HOW IT WORKS
All Family Traditions Start Somewhere. Yours Starts Here.
Send clear, sharp photos of the person to be painted
Texturing and finish
Framed & Delivered
Pick reference painting(s) for inspiration.
The reference gives me an idea of the period/outfit you want and can be completely changed to fit your desires.
Send clear, sharp photos of the person to be painted.
Tip: pick photos where the subject isn’t smiling for a more authentic portrait look!
This original artwork from your photo is a combination of digital and traditional hand-painting. Each brush stroke is painted by hand using digital pen and tablet. No collaging, copy/pasting, or bad photoshop here: as a digital artist, I pride myself on painting from scratch, brushstroke by brushstroke.
Digital version approval.
You’ll receive a digital copy of the portrait for your approval: this is your chance to suggest any changes you want to make before printing and finishing touches.
Texturing and finish. Framing (optional)
After approving the digital version, portraits are printed, textured with brushstrokes by hand, and given a gloss finish for that classic portrait look ( 2 days drying time)
Beautiful high quality wooden frames available in walnut or golden wood.
How to choose the right photo for your portrait
HANG IT ON THE WALL AND ENJOY!
"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"

"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!"
"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!"
