I’m in the business of making people cry.  

Tears of joy, that is, when they see the finished portrait of their child.


It’s a moment my collectors have anticipated for months. They’ve seen the study, but it never does justice to the finished piece. There’s just something about standing in front of a painting of your child that brings out an overflow of emotions. Moms tell me it’s an experience they’ll never forget.


Each portrait is a testament of love between a mother and a child. Each portrait honors that love and celebrates the relationship. I'm honored to tell one such a story – the story of Tread and Hart.
