I would like to share this lovely endorsement I received for my most recent commissioned portrait Josie.

“While I look forward to watching my beautiful granddaughters grow into adults, I also wanted to be able to remember them in their delightful childhood. Tiburon artist Ingrid Lockowandt provided me this pleasure. Ingrid created portraits of my treasured granddaughters — Emily, 9, and Josie, now 7 — that are carefully rendered and capture the girls’ distinct personalities. A pleasure to work with, Ingrid spent time bonding with my granddaughters and learning about them. She then applied these details into her art. The end result was a pair of portraits that I will forever treasure.

I first met Ingrid at the Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society’s “Walk Your History Into the Open Space” event in 2015, where she displayed her paintings. But it was at her lively Pop-Up Art Exhibit in the former Shark’s Deli parking lot on Tiburon Blvd. in 2016, where I saw her wide variety of portraits and figure landscape paintings that convinced me to commission her work.

When I was a docent at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco in the 80s, I asked a fellow docent — also an artist — to do pastels of my children. These pastels hold wonderful memories for me. Ingrid’s acrylic portraits of my granddaughters have by far exceeded my expectation and will be lasting treasures for the next generation”.
