Artist Studio In Hamburg NY

Based in Hamburg, NY—the Buffalo, NY area—watercolor portrait painting has been a passion for over 20 years. Consequently, many happy and satisfied customers have enjoyed custom portraits of pets, anniversary paintings, home portraits, and family portraits.

Firstly, great care is taken in discussing client desires for each portrait, often requesting additional photos or descriptions to ensure satisfaction. Furthermore, custom watercolor portraits are not mere replicas of photos; they are hand-painted, original works of art to proudly display in your home. The colors can be true to life or even more vibrant than the original photo. Indeed, black and white photos have been used to create full-color paintings of homes, weddings, and people.

Additionally, only professional-grade watercolor paints on high-quality, acid-free heavy watercolor paper are used, ensuring lasting freshness of color and beauty.

Moreover, experience includes teaching classes to beginning watercolor artists at a local art gallery and artist organization.


Home Portraits

Home portraits, business portraits and landscapes make a lovely gift for anniversary, birthday, housewarming or retirement.

People & Pet Paintings

I can create a gift-worthy watercolor portrait of your loved one or pet that will be hung on a wall and treasured.
