COMMISSION A PORTRAIT
"You are beautiful -
if I had something to say to the world, this would be it;
this is what I try to express in my portraits."
Each one of us has moments in our lives we witness our ability to be resilient, courageous, loving and just plain amazing. As an artist I am interested in capturing where this comes from - the soulful, unique and intangible beauty each of us hold inside, then turning it into a tangible visual image.
If you are interested in commissioning a portrait, please use the form below to send me an inquiry. I provide free of charge initial consultations to answer questions you have and explain the process. I do not try to sell you on commissioning a portrait, I am more interested in finding out about you to see if I am the right artist for you.
Costs for portraits start at $500 for an 8x10", and go up to $6,000+ for a 30x36" or larger. Price is also reflective of complexity and number of people in the portrait; a precise quote is given during a consultation.
Portrait mediums available are oil, pastel and graphite/pencil. Turn around time is typically 2 to 6 months.
Thank you for your interest and many blessings to you and your family.
"Christine's attitude is like a lens, which magnifies the uniqueness of her subjects,
showing the capability of a portrait to manifest and celebrate human dignity.”
