In an age that seems to discourage the belief that things last, portraiture stands out as one of the ways for future generations to know what and who was important. Commissioning a portait serves to honor those who are loved and respected, and to preserve their place in history. Humans desire to be shown, not only told, about those who have shaped our lives. We want to see their faces, what they wore, see their hands and surroundings and through this get to know them better. Artistic portraits preserve the memory of those who are important to us in a unique way that speaks to who an individual or family truly is.
