While Katrina enjoys painting subject matter of her own choosing, she is often contacted for commissions. Commissions are subject matter of the customer’s choosing, but over the years two prominent themes have emerged: Pet Portraits and Home Portraits. Below is a select sampling of watercolour sketches that Katrina has done over the years for clients on each theme.

Please contact her if you are interested in a commission.

Home Portraits

Home portraits capture for many the meaningful location of years spent together as family. Clients submit photographs of the location and Katrina is able to paint from those. Multiple images are better for reference, and clients are encouraged to submit photos that show the full house along with the immediate surrounding landscape for context. Katrina has painted a number of home portraits using Google Street View for clients unable to locate pictures of a childhood home. The recommended minimum size for a home portrait is 8x10.
