My inspiration. 

When I was grieving the initial loss of my Pop Pop, I decided to draw him. And not on paper as I normally would. Instead, I used a woodburning tool that my Dad found in our garage. 

I hadn't seen my Pop Pop's smile since his passing and as I etched it into the wood, I could feel his presence. Seeing my finished project made me smile again too. My Pop was my biggest supporter. And like the portrait I made of him, his spirit is forever engrained in my heart. 

There's something about the human quality of these portraits that brings the person (or animal!) to life. I thoroughly enjoy creating them and I would love to make one for you too!

Upon purchase, send me an image of your loved one and I'll woodburn a portrait for you! Contact me directly for more info!

My Pop Pop didn't have to spend this September 11th without his son, and the thought of that makes me really happy. Adding to my wood-burned portraits is my Uncle Jeff, which I've placed right next to my Pop's. My two biggest heroes, always watching over us, forever in our hearts. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‘ΌπŸ»β€οΈπŸ‘ΌπŸ»πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
