Commission an artwork by Suzanne

Home PortraitMy specialty is architectural home portraiture. I would be delighted to work with you to create a fine art keepsake of your home or special architectural building. An original painting makes a wonderful gift that will be cherished for generations to come.

If you have another subject in mind, please contact me. I am happy to discuss your ideas and can create work based on photographs of people, places, pets and more. 

Creating Commissioned Works 

I generally work from photographs of the home or building to be painted. If your home or building is located in Chicago, custom photography is included at no additional charge. If your project is located outside of Chicago, you can email me your own photographs or contact me about arranging a location shoot (additional fees may be incurred).

If you are emailing photos: I generally need multiple photos of the subject matter to ensure an accurate representation of the building. I am happy to include or exclude items from various photograph to reflect a change in season, landscaping details, or other important elements. Digital images of artwork will be submitted as I work for your review.

View the Creative Process page to see how a painting is created from photographs.

Available Sizes and Media

Original watercolor paintings range in size from 10 x 14 inches to 22 x 30 inches, unframed. If you are interested in a different media, pen and ink or a pencil sketch for example, please contact me.
