Pat would be happy to discuss working with you to create a portrait of you and/or your loved one(s). Ms. Joyce works from photographic images which she has taken, or, if that is not possible, from your photo. You are guaranteed a true legacy for you and your family. Ms. Joyce is unique in that she finds great personal reward from creating posthumous portraits.
"Creating a posthoumous portrait, while difficult to do, is extremely rewarding as an artist. I can't think of a better way to use my talent to, in some way, soothe the grief of a loved one. While many artists do not accept posthumous portrait commissions, I welcome them and put my heart and soul into each one", Pat Joyce.
