About

It runs in the family

I come from a long line of entrepreneurs. My Grandpa Lloyd owned an antique shop, an ostrich farm, a hotel and started up a still-successful embroidery shop with his wife, Johnnie. Jewelry design, cake decorating, and painting all linger in the family tree.

Family is everything. It’s how we measure our lives and fill our hearts. It writes our history and takes joy in our futures. Family is where my love of art and portraiture comes from. A portrait of someone you love isn’t just a picture anymore. It’s a memory brought back to life and someone remembered forever. It’s a snapshot turned into a treasure.

Custom Portraits and Commissions:

● See my portfolio for examples of my work: http://alainaferguson.artworkfolio.com/

I believe in taking special care with each and every custom artwork and take anywhere from 55 to 120 hours for each one to create something truly special for you.

Remember, I am not limited to portraits! If you have a furry friend, favorite location, home, or heirloom item, I can create a piece of artwork for you, too!

As I work, I will take pictures of my progress of your drawing and email them to you for feedback and updates! I love to share a bit of the process with you, so you can see how it's done and the work behind it. This keeps us in contact and communicating until the art arrives safely at your door!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

● So, how do we start?
Email/convo me! Let me know what you are interested in or send me a picture if you already have one in mind for me to draw from. I am always happy to walk you through the process of choosing sizes and mediums that will best fit what you are looking for.
**All my mediums and sizes are detailed below to give you a head start.**

● Payment process?
Once you are decided on what you would love, I can either set up a custom listing for you here on Etsy, or I can send you a direct invoice through Paypal. If you are interested in a payment plan, I am flexible in working with you on that, too!

● Which pictures are best to work from?
High Quality! The clearer and more detailed the picture, the more realistic your artwork will be! If you are interested in a portrait, make sure facial features are clear and defined so that I can work my absolute best to make it look like your loved one.


● ● Shipping is not included as it is different for each area and Artwork size.●●

♥Lainy’s Chalk and Charcoal ♥ – My own unique trademark medium that uses a special blend of chalk and charcoal pencils and a highly textured paper. I also use powdered forms of each that I grind and mix by hand for the perfect texture. The chalk’s special qualities catch light and add a lifelike edge to every portrait that makes them ‘pop’ right out of the paper!

-Due to its special qualities, I do not seal this medium with fixative or
sealant as it dims the chalk and charcoal values. My alternative? A high
quality Non-glare acrylic glass with a protective UV coat. This is included
with your commission prices and is safe for shipping!
-A simple white matting and foam-core backing is also included! If you are interested in a custom color, please contact me for options.

*8x10 ---$150
*9x12----$180

*18x24---$350


+$30 for additional portraits, full body, detailed background, or high detail
pieces.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

♥Charcoal♥ - With this medium I mainly use charcoal to create value and depth, using chalk for only bright highlights and details. I use a much smoother paper that makes it easier to capture a lot of detail and texture for that photo-realistic touch.

-Sealed with a protective fixative that prevents smudging and fading.
-A simple white matting and foam-core backing is also included! If you are interested in a custom color, please contact me for options.

♥Pastels/ Tinted Charcoal♥ – This is the ultimate crossover from my charcoal mediums for color. If you love the way chalk and charcoal looks but really want a full color piece, this is the way to go! I use pastel pencils, bars, as well as powdered forms of any color that I grind and mix by hand. I also use shades of tinted charcoal for darker colors and colored pencils over top for detailing.
