Bailey – Oil Painting.  ” .. my brother and his family adored the portrait of Bailey. My brother immediately took down photos….and replaced them with Bailey’s portrait over the center of the fireplace mantel in their den. They thought it was so accurate, that it must have been digitally printed, but then smelled the fresh paint and knew it was hand painted and were amazed.  Thank you so much for all the effort! ” LW  January 2017

SIXTY Illustrated graphic:  “Hi ShawnaLee,  I wanted to thank you again for the wonderful job you did on my friends 60th b-day gift.  Bob and his family loved it and found it to be unique and original.  The attention to detail and likeness on the skiers face was a hit. The fly fisherman had his son saying “dad that is definitely you from the back.”  Thanks again  Best  Ralph  10/25/2016

Conner_and_Gunner_254559ce18291d.jpgConnor with Gunner: “Shawna Lee did portraits of my boys and it is remarkable how she captured their likeness exactly. They say the sign of a good portrait artist is capturing the eyes and she nailed it. It’s almost like a photograph. Two were done in pencil and the third was in a colorful medium not sure maybe charcoal or pastels. They are my favorite art pieces in our home.”  Debbie Gore
