I’d love to work with you. For a portrait, send me a high-quality photo you love of your beloved person or animal, and we’ll go from there – we’ll talk medium (colored pencil, paint, etc.), size and price. I’m flexible about size – I’ve painted pieces way taller than me. And I’m flexible about mediums – I love to experiment and broaden my horizons if you’re adventurous. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

Pamela sent me this photo of her parents on a cruise in the 1970s. I drew this portrait of them in 2013 for their 50th anniversary.

Jenny sent me this photo of her beloved husband in his favorite car. I came up with a somewhat whimsical approach. It’s outside her workspace, where she sees him every day.

Nancy is a bona fide cat lady. She wanted a BIG, colorful painting of cats. That’s all the direction she gave me. Here’s what she got – it’s 5 feet x 7 feet.
