Custom Portraits

Want a gift your family will cherish forever?  Commission a digital or traditional watercolor portrait created by me!  Portraits come ready to place in an 8x10 frame.

What's the difference between digital and traditional watercolor?  As an illustrator I work primarily with digital tools like Photoshop.  I've created a unique style that flawlessly mimics traditional watercolor.  After I've sketched and painted the image digitally, color changes and tweaks are easy because I can edit things with the click of a mouse. 

My traditional watercolor style blends watercolor washes and watercolor pencils on high quality cold pressed watercolor paper.  No mouse clicks here, so it takes more time, but you get an original work of art your family can cherish for years.

No matter what option you choose, it's easy to get started.  Email me and we'll talk about what sort of photo you should send.  I'll do a rough sketch that you can approve.  Then I'll create a final portrait.  With nine years of experience working with all sorts of clients as a children's book illustrator, I know how to make sure you are thrilled with the final piece of art.

Pricing*:

Digital Portrait: $75

Traditional Portrait: $150

*Pricing includes up to 4 family members.  Obviously, painting multiple people takes longer than painting only several.  If you have a large family (or 12 dogs), we'll work together to develop fair pricing.
