Pastels are pure pigments mixed with binders and have been in use since the Renaissance. They add a lifelike dimension to the work and are a classic option for portraits. I love creating these pieces and thinking about the life that the art will have as it is passed down from generation to generation.

Tax is additional if in N.C. 10% discount for ordering multiple portraits at the same time.
HOW TO GET STARTED:
Email me through the CONTACT page. You can send me high resolution photos from family photo shoots, school pictures, or a simple photo studio near you. Most of the time iPhone photos work as well. I can tell you pretty quickly if they won’t work. The better the photos, the more detail I am able to achieve. We can chat about colors, sizes and price etc. I require a $100 deposit to hold your spot on my calendar.
