The Painted Portrait

Photographs can stop time. But I've always said that paintings can transcend time.

 

I started out as a painter. Got my BA of Fine Art in 2006 from Davidson College - a small little liberal arts school close to Charlotte, NC. We were 1600 students. TOTAL. My graduating class of fellow artists was a total of 14 students. Talk about a bubble haha. I fully expected to go on creating art, but I had no idea the type of art was going to change from painting to photography. I was always meant to be a photographer, but the love for painting that Davidson instilled in me never truly left. The other day I had the urge to combine my two favorite mediums and have decided to offer this hybrid as a product at my studio.

 

As a custom commission this Painted Portrait starts out as a beautiful photograph and is then printed, painted on canvas and framed. This mixed media art piece is as luxurious as it gets and is truly something that will transcend time. I offer it in three sizes, small, large and impact and it is meant to be displayed in a prominent location in your home and will literally stop everyone in their tracks.

 

 

I invite you to come by the studio to see it in person because it is truly stunning!
