If you're wanting people added into your house, cottage, landscape, cityscape or business painting that's an option. Simply look for the 'add on' option under the 'Items' area on the left side of my shop page.
Something to note: when adding figures to a portrait, the smaller the people are the more difficult it is to capture their unique facial features.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

It's always best to place an order early if you need it for a specific date/event and check availability before placing the order. A waiting list is periodically in effect during any given season.

I always work as quickly as possible and portraits are scheduled back-to-back.

***Christmas orders start arriving as early as September.

Sizing details

Pages are cut to the size ordered (unless otherwise requested) and they are taped down during production to reduce shifting or warping (for watercolours). The final piece(s) have an approx. quarter inch clean boarder surrounding them as a result of the taping process.
This boarder it usually left for matting purposes but can be trimmed if needed.

Care instructions

Each portrait, no matter the medium used, is sprayed with sealant after completion and placed inside a clear envelope/page protector. When you receive your portrait(s) they must be framed behind glass in order to protected them from dirt, dust, moisture, fingerprints, etc.

***It's recommended to display them away from direct sunlight to reduce the chance of them fading or becoming dull over time.
