About the Process
To commission a customized portrait or scenic landscape, decide if you prefer oil or watercolor (The images shown here are samples of previous works. Your item will be an original).
Select & purchase the closest approximate size you'll have her design. Candace will then contact you in order to discuss creative options and specific art direction, according to your aesthetic.
Portraits are painted from photograph/s you will send to her (digitally). While consulting with you, she will explain the best types of reference images to provide. Also, if you have no photos available, Candace is able to travel directly to you, in order to capture photographs of your subject (for an additional fee).
*Price includes consultation, advice and an all round creative experience, from conceptualizing to delivery of your 'one of a kind' magnificent Work of Art.
Satisfaction is guaranteed.
Crating is included but shipping charges will apply.
About the Artist
As a southerner, ‘born and raised’, Candace Wagner grew up with traditional values and always a keen appreciation for the wonders of God’s creation. A patient artist and illustrator, she captures with her paints, the unique details of each individual most others would miss. Early acceptance in South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and a B.F.A. in Illustration from Ringling College of Art and Design are formal complements to Candace's natural abilities. While
attending RCAD, she was selected as one of "Who's Who in American Universities and Colleges". Candace’s professional career began as a scenic artist for a local theater and burgeoned into creating large scale murals for clients such as Royal Caribbean International & Celebrity Cruises. As
her skill level progressed, clients began to request portraits of their loved ones and now traditional portraiture is her main artistic focus. Painting beloved dogs is her specialty.
Private works — precisely drawn and brilliantly painted — have garnered her the recognition from art lovers throughout the nation. Fine oil portraits capture family members in heirloom quality, honoring true likeness. Scenic works transform your space with absolute serenity.
