Commissioning A Portrait

Having a portrait painted of yourself or a love one is a very important undertaking for both artist and client.  A portrait will last for many generations, long after the family photos have faded.  Regardless of the simplicity or complexity of the composition, Wanda Paulette always strives to create an heirloom quality masterpiece of the highest standard.

A portrait is a collaboration between artist and patron.  The first step is to initiate a dialogue and consider the scope of the portrait and determine the price.  Wanda will do her best to accommodate both the client’s budget and individual vision.
