The Portrait Experience

is a rewarding family venture producing an heirloom that captures the heart and soul of loved ones.

Would you like an abstract or themed background? Do you have a ‘Dreamer’ with specific interests?

Some key considerations are where the portrait will hang (size and color) and do you prefer a formal or an informal look (clothing, photo session, background).

Portrait Fees:

Starting prices are listed here. A common size for a head & shoulders portrait is 24″x 18″.  Larger sizes are available.

  • 9″x 12″ $550
  • 16″x 20″  $1250
  • 18″x 24″  $1700
  • Pet portraits start at $350 / 8″x 10″.

Additional costs are based on the following factors: the number of people or pets in the painting; the intricacy of clothing, jewelry and props, the complexity of the background setting, and the actual size of the canvas. For each additional figure in the same portrait add 50%, pets add 25%.  A non-refundable deposit of 50% is required to begin the painting process. Balance due at completion of the commission and acceptance of the client.

The above prices do not include sales tax, framing, shipping/insurance, or travel/lodging expenses.
