The painting is more beautiful in person.

Beautiful piece! The print I received is slightly larger than the listed 16"x20" dimensions so worked with shop owner. It comes rolled in the mail (which they state in the details). The eyes are amazing and can't wait to display.

They are stunning. I chose three pictures and they arrived safely and quickly. I can't wait to hang them as a set in my office. Thank you- would certainly order again.

These are more than invitations, they're memories! They turned out so beautiful and would definitely repurchase from this shop!

Absolutely love our home portrait! My mom cried when I gave it to her for Christmas. Audrey was super great to work with, I definitely recommend.

The invite was exactly how pictured! So cute! It did not come in a jpeg or pdf, but my friend figured out how to print & size it. I used a paper cutter to cut it out. Turned out perfect and the Mom loved it! Thank you for being so great & quick at answering all my questions too.

Great to work with. Very responsive and we absolutely love the print.
I wanted to go on an adventure.
And I'm not talking airplane rides and mountains
(but how those do make my heart soar)!
It had to be one that would last more than a few weeks' vacation.
One that had the potential to fail.
One that would pull me and stretch me and require much.
One that would birth from my passion and have plenty of space for the unexpected.
I wanted an adventure in making beautiful things.
The watercolor shop of Audrey DeFord was born.
I am a few years in and loving every second of it.
Our world is big and bright and brimming full with curious masterpieces. It demands to be reveled in. There is much to celebrate. There is much to mourn.
Painting is one of the several ways I celebrate this crazy unpredictable life we've been given.
Come, join in the brightness. An adventure has begun.
