"When we consider giving art as a gift (whether for another or for ourselves), it's an expression of love. Unlike the
latest electronic toy, the gift of Art is meant to last, to be a part of life, to be passed to the people who are important
to us.

You may feel a little nervous about acquiring, or commissioning, a piece because you think, 'I don't know a lot
about Art...'

That's okay. That's not relevant. What is important is, that whether you are thinking about a piece as a gift for
yourself or as a gift for someone else, you feel a connection with it.

I'm here to make the experience as rewarding as possible."

Pastel Portraits

Enter Pastel Portrait Gallery

Pastel portraits are rich and luminous, due to the special properties of soft pastel. Because of the medium, they do need to be handled with extra care when framing. Please note that I do not use any kind of fixative on my pastel paintings, as I know from painful first-hand experience that spraying a pastel piece with fixative, while helping (not eliminating) the possible smudge issue, also sinks the pastel pigments into the paper. This dulls the painting, effectively eliminating the luminous quality which sets soft pastel apart. I do provide tips on proper handling with the painting when it is shipped, although you are always welcome to contact me with questions regardless. Pastel portraits may be created in any size  , according to your individual needs and preference. Below is a list of "standard" sizes and prices to provide you with an idea; custom sizes are priced on an individual basis. Prices are based on single-subject portraits; additional subjects are between $40 to $70 each, depending on the size.

8" x 10" - $325

11" x 14" - $375

16" x 20 " - $435
