Custom Watercolour Portrait

A lovely keepsake, your custom watercolour portrait will be a gift to remember. I sweetly interpret your photos in a whimsical yet classic style, with time taken for details, shading, and personality. Read the "How to Order" section below, then you may begin your order. Simply choose whether you'd prefer to receive a printable or shipped print (see below for more details). The result - a beautiful watercolour keepsake that will be treasured for years to come. *Please note - frames are not included*

How to Order

Follow the Steps Below:

1. Select the number of characters you would like on your print from the dropdown column on the left, & on the right column, select whether you would like a shipped (printed) or printable (emailed) version. The cost reflected will be based on your choices.

Example: You would like a portrait made with 2 characters, sent by email to print yourself (printable), 11x14" size:

1. Select 2 in the first column
2. In the 2nd column, choose Printable 11x14"

2. Be sure to upload your reference photo(s).

* For digital orders: if you would prefer another size not listed, please let me know and I will send you a file in that size!

The Cost:

Each character is $79.95CAD - the base cost.
Your total will be a combination of your base + delivery (printable vs shipped).

Character & Process Explanation

Pricing for characters is based on labour (base).

My Process:

My process includes creating a detailed pencil illustration based on your photograph with my whimsical interpretation, followed by the initial layers of paint. I then add additional layers to create volume, depth, and shading. I then scan my work, allowing me to carefully edit out any accidental splotches etc in post-production, and then finally, I create a high-resolution file to either send to you digitally, or to create an archival fine art print that will last a lifetime and not fade.

This process can take anywhere from 1-4 weeks, depending on the season, and the amount of open orders at the given time.

• One Character = 1 Adult/Child/Pet ($79.95CAD - base cost)

• Two Characters = 2 of any of the above in any combination ($159.95 - base)

• As the number of characters increases past 3, the prices show a slight discount.

printable vs Shipped

1. Printable means your portrait will be sent to you via email, in a high-resolution JPG file that you can save to your computer, and upload to your local print shop - no waiting or additional costs for shipping, and printing yourself is very affordable. I have created an in-depth Printing Guide to make this easy and straightforward!

2. Shipped means you receive your print on the finest archival matte paper, made with archival inks, resulting in a museum-quality art print that will not fade and last a lifetime. All paintings are made into archival prints to ensure the highest quality & longevity, and to allow for an array of print size options.

1. Select the No. of characters,

delivery & size from the dropdown below:

• For example: Select  2 / Shipped 11X14"  for 2 characters to be shipped on 11x14" paper.

Fine Art Prints - or physically shipped prints - are perfect for those customers who love receiving packages in the mail, & who prefer to have their art ready to hang in a frame of their choosing.

All of my fine art prints are made with museum-grade fine art matte paper & with archival inks. This means that they will not fade, last a lifetime, and have a luxurious finish with no glare.

Simply choose the size you would like in inches, and add to your cart! If you would like a print shipped in a different size that is not listed, please contact me - I can often request special sizes through my local printing partner! 

Please note that frames are not included, however I do have amazing recommendations for you here!

Prints are packaged with care, & shipped 1-5 days post-purchase with tracking; delivery times will vary upon location.

I previously printed from my studio, but now that I am shipping internationally and have included larger sizes, I work closely with a fine art company.

Currently I ship from within Canada, the USA, and the UK to allow for faster shipping times, and to lower duty/customs fees should they apply.
