Some of you folks have asked to see photos of the people that you see here as Caricatures. This is usually difficult because I receive many photos in many forms of dress & expression from which I create the design that my client has requested. However, here I have taken a favorite photo of my dear Husband ...& added stacks of books & an item or 2 to show a few of his many & varied interests!
This should show you all another way of creating a design sure to become a treasured family heirloom.
How To Order

- I will then confirm your choices with revisions if any of your suggestions would prove problematic and provide price and approx. ship date.

- Your place is the Request and the length of your "wait time" will vary widely depending on on the time of year, my Fine Art Show schedule, and other life factors. Remember, I work alone ~ no employees or minions! All is created by my hand, so patience is an essential ingredient to our Magical Collaborative Process.
