The Process

The time needed for completion will be determined based on the size and subject matter of the photograph. In general a painting will take two months to complete. If you have a deadline, Richelle may be able to accommodate you.

As a born and raised Calgarian, Richelle has painted a variety of subjects including western scenes, animals and portraits.
