Forever Bouquet Paper flowers are cut and designed by referencing a photo provided by the client. Each petal, every leaf and stem is cut by hand without the use of dyes. All papers and mat board are acid free and it is strongly advised to frame the artwork using UV protective glass to preserve the color for many, many years. Museum glass allows for exceptionally high definition without glare or reflection. The most common design size will fit an 11" X 14" frame, but any size can be accommodated. Forever Bouquets make a great wedding or anniversary gift for the bride and groom, or perhaps as a gift for an avid gardener, to someone who just loves flowers. Follow me on Instagram @whitneysalie
Portraits are created using acrylic paint with glazing to achieve transparency and color depth. Whitney works from photographs taken over a couple of meetings while getting to know her subject. From the several photographs taken, she will then suggest a suitable pose and the client will make the final selection.
Portrait pricing varies greatly depending on size and background. This young ballerina was photographed at a dance studio with vinyl flooring and mirrors. Whitney creatively painted this romantic setting of hardwood floors, practice bar, and aged plaster wall to set the stage for this beautiful dancer.
