My name is Melissa (a.k.a. Missy) and I am a wife to my darling hubby Jason and mother of two girls, Elizabeth and Kate. I am the portrait artist and founder of Missy's Portraits.
Missy's Portraits specializes in hand painted custom portraits of children, families, pets, houses and sports figures.
When I first became a mother and I began my maternity leave, I knew immediately that I did not want to go back to work full time. I wanted to be a full time mom AND try get back to my first love - painting. Elizabeth inspired me to specialize with portraits of children after I had painted a portrait of her when she was 9 weeks old.
Since its launch, I have painted over 600 portraits of babies, children, families, pets, houses and more recently, sports figures. I have had the amazing opportunity to paint portraits for a growing list of high profile athletes and Hollywood producers. Notably, I painted a portrait for television host and personality Billy Bush, who recently showcased the painting on his show Access Hollywood. I have also done work for Major League baseball players, NHL hockey players, an NFL football coach, NFL cheerleaders as well as a producer from the Blue Man Group.
Please let me know if you would like to have a custom portrait painted. All you need to do is send me a photo and I will recreate it into a original work of art.
