Capturing history and preserving it forever isn’t just art, it’s a magical accomplishment.
A painted portrait sounds like a relatively straightforward thing — a carefully crafted picture of someone — but across time it has proven to be a much more elusive creation.
At a certain point, portraiture seems to be less of a genre than a blurry constellation of suggested guidelines, or even just something you have to see to recognize. A painted portrait becomes a cherished family heirloom that lasts for centuries — embodying the likeness, personality, spirit and essence of the subject — to be forever remembered.
Commissioning a portrait is an extremely personal decision. Much like any fruitful partnership, there must be a trusting relationship. Award-winning artist Ingrid C. Lockowandt’s approach is to establish a personal connection with her subjects. She looks beyond the surface of her subject’s likeness to find the deeper personality, character and essence.
A member of the Portrait Society of America, Ingrid very much enjoys creating art for clients and finds the collaborative process both exciting and inspiring. With her passion for detail and ability to capture the essence, likeness and the true spirit of her subject matter, she has created works that have delighted clients throughout the world.
