It’s time to get all those photos off your phone and onto a canvas.  Commissioning a family portrait is a great way to capture special people and special memories.  Favorite family photos, beach trips, snow skiing, fly fishing, family reunions, 4th of July celebrations, brothers, sisters, grandchildren all make great paintings.  

Please note: Commissions for Christmas 2018 are FULLY booked. Commissions are now being accepted for January 2019


  • Commissions are currently being accepted.

  • The approximate turn around time for a completed piece is 8 to 12 weeks.

  • All work is completed with acrylic paint on gallery wrapped canvas.

  • The first step is to make a deposit for your commissioned piece.

  • Next, you will be contacted by email to determine the specifics of your painting.

  • Deposits are $200. Deposits can be made in the SHOP.

  • Deposits are also non-refundable. If you have questions before making a deposit, please get in touch. I am happy to discuss concerns or answer questions prior to placing a deposit.

  • Proof images of your painting will be sent via email before completion. If needed, two adjustments will be free of charge. Additional adjustments will be invoiced at $75 per change.

  • Once the final piece is approved, your painting will be varnished and wired for hanging. The sides of your canvas will be painted, so framing is not necessary.

  • The final invoice will be sent/paid prior to pick-up/shipping. Client will be invoiced for shipping.

The process of meeting a new client, learning about their family, determining the specifics of the painting, and completing a work  of art just for them is very  rewarding.  I look forward to creating a family portrait just for you.
