Art Created from Your Photos

House Portraits are custom drawings or paintings of your house. Order yours online by contacting Sonja. Working with a house drawing artist is the most popular way to honor a family home. A house drawing or house painting will inspire childhood memories, preserve a grandparent's home place, and create a new family tradition.  Many art buyers give these custom house drawings as a birthday, Christmas and anniversary present.  Is there a more beautiful way to treasure your special home? 

"I'm an artist who works from photographs to create house portraits. This gives you creative options to display your home during any season or from a time way back when. I specialize in historical architecture and capturing the small details that make your home unique. I'm looking forward to creating a house portrait for you!" ~ Sonja
