Nettie Kaye perfectly captured the quiet, casually mischievous nature of our son. (My husband thinks he looks like a young rogue from a fantasy novel. He asked "Where's his sword?" when I showed him the portrait.)
Portraits on Etsy since 2008
I began selling my painting on Etsy in December of 2008. I was in the midst of battling the debilitating disease of Rheumatoid arthritis and knew that my energy could no longer sustain the pounding of promoting my works into the galleries. I needed a way to do it in my pajamas if I had too!
I began by drastically lowering my prices painting for people who could not ordinarily afford my work. It was real joy. It also gave me a huge amount of painting experience as I painted over 50 paintings in 2009!
Now, after more than 200 paintings sold, my business is actually helping to sustain my family.
I also began a Children's art academy through McCall College in 2015 called, "Wee da Vinci." I teach weekly classes for kids, ages 5-12 in the high mountains 100 miles north of Boise, Idaho.
Nettie Kaye Williams
Owner, Maker, Designer, Oil Painter, Portraitist, Instructor
I am an artist, musician, writer, instructor, and public speaker. My works include several commissioned paintings of Nobel Laureate Scientists from California Institute of Technology. I love to paint people, animals, and still life primarily.
Backgrounds can vary as well. You may choose, what I would call, a "Rembrandt" like background which is usually in a darker,smooth texture. This background sets off the highlights of the face beautifully. The other is more textured and colorful.
Paintings with a full scenery background can also be painted. They are considerably more expensive, but beautiful works of art. Let me know and I will be happy to give you a quote.
