“The relationships I have with my clients and subjects are a driving force in my work. I’m passionate about creating a visual collaboration that brings them as much joy in viewing it as I have in painting it.” — sb

Commissioned portraiture might seem to belong to the corporate world, but when you see yourself or a loved one in a painting, you realize it’s a magical blend of expressive art and the essence of a person at a particular moment in time. Suzann Beck is uniquely equipped to partner with you to make the painting you envision a reality.

Contact Suzann now to start the conversation in creating a gift for someone to treasure, commemorate an occasion like an anniversary, wedding, or graduation, or simply capture you or a loved one in art.

The Process

After an initial meeting with the client to establish direction of the portrait, Suzann will compile an estimate and schedule a session to photograph the subject for reference. Depending on the style of the painting, at least one 3-hour sitting is needed for painting from life. A retainer of half the fee will be required to start the painting with the remaining half to be paid on delivery of the painting, depending on complexity and scheduling, roughly 6 to 12 months from the first sitting. Minnesota sales tax, framing costs, shipping (if needed), and travel costs are the responsibility of the client.
