A painting created to capture the essence of your loved one or a house portrait to memorialize the place where countless memories were made will be a family heirloom that will be cherished and passed down through the generations. Time is fleeting and whether its having your child's likeness captured at a certain age, or a portrait of a family member who has already passed on, Chelsea's unique process of combining realistic drawings with the textured, luminous encaustic paint imbues each piece with a totally one-of-a-kind and deeply meaningful feeling. She works from photographs and the paintings are priced based on size.
A 50% deposit is required before the work is started and the remaining balance is due before the painting is shipped. Photos and updates of the painting in progress are included to enable the client to get a feel for the piece and offer input.
