Traditional artwork portrait package
$550.00 – $2,497.00
Professional, fine art portrait created from your photos. Children, adults, grandparents, or wedding portraits are just the beginning.
Original hand drawn, mixed media portrait – choice of sizes
When we honor someone with a custom artwork portrait of them; it captures a moment in time and brings it into forever. Allowing that person, their energy, their portrait to be cherished for generations to come.
Colored pencils and the mediums I use allow for incredibly detailed portraits with rich, vibrant colors. I use a mixture of colored pencils, watercolor, and occasionally acrylic to achieve your portrait.
Most common portrait types:
- The person doing their craft (guitarist, painter, woodworker, etc)
- End of life – this is a portrait for either general aging or you find out someone is sick and you want to make sure to get a portrait of them and celebrate them while they are still here.
- Memorial – after a loved one has passed.
This traditional package includes the ability to order additional prints of your artwork to pass along to the family as well. This extends the reach of your artwork investment and those who also love the subject of the portrait. These can be purchased as a single print or order larger quantities for cousins, siblings, etc. All prints and ornaments are discounted when buying along with a portrait.
Traditional Artwork Portrait Package includes:
- Professional, hand-drawn portrait on thick bristol paper.
- Ability to order prints, canvas prints, ornaments, or other items with your loved one’s portrait on them at a discount. Portrait prints can be shipped directly to family members, saving one person from having to box and ship artwork to everyone. We can coordinate to have them all arrive near your loved one’s birthday, Mother’s, or Father’s Day, or Christmas if you wish.

The current waitlist openings are for July, 2022. Once I begin your portrait, the typical timing is 2-4 weeks for me to finish. Rush orders are available and will put your print at the front of the line for me to work on as immediately as possible beginning in July. This has been helpful for people needing it in time for a funeral or other event.
What I need from you to help create the best portrait possible:
- Clear photo(s)- I work from photos, so you’ll simply supply one or more clear photos for me to work from. The clearer the better.
- If you choose to have more than one person together in a single piece of artwork you can supply a clear photo that features all subjects or you can give supply separate clear photos and we can put them together into a single picture.
- After I receive your order I will email you, you can respond to that email and send your photos.
- I’ll work with you to determine the style of the portrait you’d like. Some questions to ask yourself: Do you want the face cropped (cut off) on the sides creating a fun whimsical portrait or do you like the more formal and regal style portraits. Other options include zoomed-out images with important surroundings, could be a musician playing with a full setup around them or a child in a field, grandma slicing vegetables or sewing with her surroundings around her, etc.
Other Artwork Portrait options:

Frequently asked questions:
Q) Do you draw from pictures? – A) yes. I prefer to draw from pictures.
Q) I’m sensitive about wrinkles, can you minimize them for me? A) Of course. Keep in mind that if you’re 60, if I take away all lines it will look strange, I will minimize them though keep their effect subtle while still capturing the uniqueness and beauty of you.
Q) Can I have more than one person in the picture? A) Yes. Select the number of subjects you’d like to have in a single portrait. If the photo you provide shows both people then I will work to recreate that image. You can also supply two separate photos and I can put them together in one drawing.
Q) Do you draw cats or dogs? A) Yes. I’m open to any type of pet. You can find that listing here.
Q) Do these drawings come framed? A) No, these drawings will ship out flat and will not be in a frame. If you need framing suggestions or size suggestions please ask. I have an excellent framer I work with if you would like suggestions on framing just let me know.
Q) Can I get something else drawn instead of a person or pet? A) Yes. Recently I drew a bride’s floral bouquet from her wedding. I’ve also had people ask about a child’s favorite toy, a house or cabin portrait, an old tractor, and more. I’ve also drawn cars, shoes, and ball caps. If you have something in mind please ask and I’ll give you a custom quote. Thanks
