Commission a Painting

Smartphones have made taking photos incredibly easy. We take them all the time without even thinking about it, which can make these snapshots feel ordinary and perhaps not something you’d want to showcase on your wall.

What I like to do is use my painting style to highlight the extraordinary in everyday life and turn that into works of art. It could be a memorable view from a vacation or just a beautiful shot from your own neighbourhood. As an animal lover, I am also fond of doing pet portraits that offer a glimpse into their glowing personalities.

Here are some commission pieces that I have done in the past.
