The Painted Portrait is our most elegant portrait finish and rivals the work of a traditional fine art oil portrait painter. It is a modern masterpiece in the tradition of 19th century portrait artists like John Singer Sargent.
We craft this distinctive style combining traditional photographic portraiture with hand-applied painting artistry. Our mixed media approach blends a variety of mediums and tools, from the camera to the tablet to artist brushes. Each piece is finished on a hand-stretched canvas with real oils.
Imagine your child’s portrait in a traditional style which is reminiscent of the legendary portrait painters John Singer Sargent, Thomas Gainsborough, Sir Joshua Reynolds and Rembrandt.

In the tradition of the 19th century portrait painters, this portrait of a young girl is depicted with a beautifully gentle pose and quiet expression. Her quiet beauty easily draws the viewer into the portrait and towards her eyes. The play of light and shadow across her face for this piece was inspired by portrait painter Rembrandt.
The Painted Portrait is a bridge between fine art oil painting and photographic portraiture. This unique style blends the beauty and elegance of a finely crafted oil painting with the talents of gifted portrait photographer to capture just the right pose, gesture and expression.
We invite you to trust the portrait artist who innately knows how to draw out the best of your qualities and your most authentic expression… even before the first painted stroke begins. Knowing that you’re starting with the best image possible of your child or loved one, you’ll be confident that the final art masterpiece will be one that you’ll treasure forever.

This portrait of a professional cellist evokes feelings of an emotional connection between a musician and his instrument, deeply engaged in a live performance. The art piece is by design, intentionally dark, with a touch moodiness, in order to draw in the viewer as if one could listen closely to the rich sounds of this exquisite instrument.
In our experience, a painted portrait session requires thoughtful planning and attention to detail.
Because you’re creating a special heirloom portrait, it’s important to design the elements of your portrait carefully, from your wardrobe to any specific visual elements, such as a musical instrument, an heirloom piece of jewelry, or any nostalgic item, representative of your heritage, your individuality or has deeply personal significance and meaning.
Our desire is for you to have the best experience possible. We highly recommend that we set aside a planning session here for you in the studio, one week or more in advance of your scheduled session.
