I am a portrait artist out of Greenville, NC and I have been drawing and painting for 20 years. I sold my first portrait at age 16 and went on to study art at UNCW. I work in oil, pastel and watercolor. I use only the finest quality watercolor paints and paper. You must have good quality reference photographs, although minor changes can be made (such as the color of the shirt). I will email you photos of the finished portrait before I mail it to make sure you are happy with it. . This is an heirloom that will be passed down from generation to generation. Turn around time is 2-3 weeks.
