Immortalize Your Favorite Friend

I absolutely love making portraits of people’s beloved teddy bears and other toys! Getting to know them, hearing their story, posing them, and lighting them to accentuate their best features…

Go up to the attic or under your bed or in the back of your closet and find your favorite childhood toy again. Give him a hug and then commission me to paint a portrait for you!

Recreate a Vintage Photo

Faded and soft, like a memory…

Commission a portrait from a faded black and white snapshot of your loved one – like a smiling face from sunny day at the beach sometime in the early 1950’s.

I translate a black and white photo into a color portrait in oil paints – bringing the soft colors of the time, like a bathing suit and towel, back to life and adding the blush to her skin, flushed from the warmth of the summer sun

Or any item, beloved pet, or house you want!

Tremont – While making this painting I used photo references and watched and re-watched a video of the house several times. As I painted, I felt like I was in their yard for weeks – in the warmth of the sun and the sunny yellow house, among the lovingly placed and planted sculptures, stones, shrubs, flowers, from years of making this house a home.
