Why not just snap a photo?

A photo is fleeting.

The portrait an artist creates is intimate.

Every feature and nuance is accounted for: freckles, scars, wrinkles, color variation is studied and drawn. There is movement and grace that can be seen with each stroke. A relationship is happening between the subject, the artist and her tools.

A photograph captures light; a portrait captures the soul.

Thank you for your interest in a portrait. You are purchasing a one-of-a-kind work of art. I will create a beautiful portrait that you will love and treasure.

Portrait pricing depends on size. Every portrait is unique and requires time to get the details and personality perfect (55+ hours).

100% Guaranteed Satisfaction!

*pricing starts at $800 for a 11″x14" portrait size 

A NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of $150 is required to begin your project, with the balance due upon completion. You are welcome to work out payment arrangements with me.

Calendar spots are reserved on a first come, first serve basis. By placing a deposit, you are reserving your spot on my 2021 commission calendar. I'm currently booking for June/July commisions.


POLICY: If you are not able to send me pictures by or within a few days of your begin date I will need to reschedule your portrait for another date. My calendar books approximately 6-12 months in advance so that might mean having a new begin date at a much later time in the year. Thank you for understanding!
