AboutA Home Portrait is a beautiful gift for yourself, your family, or for anyone special to you.
Susan Stillman, an award winning and widely published artist, has been creating Home Portraits since 1989, providing creative interpretations that capture the unique personality of each home. Her acrylic paintings on canvas are alive with sunlight and shadow, revealing the individuality of architectural and landscape elements.
Ms. Stillman works closely with each client to create a work that incorporates their ideas and includes the home’s most important elements. “I have to say that the responses I get when I deliver a Home Portrait are wonderfully gratifying. The process is a very special adventure I share with each client. We are recording an important part of their lives to share with their family and friends, now and for the future.”
