“You are very talented and exceeded my expectations with this portrait and you have been thorough and professional throughout the entire process. So you can expect to hear from me again!”

Chelsea R. Henrietta NY


“The drawing just arrived today and it is phenomenal! I’m just amazed and so happy with it. It’s just what I asked for and I don’t know if I can wait until his birthday to give it to my husband. Thank you for everything!”

Kieran M., Cleveland Ohio


“Lisa, it is absolutely, 100%, totally, AWESOMELY PERFECT!! Love it, love it, love it. It just pops! Exactly what I wanted and it really shows both cats for who they are (believe it or not). I can see their personalities in their eyes.”

Helen Wolf, Honeoye Falls NY


“I really can’t recommend this artist enough. Very very friendly and easy to communicate with. Absolutely gorgeous drawing, and such a wonderful and accurate likeness of the animals too.”

Paul P., Rhode Island


“I just wanted to let you know my husband and daughter both loved the portrait of our dog Zeus. We all agree the likeness to him is amazing and the detail to his portrait is great. Zeus’ portrait was our favorite gift and we will get many years of enjoyment from it and we will always think of him when we look at it. Your work is perfection.”

Linda R., Honeoye Falls NY


“I was referred to Lisa from a friend who also had drawings completed. From our first to last email, she was so pleasant to work with (and there were 40 emails!) She helped me decide important elements I wanted to showcase in the drawings and really made their personalities shine. I had Lisa draw my sister’s cats for a unique 30th birthday gift and I am so excited to give it to her!”

Ellen S., Rochester NY


” From the initial email explaining what  I had in mind as far as drawing my cats to the final delivery of the drawings, the entire process was smooth and positive! Lisa was easy to work with and understood exactly what I was looking for. The drawings accurately captured each cats personality and each looks amazing framed and on my wall! Lisa is incredibly talented and I would highly recommend her.”

Stephanie R., Rochester NY


I wanted to surprise my parents with a Christmas present that would be meaningful to them. I found a picture of the three of us and commissioned Lisa to create a color sketch from it. My parents and I couldn’t be happier with the result, and the artwork now hangs in their front hallway.”

Kevin Laley, Fairport NY


Lisa has done four portraits for my family, three of children and one wedding portrait. All of them have come out beautiful! Lisa has a way of pulling the personality and emotion out of a photograph and infusing it into the portrait as she draws. Thank you Lisa!”

Kerri DeSimone, Churchville NY


Hi my name is Dominick and I just wanted to give some praise to Lisa’s WONDERFUL work. My Girlfriend and I have been together for about 3 years now and I was getting ready to “pop the question.” It was going to be on Christmas Eve; her favorite day of the year. I know it’s a little cliché but it’s what makes her happy that counts. I was thinking about what else I could do besides dropping on my knee and asking. And I remembered Amber, my now fiancé always talking about how much she loved a certain picture of us. So I wanted to take that picture and almost bring it to life and relive the moment with her. I brought it to Lisa and asked what she could do. As you can see her ability to create such an amazing picture is phenomenal! I put it in a gift bag and hid it under the tree and when she pulled it out and started getting teary eyed, I dropped on bended knee and asked her to marry me. Lisa’s incredible work will always be a part of one of our happiest moments!”

Dominick Sidari, Albany NY


“I recently had Lisa create a pencil drawing from a photograph of my daughter’s puppy for her birthday. The end result was stunning and my daughter was thrilled, it really was the perfect gift. Lisa provided guidance and rough sketches throughout the creative process, so I could be sure that I was getting what I wanted. The drawing was delivered very professionally and with a certificate of authenticity, which I thought was a nice touch. I’ll would encourage anybody looking for a unique, handcrafted portrait to engage Lisa. She’s extremely talented.”

Eric Ehrhardt, Rochester NY

  1. I wanted to surprise my boyfriend with a drawing of his father who passed away while he was home on his R&R leave from the military. His dad meant the world to him and I wanted to do something nice for him. I had tried looking for an artist in the Rochester area who had good drawings and at a reasonable price. I found Lisa and I couldn’t be more happy that I did! I contacted her with what I wanted and she got back to me right away, and just days later she drew up a rough sketch of the portrait. I was so happy and excited that I found someone with such talent to do this for me. If you are looking for someone who does great quality work, will meet your needs and is extremely friendly, I definitely recommend Lisa. I am very happy I found her and she did this for me.

  2. I am blown away by the drawing Lisa did for me. It’s still a birthday surprise so I can’t talk too much about it, but Lisa is extremely talented. She was very easy to work with and went above and beyond my expectations. I am referring her to everyone I know.
