Frequently Asked Questions

What is the “Legacy Of Love Portrait”?

It is my life’s passion to help parents show their love, express their child’s uniqueness and preserve that emotion for generations. I fulfill this mission by helping parents express their love and their child’s uniqueness through painting and documenting this “Legacy Of Love Portrait”. We will start by writing down love notes about your child, documenting and even shoot video of this experience. The details I’ve gathered from you are incorporated and finished into the painting and your “Legacy Of Love Portrait” is born. You can read more about this process here.

Each “Legacy Of Love Portrait” will include love notes, photos, on pastel and oil portraits videos and your unique fine art portrait.  You can read more about this process here.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT TO SPEND ON MY Legacy Of Love PORTRAIT?

Commissioned Portrait fees and documentation range from $3500 to $7000 for pastel and oil. Pencil and Charcoals start at $2,000.

WHAT ABOUT A FRAME?

Conservation framing is very important. There are specific guidelines for framing portraiture and certain archival considerations only a professional knows. I have devoted years to understanding what a pastel and oil portrait needs to archive their beauty and have also developed relationships with many great frame shops. I am happy to assist you with this decision.

How long does it take to complete the Legacy Of Love Portrait?

Each portrait is unique, and each collector is provided with an estimate based on the factors below:

  • Date and availability the commission is booked
  • Complexity of portrait
  • Travel time, if applicable

Once the portrait and documentation is started it generally takes 30 days to paint then we can schedule the unveiling.

Why do you limit to 12 Legacy Of Love Portrait's a year?

I love helping parents express their love and celebrate their child’s uniqueness. It is also important for me to continue do other works of art for my collectors while nurturing and spending time with my family.

Do you do other commisioned art other than the "legacy of love portraits"

I have painted painted both commissioned portraits and landscapes for over 25 years. Both landscapes and portraits have been acquired by notable public collectors such as Carolinas HealthCare System Stanly’s Roy M. Hinson Cancer Center, Appalachian State University, Windstream Concord Telephone and numerous private collections. You can see more of these works on my Commissioned Artwork Gallery. I would love to create a commissioned artwork uniquely yours!
