CUSTOM COMMISSIONED PORTRAITS

Enjoy the experience of having a custom painted POP~ART portrait by artist Michelle Vella. 

Custom commissions can be portraits of yourself, family, pets, or even your favourite POP culture icons. My unique BIG EYES style is best portrayed with a single portrait on a square canvas, but more than one portrait on a single and even rectangular canvas works too. You can also be portrayed in a landscape setting at your lake house or favourite place, and big eyes are optional. 

I paint with professional acrylic paint on gallery canvas, sizes starting at 20"x 20" and I paint from photos. Click the button below to set up a telephone meeting to discuss your vision. See examples below.
