I accept commission work on a first come first serve basis and charge according to complexity and size. All paintings are created from photographic reference that should be supplied in high resolution. The overall goal is of course to capture each person - their expression, likeness and most import, personality.

Commissions upon request email: kelly@kellyxart.com

Here are some recently completed paintings and testimonials from some satisfied customers....

If anyone is considering commissioning a piece through Kelly, don't hesitate to to do so! Kelly recently painted a portrait of our daughter as a surprise anniversary gift for my husband, Jim. When we opened the box last night, we were amazed at how well she had captured Ehris. Additionally, the painting arrived beautif...ully packaged and made the trip from California to Connecticut in perfect condition. This is a gift we will treasure forever!

Here's Eris, the painting and her father :)

Kelly X is an absolutely marvelous artist. I had a photograph of my son, Jaryd, that I loved. I discussed commissioning a piece from her and then e-mailed the picture (mind you)... She did an absolutely fabulous job catching not only the essence of the photo, but the personality of my son. I was fortunate enough to watch this piece being done, bit by bit, via Facebook, and when it arrived (safely and securely!!) I was amazed at the beautiful quality of her work....I would HIGHLY recommend her if you're thinking of that special portrait you would like to have done and proudly display of your loved one(s)...!

Kelly, you captured Karl and me perfectly! You opened my eyes to how something that I thought would be so simple has so much depth and detail! I'm so happy we stayed with the black & white too ! It makes it so timeless. I consider it my most precious piece of art now - 

love it Kelly, just love it !!!

I would also like to add how impressed I was with how well it was packaged for delivery !

This past Christmas I was at a loss wondering what to get my parents...As Kelly was posting beautiful pictures she was working on, I immediately knew this was the perfect gift for them! This was a very fun piece, as they were dressed like Bonnie and Clyde, and the details in the picture were, I assumed, quite challenging; yet she pulled it off perfectly and my parents were thoroughly appreciative and loved her work!! Being that it was close to Christmas, she kindly shipped it directly to them and it now hangs in their home above the fireplace, where I'm told all their friends marvel at it....Another great job, Kelly! Thank you, again!!!
