Whimsical is how I describe my work. I live for the details and how the characters interact with each other and their environment.

Portraits, whether of pets, people or a favorite item has been rewarding for over 19 years. Feel free to ask me about a custom portrait for you!



Hi! I'm Becky Gehrisch. I am an portrait artist, illustrator and author. I enjoy working with colored pencils, acrylic paints and chalk pastels. Making art is particularly rewarding when I see a client’s (or child's) reaction to my work.  My illustrations are influenced by my childhood and the countryside where I live.


I’m active in the local children’s book community! I have served as the Illustrator Coordinator for the Central and Southern Ohio SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators). I also teach art classes at my local libraries and writing classes at the Thurber House in Columbus, Ohio.


Thank you for taking a moment to explore my art.
