Want to foster sustainable innovation and community engagement?

Interested in buying or commissioning a painting or illustration?

Portraits are a long-lasting love... How many school hours spent sketching my friends or teachers?  When I draw a portrait or a caricature, a feeling of deep empathy for my model grows.

I work from picture of live. Contact me if you want a portrait of a loved one, or to hire me as a live portraitist for an event, a party or a wedding. 

Interested in a painting? 

If you like a piece you saw on this website,

if you want a portrait of your loved ones,

if you want a custom painting for your space, 

don't hesitate to reach out. We will think together how to get you the artwork that will make you happy every time you look at it. 

 

I will also give you information about pricing. I believe that art should be accessible to everyone. So if you really love a painting or feel like a portrait would be very special for you or someone you care about, let's discuss and we will make it work. 

"There are already two paintings of Elise in my house. They are in a position where they are the first thing I see in the morning, it gives me great joy!"

You have this empty wall looking at you or you want to change the mood of your space?

You like the style of my paintings but you cannot find on this website the perfect one for you?

I am open to commissions: you chose the subject, the mood, the colours, the style and the size for your painting. Or you let me decide, it is up to you. I will put my heart in creating a piece that will bring beauty and happiness into your space.

 

 

"Each of Elise's paintings tells a unique story..."

Commission a portrait

A portrait is a piece of eternal love. It can be a painting of children, parents, friends, pets, for you or as a present to someone you care about. 

I work from pictures and I paint in my studio. You can provide the picture or I will come to you and will take it myself. You chose the style, the mood and the colours of the painting.

"The portrait captures something about me that I hadn''t seen yet.

It made me look at myself in a different light."

I can provide framing options for your artwork, including American box, metal, wood, or vintage frames - with costs laid out upfront for transparency.

5. Delivery

Whether you're local or far away, your artwork will get to you safely. Pick up from the studio or opt for delivery – we'll discuss all associated costs upfront.

6. Ongoing Communication

Questions? Ideas? I'm all ears! Reach out anytime, and I'll be here to assist you every step of the way.

Elise, we received the portraits in good order, and we LOVE them! Thank you very much, we are very please with the results.
