A commissioned oil painting makes a unique, lasting gift and is a great way to commemorate a special person, a favourite place or a loving pet.

I believe that everyone has an innate quality and flawless beauty that is waiting to be revealed.

The purpose of a portrait painting is to convey a likeness of an individual, to express those unique faultless qualities of the person and to transform a photo into a work of art.

The commission process begins by choosing 1 of 4 portrait categories that suits your desired painting style: Self, Lifestyle, Surreal and Pet/Animal. Below are examples of each category.

The price of an oil painting is calculated based on the size of the canvas and complexity of the subject. Please note that oil paintings take a minimum of 3 months to complete.

A Certificate of Authenticity is provided with each painting.

If you would like a custom oil painting to fit your needs, please contact me via the contact form.

I look forward to creating an original piece of art with you.
