portraits are my forte. it gives me great joy seeing people’s reaction when they see their likeness painted. a husband surprised his wife with a painting of their 2 day old baby girl and i still remember the husband describing his wife’s joy. a doctor in texas commissioned his boss’ painting for his going away party – the stories are endless.

if you would like to commission a portrait, head over to the contact page and drop me a message. all i need from you are 2 – 3 photos. coffee being a monochormatic medium, by sending 2-3 pictures, you give me a chance to evaluate the light angles for the best outcome. i prefer a higher resolution picture, but send me what you have and I will work with it. the distractor loves animals and would love to paint your pet for you (be it a rabbit, snake, dog, cat… you get the drift)
