Make the place you love iconic. 

If you want a special way to honor a family home, the building you live in, your business, your headquarters, you've come to the right place. I've drawn hundreds of homes and buildings for the people who love them.

Every home has a personality, and I strive to capture it in my work. I can include the personal touches that make your home yours: the tree, the curtains, the family pet. Let me help you capture the memory of your place.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?
Feel free to contact me first if you want to talk through your project (I'd love to hear about your home or building!), or you can go ahead and purchase your home portrait here.

Do you work from photos?
Yes, most of the time. Once you purchase your home portrait, you'll email me photos of the home or building and any details you want captured. Smartphone photos typically work just fine.

How long does it take?
Typical turnaround is 4 weeks. We can sometimes accommodate shorter deadlines, within reason :) 

Can you do a portrait of a home that's outside of Chicago, no longer standing, etc?
Absolutely, as long as you have photos.

Can I have a digital file so that I can make prints for personal keepsakes?
Yes. I can give you high-resolution digital images in addition to the signed original.

Do you do commercial/corporate work?
I do, and would love to hear about your project. Get in touch and let's talk about the details.
