Art Made Especially For You.

Custom artwork is one of the most lasting and personal gifts you can offer yourself or your loved one.  You are investing in a family heirloom: something that will be in your or your loved one's lives, forever.  Your children, even your great grandchildren will have the chance to look at it someday and connect with a special part of who you are.  And the best part is, there is no limit:  Repeat customers have enjoyed multiple portraits of their nearest and dearest.

How It Works:

I work with you one on one to discuss what type of piece you would like me to create for you.  This can range from a small, simple sketch to a large scale oil painting or mixed media project.  For custom pieces, I generally work from photographs.  You send me three to five photographs you can imagine turning into artwork, and then I choose which photograph I think would translate best into a finished piece.  After we discuss the scale and intended medium, I will provide you with a quote.  Then we draw up a contract, a down payment is placed, and then the work begins!  I am happy to accommodate special requests and welcome your creative vision, but I work equally well with free rein.  Although I often do portraits of children and families, I am happy to work on any subject.

If you are local to NYC, I am happy to work from a live model for your portrait (model must be 18 or older or with parental supervision and/or consent).
