PERSONAL AND FAMILY PORTRAITS include portraits of individuals, family groups, children, anniversary and wedding tributes, people and their pets.

CORPORATE AND INSTITUTIONAL PORTRAITS include college and university presidents, professors and deans, civic and political leaders, medical professionals, ministers and religious leaders, corporation executives and board members, judges and attorneys, sports and entertainment figures. Portraits are often painted to honor major charitable donors.

POSTHUMOUS PORTRAITS are done to honor lost loved ones and are often an important part of the healing process.

Most portrait commissions range from $3500 – $20,000.
