Custom Portraits and Fine Art

every creation begins with a memory

unique, memory inspired masterpieces for your home

Using your favorite photographs.

Special times in our lives create memories we hold dear in our hearts.

You want art for your home but don't have time to search the internet, go to shows or meet with interior designers.

You will know what you like when you see it, so it only seems logical to work with an artist who understands you, your unique style and your vision.

Commissioning art work is much easier than you might think....

From our first contact, maybe a phone call, text or an in-home visit, you will be led through the complete process. I will listen to your desires as you explain the vision you have for your personal art. We will create a plan and I will present you with several draft images while maintaining close communication through every step of the creative process assuring you that the final masterpiece will meet your expectations.

Photographs are a record of experiences. Some of those images become very precious to us and we find comfort, love and laughter viewing them. I will use your photo or photos to create a masterpiece for your home. I also specialize in developing custom works of art based on your creative visions, dreams and the concepts formed in your imagination.

The first step in this process is to contact me (email or call 253 350 3147) to have a conversation around your thoughts and desires. If you want the masterpiece based on one or several photos you can send them to me in several different ways so I can give you feedback on the possibilities of your art.

Don't forget your travel photos

 This large mural was created with photographs taken during a trip to Prague. This is a great way to remember that dream trip. The collage was produced about 10 feet long and nicely fills the wall in the formal dining room.

I like would to create a masterpiece for your home.
