"Thumbprint portraits use your own thumbprint to create a large (three feet high!), modern, colorful work of art that will be absolutely YOU. I will use own thumbprint and recreate its unique patterns using snippets of imagery, text and color from your favorite things (you’ll provide a list and I’ll pore through the library, google image search, pinterest, etc. to gather pictures). Your favorites could include much-loved books, music, films, poetry, quotes, places traveled and lived, recipes and much more. The result is a truly one-of-a-kind portrait that captures your personality and passions. It makes a wonderful gift for yourself or a loved one.

The thumbprint portrait comes ready for framing and can be framed in a standard 30"x40" frame if you frame it with only a back mat and no over-mat, so that you needn't invest in custom framing!

As this piece is completely personalized and made to order, please allow a bit of time for completion - generally 2-3 weeks from the time I receive from you the list of favorite things to be incorporated into the portrait. If you need it more quickly than that, let me know and we can probably work that out!

The commission can also be purchased as a gift - if you would like to give it as a gift, and you would like the portrait's subject to be able to be involved in the collaborative process, please make a note and I can send you a beautiful little wood and lacquer box with the inkpad and other needed materials, along with a gift card and information and images about the thumbprint portraits.

Finally, many people do thumbprint portraits for multiple members of their family - if you're interested in doing such a thing, message me in advance so that I can create a custom discounted listing for multiple thumbprints....Discounts also available to those who want to do a book-covers only portrait in which you simply give me a list of 12-20 of your favorite books!

Let’s collaborate!"
