“My cousin Norman Rockwell was so inspiring because through his oil paintings on 300+ Saturday Evening Post magazine covers, he showed people as warm, human and truthful. He helped Americans to care about others and thus to remember that each of us can make a difference in each others’ lives. I carry on that tradition in my own way. By viewing my custom oil portraits of children and family, it is my intention that people see the best in others and feel the best about themselves so that everyone creates good effects and gets along.” — Jessica Rockwell

Then there is another gallery just for Charcoal Portraits. There is also a gallery devoted to Photo-to Painting where you can see the photographic references Ms. Rockwell looked at as she drew and painted them in oil or charcoal. See for yourself how she has earned her reputation for capturing the true living “essence” of her subject and how you can benefit by her expertise for your portrait.
