For a truly original gift for yourself or someone
you love, order a customized cut paper portrait. Not only are these perfect
for your own walls, but make great party pieces as custom invitations
and luminaria centerpieces. Trenchard has been perfecting the portraiture
technique for several years, and she thrives on new subjects to portray. She can work from photographs and preserve your memories as a work of art. (Children, parents, pets, working people - you name it.)
