A portrait brings meaning to a space, transforming a wall into a story about the people who live there, lending gravitas and emotional depth to the home. Portraits, more than any other genre of art, are literally linked to the environment in which they are seen. A portrait in a living room is a tribute to the subject’s importance within the family, just as a portrait of a founder of a company celebrates his or her contribution to that enterprise.
Beyond being decorative works of art, portraits ultimately become a visual heirloom: passed down through the generations, elegantly tying the past to the present, illustrating where a family has been, and defining whom they are. The portrait has meaning to both the parents who delight in the features of their growing children and to the children themselves, who feel a strong sense of belonging within the family.
My heart is to help enrich the lives of the families we work with by creating iconic portraits that will have an enduring impact, strengthen family bonds, and bring joy to all who view them.
