Painted Life Portraits

Experience working with an artist to creatively express your story in a custom original. When you work with DGB to create a Life Portrait you are an active participant.

This is about YOUR memories, stories, and vision. It can be a therapeutic and reaffirming process, looking through photos and collections, seeking the images that best hold your story. 

  • places you love.

  • items that signify a deeper story (for example: show me a paper clip and I smile, thinking of my mother and her crazy paperclip collections all over the house).

  • people, pets, colors, textures - what best expresses who you are?

When you are working with your partner or spouse it can be a journey together, rediscovering your values, opening up meaningful conversations.

Once we have decided on which images to use and have a rough design, we here at DGB can get started on the painting. This will usually take around 2 weeks, and we'll keep you updated.


You'll probably find yourself paying more attention to the things you love - just because you're looking. Great!


We're happy to tweak a couple of times and add something if you have one of those "Oh hang on a minute... we definitely need... (x)!! " moments.


​At the end of this process you can enjoy the luscious texture and serendipitous brush strokes of an original artwork, as well as having access to prints to share with friends and family.


We'll load up whatever fine art print sizes you'd like and send you a link so that you can purchase additional prints whenever you want.


"... she painted a family 'life' portrait for me to give Kenn for Christmas.  He was so surprised.  She not only painted us, but included representations of all the things that make us who we are…our children, flying dachshunds, my art, Kenn’s Mr. Fix It personality, water, secret paths, our home, music, and our faith. I do found object art, and Paula added screws, nails and cogs to make the tree, along with other sculptural effects throughout the painting."
