"This is more than just a portrait, it's a family heirloom" - says California-based artist Lily Kalinsky.
An artist and graphic designer since 2004, Lily was born in Europe and grew up surrounded by museums. The Hermitage in St. Petersburg, the Old Master’s Picture Gallery in Dresden – these collections inspired her to focus on portraiture in the old masters style, and bring it into our fast-paced, modern world.
“It’s a way to pay tribute to the past - and to become part of it”
Now, she paints to create new family heirlooms, traditions, and heritage: portraits that will last from generation to generation.Lily has painted over 500 portraits that now hang in homes around the world. Living in Southern California, she has been featured on KTLA5 Morning News and painted private portraits for numerous, celebrated personalities, including Sophie Turner, the Jonas Brothers, Priyanka Chopra, Maisie Williams, and many others.

WHY A PORTRAIT?
Bringing the old masters painting style into the modern world, physical portraits are a personalized form of art, completely unique to you and your family. They evoke emotions and memories every time you look upon them hanging from the wall. They remind us of the people who have defined us, inspired us, and loved us.
"As a digital artist inspired by the old masters painting style, my work fuses the modern with the traditional to produce unique family heirlooms that will last the test of time.
Together, you and I can create a portrait that will last from generation to generation"
HANG IT ON THE WALL AND ENJOY!
"This is one of my favorite purchases I've ever made! As soon as anyone walks into our house they make a comment about it. The detail in the painting is amazing, and the frame is a perfect fit for the picture. Lily was in contact with me every step of the way and was so lovely. She even sent a picture of it before it shipped to make sure I was happy. I can't wait to order another painting for our home!"
"Lily is wonderfully talented artist. The concept of her work, personalized Renaissance paintings, is not only fresh but visionary. I purchased this piece for a wedding anniversary because it is unique and rich with depth and sophistication. Anyone can paint from a photograph, but Lily takes this to a polished level with artistic sensitivity and a tangible passion in her work. Obviously, I encourage anyone looking for a one-of-a-kind item or gift to seriously consider Lily's work. These are truly masterpieces in both skill and creativity"

"My sister happened upon this shop and when she shared it with me, I was thrilled! I knew this was THE perfect gift for my husband for our 20th anniversary. Lily was fabulous to work with and what an artist! Our piece is utterly spectacular!!! My husband loved it!!!!!! He replaced our painting on the mantel with it! He also wants to do individual ones of us in the future. I can't sing Lily's praises high enough! This is truly a magnificent piece that we will cherish always. I just giggle with glee every time I look at it! Perfection!"
