We pour our heart and soul into creating Signature Painted Portraits.

Create a one of a kind work of art with digital watercolor strokes or painted by hand with oils to create a depth to any portrait making it a true masterpiece for your home.

We bring our years of developing film portraits in the darkroom to studying with the great artists from all over the world into each of our sessions to create your own priceless piece of portrait art.

Each piece is meticulously crafted by hand using heat bonded archival-pigmented inks that provide an expected print life of over 100 years. Our portrait artists then use brush strokes to create a stunning Painter Portrait. Lastly, a protective coat is applied to provide life-long protection. The result is a finish that rivals oil paintings and gives a realism of a photo that feels as if it was hand painted. Each portrait is then hand signed and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. The process to produce such quality by hand takes 8-10 weeks. We also offer a variety of portrait art frames to finish your one of a kind work of art.

A painted portrait is truly a beautiful masterpiece that not only will grow in value over time, but will instantly be a priceless work of art in your home. Call us today at (402) 934-7468.


A family portrait is perhaps the most important portrait of your life. We will capture the connection, and genuine expressions that will forever remind you of life’s most cherished moments


Expression is all the difference between a picture and a portrait. A soft, quiet look reveals the child’s charm and unique look that is just hers or his. Your child’s portrait will be your most prized possession.


Graduation is an accomplishment that deserves to be celebrated. A C41 portrait is a perfect reminder that they will always be with you and close to your heart as they head off to college or on life’s journey.
