Update: I am now booked up for holiday delivery of custom portraits. I do sell gift cards if you still need a special gift for the holidays!

Hi! Welcome to EmmieBean. I specialize in custom illustrations inspired by your own photograph. Find a photo that captures the essence of you, your family, friends, pet, home, or anything else that makes you smile. Email me the photo, I'll draw it, and mail you the print.
