“ The ability to choose a photo rather than having a sitting is so empowering. You are not limited by time or distance & the art is so vibrant and reflective. It creates a very positive and engaging result.”
- Barb (Marketing Executive)
PROCESS
Pop Art Portraits

Margaret Irving’s Pop Art portraits have been compared to the work of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, but she has her own, more painterly and realistic style. Startlingly detailed eyes, beautifully painted hair, and perfect colour schemes to match a client’s décor are a few trademarks of her art.

I work from your digital or printed photograph. They can be emailed or snail mailed depending on which kind they are. The portraits are meticulously hand painted using my new method and the result is a very rich and clean looking canvas.

Proofs are emailed to you and changes can be made before the final approval, and printing.
Canvas prints are stretched over a wood frame in the gallery mounted style and come ready to hang with hardware and wire on the back. Four coats of UV protectant and clear coating complete the work process. If you wish to see more “live” samples of my work contact me for a list of locations of current displays.

After deciding on shape, size, number of images and colour, a 50% deposit is taken and work takes approximately three weeks. Basic work can begin if you need time to research colours. Please contact me for a specific quote and timeline for completion of your portrait.


The Options

Multiple images such as four squares with a face in each one are the most requested portraits, but single portraits, couples, pets or family groups are also done. Groups of single portraits together or lined up in a stairwell or large hallway are also a terrific option.

Three siblings in a row or a parent with a child on either side is a great gift (for example to a parent or grandparent).

For a surprise birthday, Christmas, anniversary or any occasion gift or just for your self a Pop Art Portrait has that wow factor.

For signing events like bar mitzvahs, I have framing instructions for you and your picture framer for making a special portrait memento.
All work is custom made. Let me know if you have an idea for a portrait layout not shown on my site or are unsure which format is right for your needs.


Corporate Suggestions

Large or medium size Pop Art Portraits give your business lobby or office a modern look and make great rewards for special employees.
