Portrait Commissions

Portraits make lasting, one-of-a-kind gifts. Commissioning a portrait is easy.

Commissioning a portrait painting is a significant undertaking. A portrait will last for generations, years after the family photos have long since faded. Regardless of the degree of complexity of the painting you commission, Zahra Artist always strives to create an heirloom quality portrait masterpiece of the highest standards.

Since a portrait painting is a collaboration between patron and artist, the first step is to establish a dialogue and determine the scope of the painting you desire. Zahra Artist will do her very best to accommodate both your vision and your budget. When you commission Zahra Artist to paint your portrait you are dealing directly with the artist. Please contact Zahra Artist directly to discuss the portrait you envision.
