I am Jess, an illustrator making a home in Cape Town. I live for special moments and art.
My business is the product of both passions and there are fewer joys greater than waking up each day to do things l love.
Watercolour Heart takes your special photographs and turns them into unique, custom portrait illustrations.
My products make beautiful gifts, wedding stationery, cards and home decor items. My drawing style stems from a commitment to make everyday a celebration of life and creativity – and l hope that you will join me in this quest.
If you love art and creativity, but don’t have the time or inclination to make a Pin-worthy masterpiece, let me take the ideas from your mind to the page, and package them beautifully for your loved one, colleague or neighbour.
My illustrations are hand drawn and painted, after which they’re scanned into a computer for touch ups. This ensures the finest quality for your one of a kind print.
Watercolour Heart is inspired by family and it gives me butterflies to be Mamahood Approved in South Africa.
Where it began
At a young six years old, my grandmother placed a brush in my hand. Our relationship was beautiful and it is after her passing and the gift of a box of watercolour paints, that Watercolour Heart took shape.
I believe that personalized gifts crystallize unforgettable moments, giving us the opportunity to enjoy them just a little bit longer.
It is my hope that Watercolour Heart will make art and creativity contagious and spread rapidly into the hearts and homes of families worldwide.
