A portrait is the most unique and intimate gift a person can give. Whether its a wedding portrait, a family portrait, or as a memorial. More and more I am realizing just how sacred these paintings can become in a family, they are an instant heirloom. Because of this, I use only the highest quality materials. For acrylic painting I use golden acrylics, which are incredibly lightfast, meaning they don’t fade over time. I triple coat with a U.V. protectant clear coat, and the paintings are created on high quality canvas. It is my intention that these works of art capture the spirit of your loved ones and remain vibrant for generations to come.
I work with the families involved, by forwarding progress photos to make sure the likeness of your beloved family members are captured perfectly. I make as many alterations necessary to make sure that the painting is not only satisfactory, but breathtaking.
Presenting these paintings as gifts is usually a very emotional experience, and I want that experience to be as beautiful as it possibly can be.
My paintings are created with love and intention, and never rushed. I ask a minimum of 10 weeks to work on each piece. If you need a painting faster than that, I do charge an expedition fee of $150-$500 depending on the size and number of faces, as I will have to set aside many things in order to give your painting the time it deserves. Even with expedition, I am not willing to cut corners on these portraits, as meaningful as they are to you, they are my legacy.
A non refundable 50% deposit is required at the time of commission. However, if you are less than ecstatic with the final product, you are under no obligation to buy it.
I look forward to transforming the image of your loved ones into a work of art.
