Commissioning a Portrait

In today's fast-paced world where images come and go, a custom designed portrait has a long lasting life you will be proud of, honoring your personality, history, heritage and interests. Unlike most expensive entertainment items, a fine art portrait will outlast most things - it is an affordable investment that will become a heirloom treasure.

Commissioning a portrait is easy to initiate, the results you will appreciate. You can transform a favorite photo into a work of art, or create a new image by posing for the artiste.

To mark a special occasion or milestone, such as a birthday, anniversary, graduation, retirement, achievement etc.-- a gift of a portrait painting is a special and unique idea! When time is limited, a gift certificate can be given on the occasion to be redeemed soon after it meets approval with the plans to proceed with the artwork.
