I commissioned two pieces from Serena. One was a classic modern style print of my sister in her wedding dress and the other was of my dogs dressed up like they were going to the wedding! I was absolutely speechless when I opened up the package. The painting of my sister in her dress was classic, sleek and modern but still felt like it was her. My two dogs looked to die for as a flower girl and ring bearer. Serena did the interpretation of the dogs completely based on her genius imagination.

My step-daughter was presented with the "Thai the Clouded Leopard" print from the Valentine's series. Compared to the photo online, the print is exactly what I expected. The subtleties in the color and gentle brush strokes still shine through. This was sent to us elegantly matted in white, in a protective plastic sleeve, then wrapped in strong brown paper via USPS (envelope). It arrived perfectly without any damage.
When Serena revealed the stunning portrait of my 1 year old daughter, my jaw dropped. I had the honor to attend Serena's wedding where their photographer took an adorable picture of my daughter. We love that picture so much and we were grateful she gave us a copy. But, I was shocked when a hand painted watercolor version of the photo was presented as a gift! I could feel the care and deep consideration of each of Serena's delicate brush strokes. Also, the likeness is astounding. Even at first glance, my 1 year old knew it was a portrait of her. Now, she points to it all the time and says her name. How priceless! I am very thankful for such a personal and original painting! If I had the opportunity to purchase this, it would be worth every penny.
