Magical Portrait Commissions
Magical Portraits of Children
"Puppy Elf" Commissioned Portrait "Butterfly Fairy" Commissioned Portrait
My portraits of young children as magical beings are a celebration of a child's ability to connect effortlessly to the realm of magic. The portraits are small, approximately 8" x 6", drawn in graphite pencil. I work from photographs, changing the clothing to reflect each child's magical persona. Wings are added to match each portrait's special aura. Girls will receive butterfly wings, while the boys get dragonfly-ish wings. The portraits focus in mostly on the face, with the wings cropped.

How To Choose the Right Photo for a Magical Portrait
Yes! You have decided to commission a Magical Portrait of your very own little magical being.
Any age is great. I have drawn babies, toddlers, and little children. All you need to do is choose
the perfect photo to send. Easy! But yikes, there are so many to select from!
Let me give you some hints for finding just the right photo:
1. Look for a photo where the child is facing the camera,
with an expression of delight or mischief on their face.
2. Find a photo that draws you in and makes you smile.
3. Photo must be large enough to see details, very clear, and high quality.
The portrait can only be as good as the photograph.
4. Pick a Photo that truly captures the child’s personality.
5. Don’t worry about clothing. That will be changed in the portrait.
6. Portaits are drawn in B & W, so don’t worry about colors.
Little children are all magical, but your own is truly special! Usually there are one or two photographs that really jump out at you, or that make you happy. That is the kind of photo that makes a great portrait!
