Commissioning a Portrait

  My mission is to show every person that they are loved and accepted for who they are. These portraits are a stunning way to show your loved ones how much they mean to you!

  Whether you want to capture a moment in time, commemorate a wedding, or simply capture your loved one's personality on canvas, now is the perfect time to get their unique portrait.

  It's your choice whether you want an Enneagram Portrait, a Silhouette, or a Personality Portrait: Each portrait is unique and beautiful.
   Personality Portraits use colors and imagery to capture the personalities and imaginations of the subjects, so that each portrait is a painting, not just of what they look like, but of who they are.

I am SO thankful to have a personality portrait of my children when they were a toddler and baby. Their relationship has always been precious, but Holly captured where they were in their stages of development, their personalities, and their love for each other in their personality portrait. I am thankful to have these paintings to pass on to my children when they grow up, and to look back on as our family matures.

“Holly is an amazing person and artist. She’s very invested into her customers and followers as well as the work she does for them. My now fiancé who is not generally a super emotional person, immediately started crying when he saw it. I couldn’t be more happy with her and her engaging qualities, not just in her art, but in her interactions!”

Holly somehow manages to infuse your feelings into her artwork so it perfectly represents what you’re wanting to capture. She puts surprise details and hidden meanings into her work that provide layers of meaning. It makes the picture so much more special than just a literal rendering. It’s just so perfect. The whole process was so therapeutic.

How does it work?

or filling out the contact form below!


Let's get started!
Send me a picture of the
person(s) you'd like me to paint, and tell me all about them!

We'll discuss colors,

their favorite things, whatever you have in mind.

It's okay if you aren't sure - I make it easy!

The Sketch


  Once we've decided on the imagery we want to use with the portrait, I'll do a couple different sketches.

  You'll be able to choose which composition you like best, and make any suggestions or changes before we move on to the full-size drawing.

Color Study


   We're almost there!

At this point, I might do a color study to make sure you like the colors we picked out - especially if you weren't sure or we had a few different options to choose from.

   These color studies are done in photoshop, to give us a quick idea of what it will look like.

The Final Painting


    I'll transfer the full-size sketch onto watercolor paper, and all of our hard work will come together into a beautiful, one of a kind painting!

   You'll give the final approval before it's carefully wrapped up and shipped to your doorstep.
