Have you wanted a custom painting of a beloved pet, favorite vacation spot or a portrait of someone special in your life? A painting can invoke deep emotions by bringing back memories of times and places that you cherished. A commissioned painting is a unique form of art that is done with care and attention that has a timeless quality.
Working from photos supplied by you or that I take with my professional camera equipment, I work with you to select a choice set of images which will form the basis for the composition of your painting. My style is photorealism and composition is very important and I will bring my many years of experience to help you achieve the best composition.
I work mainly in watercolor, pastel pencils and graphite. See my sample paintings shown below for examples of my work in these mediums. I also can create paintings in oils, acrylics or even crayons if you so choose!
Depending on the size and composition, plan on a month or more for the painting to be completed. A written contract will be created and a downpayment will be required and then the painting begins! The first step to begin this journey is to email me and we can then begin exploring what you want and price ranges. You can email me at "firstname.lastname@example.org" or use the email form at the end of this page. I can't wait to hear from you!
