Gold-Leaf House Portraits

In my eyes, our houses are autobiographical. After my parent's house burned down I started making these drawings as a way to commemorate that importance in a physical way. These sentimental drawings make great gifts and can depict the construction phase of a rebuild, your childhood home, your current home, or as a housewarming gift. My mission is to make each drawing feel truly personal and I work closely with each client to ensure that important details are highlighted.

How it Works:

  • Initial consultation and advising of image choice and color combinations. To ensure your satisfaction the drawing will begin when you approve an emailed proof. If you're in Austin I can come to your house and take the picture for you (complimentary but optional).

  • Ready-to-hang: drawings are 7.5" x 8" matted in a 14.5" x 14" low profile black metal frame. 

  • Graphite (pencil) on duralar (an archival plastic paper).

  • Metal leaf of choice: silver, gold, or genuine copper. The metal areas will shine and reflect as you walk by and typically are applied to areas where the light would be (like the sky). 

  • Acrylic accent color, like the blue in the example, is mixed to order (optional).

  • An image of the drawing will be emailed to you upon completion, at which point you can ask for adjustments. Once approved the drawing will be framed and ready to pick up/ship.

  • In-studio pick up is free, and shipping is available at market price. The $100 balance is due with deliver/pick up.

How to get started?

To get started please email rachelwolfson4 (at) gmail (dot) com or use the contact form. When we agree on an image to use a $150 down payment is due. Drawings are typically ready in two weeks or less. 

In Austin?

If you're in Austin I'm happy to come to your house to shoot the picture for you.
