Preserve YOUR special memento with a painting
Have you ever caught yourself looking at the same object over and over again and your inner voice tells you that you should make a painting out of it?
That little voice inside is right. Just like artists are driven to paint what they love, you want to listen to that voice that tells you which subject you should make a painting of.
With a painting, you can tell a story that is unique to you. Imagine being able to relay the story of an object dear to you, to your child, grandchild or even a group of close friends, why the painting is so special to you.
I’ll help you go through the process with ease and headache free. Because I have over a decade of experience as a portrait artist, I understand how important custom works are to my clients.
I’d love to help you create your dream painting.
