Some of my favorite portraits to do are the ones where the person is looking away or making a face that shows their personality. These drawings of R and M show a side of their personality that a straight forward, shoulders and up portrait might not. Such cute kids!

Capture your child in a unique way

Have the youthfulness of your child frozen in time with something other than a photograph. This portrait will always remind T's parents of her beautiful eyes and sweet smile.

Portraits make great wedding gifts

A hand-drawn portrait makes an unforgettable and meaningful wedding (or anniversary!) gift. For this one, I used T & E's engagement picture to capture this moment in time they will never want to forget.

Some favorites

Here are a couple of my favorites. You can click on the image to get a closer look at the detail of my drawings. This first one is one of my little boys. I've always loved his smile!
The second one is my parents-in-law when they got married. I used pictures from two different photographs and combined them into one. They make a handsome couple!
