Celebrating Your Home

Keeping your memories close to your heart with custom art.

Front Porch Portraits offers architectural illustrations designed to celebrate all of life’s special moments. Beginning with a hand drawn sketch, followed by watercolor brush strokes, and finally finished with inked details, Andrea captures the nostalgia of your childhood home, the romance of the church you wed, and the excitement when you purchase a new home.

When you are given a gift from Front Porch Portraits, you are receiving more than an original watercolor illustration. You are commemorating and honoring the special landmarks of your life. You are revisiting your childhood days and teenage adventures.

You are finally coming home.

Welcome.

    I capture the small joys that our homes bring within my watercolor illustrations. I love sketching the windows & doors of each home & the first blush of color as they kiss the page. I love the joy a customer feels when they receive their piece of art

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

Gift wrapping is also available and I can send your purchase directly to the gift recipient. At checkout please enter their address, mark that it is a 'gift', and leave a gift message. It will be included instead of a receipt. Be sure to write your name on it, so they know who sent their gift.

International Shipping

I am happy to ship my art outside of the United States. Please note that import fees, taxes and VAT charges are the responsibility of the customer and are not paid for within the purchase.

Custom and personalized orders

I’d love to work with you to create a piece of art that represents a special place in your life. Together, we can make minor revisions to the house photo you send - like removing trees or changing the season. I can add words within the the bushes and tree or include the address or "Our First Home" on the portrait. During the painting process, I will check in with you to ensure you love the results.

Good Photo for Great Results

I need a well-lit, front facing photo of the home with the least amount of obstructions to create a painting you will love. You might find a good photo from a real estate listing or Google maps.

Landscaping & Seasons

I can paint the home's landscape to suit the house and season. Share any specifics when submitting your order, such as:
-Trees to be included/removed.
-Fall leaves, spring flowers, azalea bushes.
-Adding greenery around the base of the house.

How do I send you my photo for the painting?

After you make your purchase, go to "You" in the top right corner of your screen, select "Purchases & Reviews" and click "Contact the Shop". You can send me a message with any additional details and attach the image(s).

Can you add people or pets?

I don't include people or pets in my portraits. I focus on the landscape and architecture of the building, capturing the details that make it unique.
