Pictured: A study of Ruben's 'The Holy Family,' painted at the Chicago Art Institute during my art studies. Oil on Canvas. 24x20

My painting style is inspired by historical artists Rubens, Degas, Renoir and Mary Cassatt. Many of my paintings have a soft impressionistic style combined with the depth of chiaroscuro.

If you'd like to commission a painting in this style, send me a message for more information.

    Wow! Seriously, I'm amazed. Catherine completed my custom painting in a very timely manner. When it arrived I just cried lol. It was so touching and emotional seeing my photograph come to life. Our conversations were detailed and very easy. Catherine made this so easy! I'll definitely be ordering another custom painting!!

    Cathy did an INCREDIBLE job. The painting looks just like the photo I sent her, but with that extra flair to make it special.

    Her communication was really great. I didn't know exactly what style I wanted, but she gave me a few ideas and made me feel very comfortable.

    I had this painting made as a gift, and Cathy even included a birthday card for me! My friend loves her new piece of art to remember her beloved Simon.
