Portraits and Other Custom Work
A Very Special Gallery

Portraits of special animals and people in colored pencil was my specialty for 25 years. I have painted commissions in many media, but now that my main work is painting on ceramic tile, I can now say that they are truly immortalized!

Prices are higher for portraits than for other commissioned work, and vary considerably depending on which media you choose, ceramic tile, colored pencil or acrylic painting, so contact me for estimates.
