Your chcild with a natual smile is always good

Catpuring the joy of your family 

Pencil drawing of the kids or grandkids at about the same age just makes you smile


The portraits I paint are not the usual formal ones,  I like to have the family having fun and enjoying life not all smiling at a photographer.   I do make everyone look good a little thinner, younger and generally just better but still looking like themselves. I can change the balckground that is in the photo to another location if you want.  I will use your photo or I will come to you and take the photographs,  in that case I do chargre for my airfare, car and hotel.  Please call with any questions 808-325-6106

Watercolor prices are 16X20 ...... $4000.


These prices include 5 people each additional person is $150.   Also included is a flash drive that includes all the photos I take and a jpeg for you to use if you wish to make cards.  I can also make full size signed numbered limited edition giclees for family members and they make gifts.  See examples of the portraits in the Portrait section.
