About Coralie

Coralie Martlew Art is the home of Coralie’s artwork which specialises in graphite pencil and mixed media portraiture. Coralie’s aim is to capture a realistic likeness of her subject with a skilled, sympathetic hand that harnesses over three decades of patient drawing practice. 

Her pencil work focuses on fine details crafted with the soft, monochrome nature of graphite. Meanwhile, her work with mixed media uses a more relaxed, playful style that adds a subtle wash of colour using soluble graphite, charcoal and ink-type mediums. The finishing touches are then made with graphite pencil, coloured pencil and fine-liner pen.

Which style is for you?

Pencil Portraits

If you’re looking for that extra special memento to mark an important occasion or record a precious memory of a person or animal in your life, a detailed pencil portrait is right for you.  Click the info card to find out more.

Coralie uses high quality graphite pencils in a range of gradients to build a highly-detailed pencil drawing over many hours. As a lot more time, experience and energy is put into this style of portrait, this is reflected in the higher price tag and longer timeframe for completion.

Mixed Media Portraits

A mixed media portrait is ideal for capturing a fun moment or special someone in a more relaxed, fluid style. It is quicker to create and more budget-friendly. Click the info card to find out more.

Mixed media portraits are created using wet and dry versions of graphite and charcoal, as well as ink-type mediums. They are less detailed (but no less beautiful!) than their pencil counterparts and so are more suited to a quicker timeframe and/or lower budget.
