Photos are nice. Paintings are amazing.

What do you get the person who has everything? Flowers? Chocolates?  Try a more personal gift that will last for generations.  A beautiful portrait is a touching and unique gift that will be treasured.

I, Karen Michell Lane, am a Houston, Texas based fine artist who specializes in portrait oil and soft pastel painting.  With over 15 years of experience, I have created dozens of custom artworks for patrons and collectors.  I pride myself on capturing the essence of a person by focusing on the face.  My paintings encapsulate the warmth and energy in each unique face which results in an enraptured expression.  I am a believer in the strength and permanence of classic art and draw inspiration from my greatest influences, Leonardo Da Vinci and Vincent Van Gogh.  

Though my first love is oil painting, I expanded my work into pastels in an effort to better artistically express the human spirit. Portraiture gives me the opportunity to focus on the spirit of the subject.  Consider the pleasure of having your loved ones painted and honor those you love with beautiful portrait art. 

Your portrait will be created by hand using a variety of professional Artist-Grade  oils and pastels that are non-yellowing, non-toxic and resistant to resistant to UV light and mildew damage. I use only high quality archival materials so that your portrait will be an heirloom to cherish for years to come.
