About Fine Lines

Ben Appleton created Fine Lines in 2020 when he decided to turn his passion and hobby into a business. Having practiced as a landscape architect for almost 20 years, drawing was most definitely part of the day job. But for fun, and for friend's birthdays and celebrations, he would draw houses as gifts. Urged by his friends to make more of his talent, Fine Lines was born.



Ordering your bespoke illustration couldn't be easier. Follow the 3 simple steps below.

1 Place your order

2 The drawing part

3 Framing & finishing


After you've placed your order, send us a high res image of your chosen building and select the size of your illustration.

We'll check whether you prefer black and white, or with colour and we will then begin drawing your illustration. 
When this is done, we will send you a digital scan for approval.

We send them mounted in a white bevel cut mount, or if you choose, can frame them in a choice of white, black or oak frames. I hand-write the wording of your choice under the image or pick a type face is you prefer.
