Wouldn't it be amazing to have a meaningful painting
that celebrates someone special?

 

Let's explore the possibilities!

 

What is a painted portrait?


Painted portrait commissions combine traditional photographic portraiture with hand-applied painting artistry. Using a mixed media approach, I blend a variety of mediums and tools, from a camera to a tablet to more traditional artist mediums and oils on canvas.

 

Each portrait commission begins with a reference image and is transformed into a work of art, initially with hand-rendered modern brushwork, and later the painting is transferred to canvas and enhanced with texture, glazes and oil paints. In the end you'll have a painting that you'll love!


Your photograph. Transformed.

Your work of art can be transformed into a painting from most any camera photo or image regardless of the background. In addition, you may also be able to use a digital file you had someone else photograph as long as we have permission. Send us a photo, or we can schedule a sitting.


What story would you like to tell?

We accept 5 commissions a month.

Will yours be one of them?
