Before the invention of photography, the only way to immortalize a picture of oneself at a chosen time in their life was to commission a portrait. Hiring an artist to paint your portrait entailed an expensive process involving the subject having to sit for an extended period of time. Thus, only the elite, the very wealthy, could afford to have portraits of themselves painted. It was considered an activity of high social standing, one which usually only the aristocrats and nobility had time and money to engage themselves in.
Today, we are offering the chance for you to commission your very own custom painting or portrait. Yes, you too can be an aristocrat- but without all the hassle and extra expense! No need to sit for hours at a time in a stifling room, without moving an inch from your chosen position. Our only requirement is that you choose a picture you love. Simply send us an email with the photo you desire, and our expert painters will convert it to an exquisite, hand-crafted painting at a fraction of what it would cost to sit for one.
Other companies may offer an option of turning digital photos into art. A lot of these, however, are actually machine made prints with clever photographic manipulations that appear to be photo-realistic. But these cannot be compared to our stunning, handmade paintings which will contribute to the ambience of your home in a way that no print would be able to match. A spectacular portrait, perhaps created from a picture taken on your wedding day, or maybe from a photo of your child’s first birthday, will always be on the wall as an eternal commemoration of that happy day. Plus, it will give the room an authentic, noble feel that cannot be replicated with anything else. Commissioning one of our painters to create this experience for you will be a choice you will never regret.
