Personal Customer Service

Since March 2010, we have been creating more than 300 personalized portraits for our satisfied customers coming from every part of the world.

Our Dutch-managed painting atelier works with professional art school-graduated, dedicated and experienced portrait artists only, using the highest quality of art materials available.

One of our passionate Chiang Mai portrait artists in action

Commissioning affordable and highly artistic black and white drawings, as well as colored portraits through our website is easy. We not make use of a complicated and impersonal online order system.

On the contrary! Sending a high quality photo of your unforgettable moment to our e-mail address is all it takes.

You can also send us several of your most precious pictures. This allows us selecting the most ideal picture(s) in order to create fine custom portrait art.

You don't have to be a portrait art specialist recognizing the artistic brilliance of the Einstein charcoal pencil drawing above. Just observe the fantastic facial details. Have your most memorable photo, turned by our professional charcoal pencil portraitist, into a black and white drawing of similar artistic quality! 

Once you’ve agreed on the selected photograph, size of the artwork and portrait type, we’ll send you PayPal money request making paying online easy and 100% safe.

As soon as we’ve received payment via PayPal, a confirmation e-mail will be send to you. Next one of our experienced and professional portrait artists will start creating your lifelike portrait.

Our customers always have the option to review their commissioned charcoal pencil sketch or oil color portrait before their artwork will be shipped. Only when fully satisfied with the delivered artistic quality, the work will be mailed to your address.
 
Customers can always ask me for an update on the creation's progress or for more information, just   e-mail  ! We'll reply within 24 hours. 
 
 
Eyes can be colored at a small 10% additional fee

The job is just unbelievable, huge congratulations to the artist".
