It is an honour to capture a personal story through a commissioned painting.

Two prominent themes of commissions have emerged over the years: Home Portraits and Pet Portraits.

Home Portraits

Home portraits capture years of life spent with loved ones. They capture dreams realized. They depict journey. Here is a sample of home portraits I’ve painted. Click an image to read the related blog post.

Pet Portraits

A pet is a member of the family, and sometimes is better company than anybody else. Here are some pet portraits I’ve had the honour of working on over the years. Click an image to read the associated blog post.

Story Portraits

Story Portraits are a unique way to showcase a montage of memories. Customized to include as few or as many elements as desired, spanning a short or long time frame, a Story Portrait makes for an extra-thoughtful gift for someone special.
