Turning a Classic Portrait into a One-of-a-Kind Piece of Art

Classic Portrait Photography Doesn’t Mean Boring!

Creative Textures & Overlays add Depth and Dimensions – Originating a stunning, One-of-a-Kind Piece of Art.


Sometimes I will enhance a Classic Portrait to create something unique.  Not every portrait warrants this kind of design finish, but the ones that do, really stand out and shine.

I begin with beautiful lighting to give shape to a person, a great composition and even posing.  Yes, posing is an art form in and of itself.

In the retouching process, I begin my creative brainstorm.   I never know where the image will take me and no two portraits will ever be designed the same way.

Textures, elements, color tones, among other techniques are used in the design.  I never know how I’m gonna start, where the design will go or even how it will finish, until it just feels right.  (Yes, an artist’s mind at work.)

Check out the Before and After Portraits below.  It’s a great showcase of a beautiful Classic Portrait and how I transformed it into something unique – a One-of-a-Kind Piece of Art.


I love turning a Classic Portrait into a One-of-a-Kind Piece of Art Work.

Before & After


This particular Portrait is printed on one of our Fine Art Canvas Wraps.  Another option would be to printed on one of our Fine Art Hamahuale  Papers – (Matted & Framed, of course).

Personalizing Your Fine Art Canvas

The more I can help personalize a portrait, I feel, the more special it becomes.

With this particular Portrait, a song lyric was added to the sides of the Fine Art Canvas Wrap – words of wisdom from a Father to his Son.

There’s many options you can use as well.  For instance quotes, a personal message, a poem, and I even had a couple add all the nick names of their cutie pie.


Portrait : Edge of Canvas designed

Adding words of wisdom to the edge of your Fine Art Canvas Wraps will personalize your portrait even more.
