Lizzie captured our friend's likeness and spirit in the most beautiful way. What a perfect gift for those who everything but a custom portrait/avatar! Lizzie, you're gifted and a gift. Rapid turnaround (even during the holidays!) and beautiful!

I received a beautiful portrait with a very quick turnaround time! All the details I requested were included and exceeded my expectations. It looks just like me too! So happy with this commission and I’m very excited to add this wonderful piece to my personal art collection. Would absolutely commission another piece from this artist again.
