Golden Retriever colored pencil portrait

If you are considering having a cherished portrait painted, whether it is a pet, a person, your home, or even a favorite landscape, I can help you with that! I have painted many personal portraits over the years and truly love the process. It makes me happy to think that someone is going to treasure the image of a loved one and have it passed down through future generations.

The first place to start this process will be to contact me. We will discuss what medium you may want your portrait painted in, such as whether you would like oil paints, pastels (chalks), pen & ink, pencil, charcoal or colored pencil. There are many options to choose from and I am able to do this. We will also discuss the size of the portrait. I usually work from photographs when painting portraits (I never trace from a photo, I feel this is cheating the client). When possible, I have personally visited and photographed a subject before I begin the process. It helps so much to get to know who or what you are painting before you begin!

If you are considering the portrait as a gift, please contact me well in advance of the date you need the painting so that I have plenty of time to complete the process. Either way, you can call or text me at 513-405-1540 or simply contact me via email here, I will also send you a price list:  Contact Jody!

Below are a few examples of personal portraits I have painted over the years. I also guarantee your satisfaction as we work together through the process so that we both will be happy with the finished portrait. Thank you for taking the time to look and consider having a personal portrait commissioned by Jody!
