Krislyn wanted a piece to gift to one of her best friends who was opening her own private practice. She described her so lovingly to me. “Riding her bike in the park, watching summer concerts at the botanical gardens, doing yoga on her fire escape. She’s driven, creative, kind, and the friend who connects people."

Alex wanted a portrait with her sister for graduation so they could both take their prints off to college with them. "We are extremely close, and I want the art piece to symbolize us being together no matter where we are in the world." I drew them, hand in hand, the background a collage of the Rocky Mountains and the Arizona desert, to symbolize where they each would be spending the next chapter of their lives. Apart, but together in spirit.

Katie and her brothers all chipped in to purchase a custom portrait for their sister's wedding. We found a photo of where her sister and sister-in-law-to-be would be getting hitched and used it to make the portrait even more meaningful.

Portrait subjects are typically drawn holding hands, arms around each other's shoulders or backs, or both simply looking off into the distance side by side. Portraits can be drawn shoulder-up (with more detail in the hair) or full-length (gives you the option to customize style, clothing, and body positioning). These are the most common portrait styles, but the options are endless!

This fee includes custom art, a photograph background, and one 8x10" print.

Timeline start-to-finish for a custom portrait is 4-6 weeks.

The Process:

  • Once your order has been placed I will be in touch within one business week to begin the portrait process.
  • We will start with a short questionnaire about whoever will be in the portrait. I will ask you about clothing, body positioning, hair, etc. for the subjects in the portrait.
  • I will also ask you about your preference for the background environment (forest, mountains, ocean, city, etc.) and will find a handful of options from my personal photograph library as well as from stock photography sites.
  • I will show you one concept/rough sketch before creating the first official draft. You will have the option to change clothing, body positioning, etc.
  • From there, I will create the final portrait and you will have the availability to make two rounds of small edits.
