Commission a Portrait and Make Yourself Happier, Healthier, and More Interesting.

"Looking at a work of art can actually have the same psychological effect as the euphoric experience of romantic love."
I know, I have trouble believing that too. And I look at and make the stuff every chance I get. Art that is.
And we all know that images of loved ones blow up those happy places in our brains and heart.
Art & Loved Ones. Boom. Why not combine them both?

COMMISSIONED PORTRAITS MAKE YOU HAPPIER

Part Art, Part Science

I create portraits that are scientifically designed to make you happier. Okay, artistically designed to make you happier.
Either way, the result is the same: happiness. Happiness exploding from your heart & eyeballs all over the place. And explosive happiness leads to better health. And better health makes you more interesting. Well, maybe not directly. But an amazing portrait of a loved one definitely makes life more interesting. And giving an amazing portrait as a gift makes you and a loved one happy. It's a virtuous cycle of happiness, health, and all kinds of interesting. And that's good for everybody.
It's a scientific fact. If it's not, it should be.

Memories Fade. Even Photos Fade

Commissioning a portrait for yourself or for a loved one is an incredible way to capture and preserve your memory of someone you love. It can be more memorable than the memory itself and a beautiful reminder of the people that are important. Remember or be remembered forever with the perfect piece for any home.

Unique to You and the People You Love

A commissioned portrait is a totally unique product - unique to you, just like the people you love.
It's an uniquely original way to capture a moment - more original, and in some ways more special than photography. Custom made for you or someone you love, no one else has one of these.

A Bit of Joy Every Time You Pass By

Not only is commissioned portrait is a charmingly original way to preserve a memory, it's a one-of-a-kind work of art. You will have something that matches your unique, individual taste and style. And it brings a touch of sophisticated but playful charm and originality to any home.

That's what photos are for

Isn't A Photograph Just As Good?

Photographs are great, of course. We all need and want photographs. The only problem is that everyone has them and they're rarely conversation pieces. And you also have to hire a photographer and go to a sitting. At times, they can seem posed and fake. And a photograph isn't necessarily a great gift - photos end up on a corner table and they're often updated and changed out.
Paintings are timeless. A portrait hangs on the wall forever.

Original Art with Timeless Appeal

An interesting work of original art with timeless appeal, created one brushstroke at a time with fresh and vibrant colors. Painted in a style at once uncannily realistic and charmingly impressionistic, you'll discover a new detail every time you look.

About the Artist.

Why portraits? Portraits always have an interesting effect on people. I've painted my family, living and deceased, my friends and their families. The result: tears, baby. Always tears. Everybody's a big wet mess. I'm not exactly sure what it is. Is it simply seeing someone you love in a different light? Is it the unexplainable emotion that a piece of art can stir up? Is it the combination of both? Again, I don't really know. But people are moved, and they're happy. And the family and friends they share with are moved. And everyone's grateful. That reaction from something I've created with my own two hands feels pretty special. And it's something I enjoy sharing with others.

The downside to handmade...
Limited spaces remaining.

These paintings are handmade. The only downside to that is that I have to limit the number of commissioned portraits I create each year. Spaces fill up quickly. If you're interested, act now and click below.
