Portraits are a lasting tribute to someone you love. An heirloom for generations to come. I believe that a portrait must also be a beautiful painting, not just a likeness.
The painting will astound you with the realism of character. I believe the very soul is mirrored in the face and eyes, and even in the set of the shoulders. My goal is to capture the subject exactly, as well as to incorporate the lifestyle and image of the times with background and color. The painting should be worthy of museum quality and an asset to home or office.
Although I prefer to meet with and photograph the subject myself, this is not always possible. There are many times when the portraits must be done from existing photographs for various reasons.
Beautiful portraits in various styles and sizes are offered. Pricing is very individual, depending on subject matter, available photographs and content.
Please contact me for more information, and visit my gallery for examples of my commissioned portraits.
