1. Pick reference painting(s) for inspiration

The reference gives me an idea of the period/outfit you want and can be completely changed to fit your desires.

2. Send clear, sharp photos of the person to be painted

Tip: pick photos where the subject isn’t smiling for a more authentic portrait look!

3. Painting process

This original artwork from your photo is a combination of digital and traditional hand-painting. Each brush stroke is painted by hand using digital pen and tablet. No collaging, copy/pasting, or bad photoshop here: as a digital artist, I pride myself on painting from scratch, brushstroke by brushstroke.

4. Digital version approval

You’ll receive a digital copy of the portrait for your approval: this is your chance to suggest any changes you want to make before printing and finishing touches.

5. Framing (optional)

Beautiful high quality wooden frames available in walnut or golden wood.

  • Digital Copy

     Digital copy - a .JPG file will be emailed in a digital form. It will be a High Resolution JPG file in 16"x20" size unless requested otherwise. You can have it printed anywhere, in any size, as long as it's for personal use. There's no physical product shipped with that option.

  • Rolled Canvas

    Rolled Canvas is offered in standard frame sizes and ships rolled in a mailing tube. It's ready for framing or stretching (the canvas will have at least 1" white border around the image to allow for stretching if needed)

  • Framed Painting
