Ordering Custom Portraits:

Portraits really are the perfect gift or keepsake! It captures a special person, pet, or moment in time forever. I have a painterly style, my portraits will never look like photos, but then that is what photos are for!! My favorite medium is watercolor, for its luminosity and expressionism. Watercolor is known as a difficult medium, as one must learn to let the paint do what it wants to some extent, but I love the exciting things that can happen almost outside of your control! I enjoy trying to capture the subjects personality, and focus a lot on the eyes, which I feel is the key to a portrait.

The process:

  1. First, contact me to discuss your desired size and subject matter.

  2. Then, email me photo(s) to work from, as clear and expressive as possible.

  3. Once the portrait is complete I will send a photo for you to approve.

  4. Upon approval, you pay the portrait price and shipping.

  5. Once payment is received, I ship your new work of art!

  6. Please allow 3-5 weeks for completion.
