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: 

The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Florence

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."
