I can paint any size you like; non-standard sized paintings will be created on Arches Oil Paper.

Please Note: Rush jobs or complex backgrounds may add to the pricing. Ask for details.

Pricing for portrait commissions is based on:

  • What you want in the portrait (how many faces, complexity of background)
  • What size you want your portrait to be
  • Whether you want your portrait on stretched canvas,  canvas board or on specialized paper
  • Whether you want a rush job or normal timing. Note that a rush job may not be possible for an oil painting since oil needs time to dry

A 50% non-refundable deposit is due before start of commission; the remainder is due upon completion. Prices do not include framing services; your portrait will be sent to you to frame to your preference. I’m happy to give more specifics once we know what you want your portrait to look like. View a sample of the basic commission contract here.

Pricing for Commissions that include a Mastercopy will also vary depending on the complexity of the piece you want incorporated. The painting you want copied needs to be in the Public Domain (legally available for artwork). Mastercopies with one additional face or figure start at $400; contact me for more details.

Art should be accessible to everyone. If you have any questions at all about general pricing or a piece you’d like to create together, please reach out. We can chat with no cost or commitment.

“Omgosh, it’s gorgeous! You did an outstanding job. I can’t thank you enough.”

Excited Furmom


From our baby beginnings, we love to look at faces. What we see can comfort and inspire us.

My art sets out to capture the emotions and expressions of faces we love, especially faces that are no longer with us, or furry friends that make us smile. I want to offer a Presence, so that people may always feel the love in sight of their portrait.



Our studio is located in Stoneham, Massachusetts.
