Portraits are created from your photos.  Photos must
be clear and sharp with accurate color and detail.  
Close-ups of eyes and head are required to capture
likeness and personality.  A good photo is the
foundation to a beautiful work of art you will be proud
to own.  Tips on taking photos of your loved ones are
included on this site.
Artwork commissioned is for personal use only & not
for financial gain.  I retain sole reproduction copyright
on all my artwork.  Artwork may not be used or
reproduced without written consent of the artist.
