Custom Original Art

A shot from one of Carrie Brummer's Anonymous Woman Series
In this photo I'm stitching into the collar of this portrait in progress.

There's nothing quite like hanging personalized, original art in your home. I'm here to help you create a lasting memory and unique family heirloom for your home.

I will create an original artwork inspired from photographs I take of you or your loved one(s). If you wish me to work from your own photographs, I must approve the photos before we agree to the project.

I paint on stretched canvas with acrylic paints, and incorporate gold leaf and embroidery floss like my Anonymous Woman series upon request.

Let's Get Started

First, if you wish me to work from your own photos, email the images to for approval.

Once your images are approved, a 50% percent deposit is requested to begin your original artwork.

The remaining balance is due when the artwork is complete.

Because of the unique nature and style of my work, I will offer a preview sketch with one opportunity for feedback before I start painting the work.

Prefer a payment plan? Let's talk about it.

How Long Will It Take To Finish?

Timing for the work depends on how much embroidery and gold leaf, as well as the size of the work. Expect a month, but I will be in regular communication with you to keep you up to date with the work in progress.

What About Shipping?

You can read about my shipping policies and prices here.

Carrie is both artist and educator at Artist Strong.

Collector Experience

I wanted a special gift for my wife to celebrate Christmas and our son's first real Christmas.

Carrie took one of my favorite photos and turned into a very detailed and sentimental piece.

It's richer in life and deeper than a photo. It was the perfect gift and a lifelong moment in time.
