Affordable ART for Small Spaces

FINE ART for SMALL SPACES                                                               

The Bouquet, Watercolor

With the current trend in downsizing comes a decrease in available wall space.  As a result, the art chosen for these walls must be size-appropriate while making a statement. In order to accommodate this trend, the majority of my artwork is 8.5.x11, 11 x 8.5,11 x 14 and 14 x 11 inches. The artwork can be framed in larger frames and/or grouped together for larger spaces.

AFFORDABLE ART
I strongly believe that everyone should be able to enjoy fine art in their homes and offices and as a result, I am offering my original drawings and paintings as affordable digital prints.
CUSTOM ART
If you would like a drawing or painting in your favorite colors, please contact me.

PENCIL PORTRAIT COMMISSIONS

About PENCIL PORTRAIT Commissions
Having a PENCIL PORTRAIT of an ancestor or child, or even of yourself, is very special…
… an addition to your home to enjoy now, and a treasured family heirloom for generations to come.

PENCIL PORTRAITS are original works of art signed by the artist created from your existing photograph (black & white or color, recent or ancestral; 8×10 preferred but can use 4×6). Individual photos can be combined into one pencil portrait for an additional charge.

PENCIL PORTRAITS are suitable for birthdays, grandparent’s gifts, pre-school through high school graduation, Mother’s Day & Father’s Day, children’s recitals, sports events, holiday cards & gifts, and much more.

The PENCIL PORTRAIT is drawn in graphite pencil on 11×14″ acid-free 2-ply White Bristol Paper. In order to preserve the freshly drawn quality of the pencil portrait, the finished portrait is not sprayed with a fixative. The PENCIL PORTRAIT is shipped flat and ready for framing.

The PENCIL PORTRAITS that I create from your photographs are an excellent likeness of the individual, and reflect the spirit within. You won’t be disappointed.

To commission a charcoal pencil portrait to be drawn from your vintage or recent black and white or color photograph, please visit my Etsy Shoppe at:
