As a portrait artist living and working in Longmont, Colorado, I have the opportunity to work with wonderful families to create portraits of the living as well as those who have passed. I work primarily in oils on linen and my personal style of painting is highly influenced by the Classical Realist tradition. Memorializing an individual through portraiture is a celebration of life. I maintain a high level of confidentiality and strive to build trust with my clients. More background and experience information is available on my website: www.gaynorcookenelson.com.
