Working with Shira
"Working with Shira was an incredible experience. She took time not only to find the right image as inspiration, but also to learn about my dad and what his interests and values are. From this, she created an amazingly beautiful piece for my dad's 70th birthday. She sent me a few photos along the way so that we could make sure we were on the same page, and was completely responsive to feedback from me. When the painting arrived, I was floored. I was moved to tears by how beautiful it was, and how much she captured the essence of my dad and his relationship with my daughter. I loved working with Shira so much that now I am asking her to do another piece for me."'

"I had a terrific experience working with Shira. Through the whole process, Shira outlined all details for me and kept me updated on the progress at each step. The piece she created for me was absolutely gorgeous. She was able to illustrate a very personal moment in my life without ever having met me. I look forward to commissioning another piece from her."

"I asked Shira to paint a picture of my homebirth; I knew she was talented but wow, did her work amaze me. She captured everything. It was like she was there at the birth. I am so grateful that I have this gorgeous painting of my homebirth that captures the proudest moment of my life. Moreover, Shira was very professional to work with and timely. She was clear about her goals and the timing of getting the work done. I am looking forward to my next piece with Shira!"
