""Have just received portraits that Emily did of my children and niece and nephew, all I can say is amazing and spectacular. She is very talented." - Anita, Kitchener

We received a beautiful piece of artwork by Emily of our new dog Buddy! She came to the home to visit him in person and then made a beautiful re-creation. We are so impressed with how she captured his energy and enthusiasm! Thanks Emily!!!" - Amanda, Waterloo

Deciding what to have created can be the hardest part! Select a photo that is high resolution, clear, and accurately shows everyones face.

Do you only offer portraits?


Althought I primarily do portraits, I also offer custom work for landscapes and abstract art pieces.




What kind of materials do you use for custom work?


For portraits I work with either graphite or watercolour, and for landscapes or abstracts I work with oil paints.




Do you work from a photo?


For portraits, yes! If you have a photo you have taken I am happy to use it as a reference, or if needed I can come and photograph you. For landscapes I can work from photos provided or take my own depending on the location. For abstracts I do not use photo references.




How long does it take to create a custom order?


This varies on the time of the year, during wedding season and Christmas things are much busier and can take up to 6-8 weeks. I will always keep you up to date on the progress of your artwork.




I want a custom order in time for the holidays - when is the best time to order?


The earlier the better, as November rolls around I am in full swing with holiday orders and am very busy. I will put a call out on my Instagram page when my holiday orders are open, and I will update as spots become filled and orders are closed.
