unique, memory inspired masterpieces for your home

Using your favorite photographs.

Special times in our lives create memories we hold dear in our hearts.

 You want art for your home but don't have time to search the internet, go to shows or meet with interior designers.

You will know what you like when you see it, so it only seems logical to work with an artist who understands you, your unique style and your vision.

commissioning art work is much easier than you might think....

From our first contact, maybe a phone call, text or an in-home visit, you will be led through the complete process.  I will listen to your desires as you explain the vision you have for your personal art. We will create a plan and I will present you with several draft images while maintaining close communication through every step of the creative process assuring you that the final masterpiece will meet your expectations.

Photographs are a record of experiences.  Some of those images become very precious to us and we find comfort, love and laughter viewing them.  I will use your photo or photos to create a masterpiece for your home.  I also specialize in developing custom works of art based on your creative visions, dreams and the concepts formed in your imagination.

The first step in this process is to contact me (judy@judyhorn.com or call 253 350 3147) to have a conversation around your thoughts and desires. If you want the masterpiece based on one or several photos you can send them to me in several different ways so I can give you feedback on the possibilities of your art.

Don't forget your travel photos, this large mural was created with photographs taken during a trip to Prague.  This is a great way to remember that dream trip.  The collage was produced about 10 feet long and nicely fills the wall in the formal dining room.

I like would to create a masterpiece for your home.

Background and Experience

Creating works of art using painting and drawing techniques

have been passions of mine for a very long time.  Meeting

the needs of my clients and having them appreciate the

familiar look in the eyes of a family member or the likeness

of a horse that has given it's master years of wonderful

service and love is my goal.

My work is featured in many of the elegant homes in the

Pacific Northwest, from locations along the coasts of

Washington and Oregon to the ranches on the eastern side

of the Cascade Mountains.

Award winning designs featured in national and local publications, including the Professional Photographers Loan Collection Books.

Frequently asked questions

How long does it take to create a masterpiece?


Usually four to six weeks, but it also depends on the number of subjects and the complexity of the composition.




How much does a portrait cost?


A 16x20 portrait is $450. Larger ones will cost more and the price also depends on the number of subjects.




How do I get my photos to you?


They can be mailed or sent by email. If sent by email be sure to send the largest file size of the image possible using a .jpg format.




Are portraits framed?


Not normally due to shipping costs. You will receive your portrait either on watercolor paper or on canvas (not stretched) and you can have a local framer frame the portrait the way you want it finished. Adjustments to this can be made depending on circumstances and your desires.




What tools do you use to create the portrait?


I will use the photographs as the basic starting point and will also use blending of artistry, light, textures and shadows. Brushes both traditional and electronic bring out the the luminosity and elegance of the masterpiece. Once the image is created it is transposed to an electronic format and the final image is printed on archival watercolor paper or canvas and further enhanced. Other media can also be used if desired, such as printed on metal or acrylic.
