Thank you so much again for creating these silhouettes of my children. I gave them to my husband as a Christmas gift and he is very pleased with them. Jessica S.

This was such a wonderful experience! The most precious parts of my kids were captured perfectly in the drawings that we received. We worked closely to draft and revise until everything was exactly as I had hoped. My thoughts and reviews were taken seriously and I was assured that my complete satisfaction was what was most important. Mission accomplished <3

About

Creating personal art has always been my goal.

At this moment in time, children are more documented than any generation that has come before. Yet there is something in a hand drawn portrait that can capture more of their essence and the truth of their personality than a hundred snapshots by a smart phone.

When my daughter was two years old, I began sketching her as a way to document her sweet, ever maturing features. Friends began asking me to sketch their children as well, and soon I began getting requests from friends of friends! I decided to open TheElegantStylus in 2014 as a way to bring drawing back in to my daily life. This passion for portraiture expanded into cameo silhouettes.

Adult coloring books are racing to the top of best seller lists, and it makes perfect sense why! I have always enjoyed coloring beautiful black and white images, and vintage books filled with the engravings have always been my favorite coloring book. A chance gift by a book seller friend provided me with my first two books of engravings. After coloring two images and hanging them in our front hallway, I realized that others may enjoy the beauty of such embellished images, too!

    I have loved drawing ever since I was a little girl. I honed my sketching and graphic design skills during college, and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art in 2007. As a full time mom of two, finding creative outlets is a must!

Refunds and Exchanges
Portraits: As I do not watermark the high-resolution image files I send you, no refunds will be made after the first draft has been submitted.

Prints: All sales are final; no refunds or exchanges after the print has been shipped via USPS. Insurance and traking information not included in shipping and handling rates. Please specify if you would like to add either of these features to your purchase price before submitting your order.
Additional policies and FAQs
I retain the right to use any portraits and source photos as samples of my work in future shop listings. However, please let me know if you would prefer that your child's photo not be used.

Please allow up to one week for the artistic process. During that time I will send you multiple drafts for your consideration and to make sure I'm properly capturing your child. You know your child best, and I value your feedback! No later than one week after the portrait's purchase, I will send you the completed portrait and after that time no more adjustments will be made unless we have previously agreed upon a different schedule.
