A painting that is especially for you!

I specialize in custom artwork including people and animal portraits. I love a challenge and my clients are

always joyfully thrilled with what we come up with together. 

What can I paint for you? Let's talk.


How it Works

I offer custom paintings in all sizes on ready to hang canvas. Having a custom artwork made, just for you or as a gift, can have a big and lasting positive impact. 

I'll walk you through the process with you. First, I'd like to get to know you and ask a few questions, in order to understand your vision. I can likely create a painting of anything you have an idea for, in my unique style. I love to create personal pet portraits that truly speak to the spirit of the animal. My goal is to completely capture the essence of my subjects, but with a very unique color palette.

What can you Expect?

I have an addiction to color - I absolutely love all colors! My style has been compared with the movement, started by French painter, Henry Matisse, known as Fauvism. It's described as using unnaturalistic color and vivid brushstrokes creating a spontaneous, often subjective response to nature,  expressed with bold and high-keyed, vibrant colors directly from the tube. To me it moves the soul and changes the temperature of a room filling it with joy and warmth! 

With portraits, I have never painted the same background twice. Each one is unique and led by what I feel as I get to know the subject.

I'll work from photographs that you'll provide, and stylize your images into a joyous creation of art. Or we will come up with a concept from our conversations of your vision. Then I'll make preliminary concept drawings.  As we move forward, I will keep you up to date with the process and progress.



After discussing and agreeing on moving forward, you will receive an estimate and invoice for a 50% deposit. Once the deposit is paid, I will get started on designing your custom artwork.  Check out my  Price & Size Panel  to decide what works with your budget.


There are no refunds or returns on custom made art. The initial 50% deposit is refundable up until the artwork has been started. We will have time to talk about the progress of the work and if you have suggestions along the way.  Please contact me if you have any further questions or concerns as we begin the process.


Once we are in contact, I will give you a specific time window of when to expect your work to be finished, depending on what I have on my calendar. I'll give you an estimated window of completion, which I am almost always right on target.  Typically once I begin your piece, you can expect a finished masterpiece in 3-4 weeks.  When your artwork is complete, I'll send you photos along with a final invoice for the remaining 50% + shipping.  Once final payment is received your painting will be on its way to it’s new home!   If you are local, we'll arrange a transaction plan for your artwork.

STEP 1: SUBJECT: i.e. your pet (what kind?) or a person, a special scene or specific subject. I work from photographs typically, but we'll get to those once I've contacted you.
