I am finally able to share what I lovingly labored over this holiday season. I'm so humbled and honored to have these wonderful people share their lives with me! Each portrait was designed uniquely and hand-painted. I discussed with the client their hopes for the piece, the reason they were commissioning it, and all of the details that made their family or relationship special. We looked at heritage, birthplace symbols, hobbies, and shared personal triumphs and even losses. It's wonderful to meet new people and get to know their stories. Some wanted to be represented with bright colors, others wanted simplicity, but each (I hope) received a piece that they will treasure for years to come.
These aren't just for the holidays! Let me know if you want to commission a portrait. If there's one here, that you especially liked, you get in touch with me, and we'll talk further. This is one of my most favorite parts of my job. The connection with strangers that can turn into friends because we are sharing our lives together.
Much love this holiday season, so all you reading this out there. <3
