I purchased this item as a gift for one of my clients whom recently purchased their first home. It was perfect! The painting was beautiful and such a great gift for these new homeowners. Highly recommend! Thank you!

Amanda was so easy to work with. Quick response time, sent updates as she went, and was very patient with the many (jumbled) messages I sent. I had 3 pictures made as a gift and she captured each detail perfectly. I'd absolutely return to her to have another project made.

Customized Portraits, Illustrations, and Original Artwork

I started my shop as a way to sell the oil paintings I had done but had no room for. It's grown into a way for me to paint more frequently and experiment with new types of media and art. I used to just sell oil paintings and little watercolors, but now my focus is on custom work and portraits. All of my pieces are original paintings and drawings - not prints. Although I may offer prints in the future.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
I accept Paypal and Credit Cards (Direct Checkout through Etsy).
I generally try and ship items out within 1-3 business days (weather permitting) if an item is already created. Custom orders take anywhere from 1-2 weeks to complete depending on size. Smaller items are shipped via USPS Priority and large paintings are shipped via UPS. If you have a preferred method of shipment or would like an item overnighted, please contact me directly for pricing inquiries. Also, if you would prefer to have signature confirmation, please let me know in your note when you checkout. Please be aware that while Priority shipping is generally very fast, delivery dates are not guaranteed.
Refunds and Exchanges
I am happy to refund payment if an item arrives damaged or broken. I am also happy to refund any shipping overcharges that occur. I do not offer refunds based on shipping delays that are the fault of the post office. If your package is lost in the mail, I will do everything I can to work with you to find the missing item. If you are unhappy with your item in any way, please contact me as soon as possible after receiving the item so we can sort the matter out - preferably with a photo of any damage, etc.
Additional policies and FAQs
Keep in mind that my paintings and portraits are not photographs. They are artistic interpretations that I try and get as close as possible to their subjects, but they should not be expected to look photo realistic. I appreciate your patronage of the fine arts!
