it, a niche market appeared and Mary now earns her living drawing name art.

As well as here, online, she exhibits in a gallery in her home town.

“It's fab! Even better, all the other mothers who have seen it are green with envy!” - Leigh, first time mum.

“You know how to draw things that appeal to children which is a rare enough gift on its own. But your art appeals to grown ups, too. That's why I think it's special.” - Elaine.

“Wow! Look George! You've got an heirloom!” - Chad, 3, first time older brother.
