From Curiosity into Creation

While I've always been a creative and artistically minded person, my passion for portraits stems from a frantic search for the perfect gift for my boyfriend for our two year anniversary. At that point, we had two dogs and a cat, and we just weren't (still aren't!) the type to be very comfortable in front of a camera. So, I had the thought that I could find an artist to draw us in a scene, all together, because the chances of any group shot with three animals and two shy adults landing with everyone facing the camera and looking their best all at the same time, seemed unlikely. Plus, I thought, it would be a custom piece of artwork that we could keep as a sweet time capsule of who we were at that moment. I ended up commissioning a friend's incredibly talented son to draw it, and I absolutely LOVE what he created for us, but the idea mixed with my natural instinct to DIY, and I couldn't let the idea go. I decided to try it out for myself and see what I could come up with.

What followed was many, many, many hours developing techniques, creating drafts and then starting over. and a few finished products that I was incredibly proud of at the time (though I cringe just a bit at them now!). Over many hours of trial and error, however, I started to develop a unique and personal style that I was really happy with, and started to spread the word. Now, I'm so excited to be able to create fun and colorful custom portrait pieces for people all over! Every single relationship has its own story, jokes, and beginnings, and it's one of my absolute joys to be able to hear all the happy stories that go into the personal details of each piece.
