Turn your precious old family photos into beautiful oil paintings.

  • You can choose the exact dimensions of your portrait as all our canvases are made-to-measure.

  • You can even tell your artist to omit certain objects or background details in the photo if you do not want them painted into your portrait.

  • If you want to commission a large family portrait, we can work from several photographs. We specialise in working from old black & white and colour photos and transforming them into beautiful period appropriate oil paintings.                                                                       
  • Our Oil Portraits take between 4-6 weeks to complete & dry, before being safely delivered to you.
