A hand-painted portrait is a great way to capture the essence of a cherished photo in a brand new way! Unlike some companies that use a machine to print a digital image onto a canvas, I hand paint each portrait to create a unique work of art.
Photos of weddings, family members and pets are just some of the subjects that lend themselves to Photo Portraits.
Custom house portraits are also becoming increasingly popular.
In recent years, I've learned the art of fluid/pour painting, and I think this technique can make a great background for some portraits (see example on this page). More examples of Photo Portraits and pour paintings are in the Gallery.
If a Live Wedding Painting won't work at your event, or if your ceremony has already occurred, a painting from a photo is the next best thing!
A photo of the couple exchanging vows, the first dance, first kiss, cake cutting, the bridal bouquet or any other favorite moment can be turned into a Wedding Portrait.
My love of animals led me to start painting Pet Portraits for friends & family.
There's no question that our pets are important members of the family, and a hand-painted Pet Portrait of a beloved animal is something you will cherish.
Is there some aspect of your original photo that's not ideal? Don't worry! One benefit of commissioning a Photo Portrait is that I can modify the painting to reflect desired changes from the original photo.
Photo Portraits make great gifts for many occasions, including:
Like all commissions, there is a certain lead time involved. So, if you'd like a Photo Portrait finished by a particular date, please let me know as early as possible.
Pricing for Photo Painting usually ranges from $100 to $600, but is dependent on variables including the size and type of canvas or board desired, the subject matter, and how quickly the commission must be finished.
I can give you a better price estimate if you contact me with a photo of the subject, a desired size of canvas or board, and a date you would like the project completed.
