If you are interested in commissioning a custom painting or drawing, all I need is a high-quality digital image or print. I can also take a photograph of your subject if you prefer, for a small additional charge. If you're not located in San Diego, shipping can be arranged.
For commissions, pricing depends on the size of the piece, the materials, and the number of figures in the portrait. Pricing is listed below.
Please allow up to four weeks for an artwork's completion. However, if you're in need of a last-minute gift, a faster completion time can be arranged for an additional charge.
Please see my contact page for more info.
“When we received the finished picture, we were thrilled with Hilary's work and have proudly hung it in our home. It is a special treasure of our very special 'best friend'. We would recommend Hilary to anyone wanting a rendering of their pet. In fact we purchased a birthday gift for a special friend - a beautiful portrait of her cocker spaniel, and we can hardly wait until it's birthday time to see her joy receiving such a lovely gift.”

“Carol and I love Hilary's version of Rags. It hangs proudly next to my computer. She has captured his soul.”

“The painting is beautiful with so much detail (just amazing). Hermes gave me the painting this last mother's day and I will cherish it always. We hung it that same week but today it sits wrapped up in a box because we are getting ready to move and as soon as we are situated in our new place, my son's painting will be the first to be hung. Thank you again.”
Hilary took photos of our puppy with ease and painted a watercolor that clearly captured her spunky personality. The life in our puppy's eyes shines through the painting!
