Bring Your Travel Stories Home
The places we travel to, that move us most, are the ones that remain with us long after we arrive back home. Whether I am painting from my own travel photographs or those of a patron, it is that special connection between person and place that I aim to celebrate with my art.
I am excited to announce that my studio is now open to take on commissions. In order to assure you a high quality work of art, I work on a limited number of paintings at once, so be sure to get in touch as early as possible if you would like an early booking. Current pricing begins at $1200 and varies depending on size and complexity:
I use only superior quality artist's materials for my watercolors and you will also receive a beautiful signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity with your painting, that states its originality and provenance.
The process of commissioning a painting is quite simple and you don't need a perfect photograph for me to work from. Early on you will be shown a small preliminary watercolor, for your approval, before I begin the finished piece. This will give you a pretty good idea of what the final watercolor will look like, so you can be assured that it will be to your liking.
I would love to share what a recent client had to say about her experience hiring me to paint a watercolor of Florence, to gift her parents for the holidays:
On why she chose to commission a Watercolor from me:
"My parents have loved their international travel experiences. They are getting older and not able to travel much anymore. I wanted to ..bring [their happy trip memory] alive for them..."
On the process:
"It was easy. Sophia let me know exactly what I needed to provide her to get started. Then she gave me updates to show the progress of the commission. It was a great experience for me since I have never seen a commission come to life."
On seeing the finished Watercolor:
"I had tears! My parents have both had health issues in the last year, and to see something so beautiful created just for them was a special experience for me. Plus Sophia has an artist's talent with a lovely heart to match. She took the time to understand the story behind the picture and capture the essence of the memory."
