Where do we start?
The best route to heirloom art is to begin with a studio portrait session styled with the end in mind. Sometimes circumstance makes this impractical. Have no fear, I can also create beautiful pieces from your own images as long as you are the original creator, or can provide proof of permission to use.
How It Works
Your artwork is designed to beautifully compliment your home and style. Each stroke is hand rendered and deliberately placed in the final artwork based on reference images. Expression and personality are carried into the final piece while distractions are eliminated, allowing the subject to shine.
The End Result
Fine Art Commissions are sold as completed pieces of wall art. Hand stretched canvas is sealed and framed by Master Craftsmen. Frames from minimalist to traditional are sure to suit any aesthetic. Choose a handmade Museum frame for a show-stopping installation.
Low Resolution Cell Phone Images Provided by The Client
Even if your original images are low quality, they can become cherished pieces of art for your home. These four dogs were part of their humans' lives over different periods of time. The client wanted to surprise her husband by commissioning a single, large piece of wall art featuring all of them.
Poor backgrounds and distracting elements from the original images are eliminated, leaving the subjects to shine in the finished piece.
"Baby Blues" Transformation
Little sister was jealous of big sister getting the camera and spotlight for a bit, so we let her pose with the sun hat and small bouquet. Two years old is a tough age for perfect posing, but this one stole Mom's heart.
A great expression is often the only baseline requirement for a piece of precious art that tugs at the heartstrings. The color of the hat and dress were adjusted to match, some of the details are simplified, and everything is painted together for a soft cohesive finished piece.Book a Consultation
Handcrafted From Start To Finish
After your hand rendered commission is completed in the studio, it is meticulously finished by master craftsmen. There is no detail overlooked in creating your museum quality heirloom art. The canvas is selected, stretched and cut by hand. The artwork is bonded to the canvas and stretched over solid wood. Additional brushwork is applied to the sealed canvas, elevating the textural qualities of each stroke. Finally the canvas is mounted in a frame specifically curated to enhance the beauty of the artwork, as well as to compliment your home and decor.
Traditional Oil Painting vs Hand Rendered Mixed Media Art
A hand painted portrait is a true work of art. In today's world of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and software that gets more and more powerful, it can be hard to understand how art is created. For the highest quality results, a hand rendered fine art commission is the best investment.
Commissions of people, pets, and places can be created from your own photographs, or images created in the studio. All commissions include a design consultation, one approval checkpoint, and complimentary installation (in the local DFW area).
