Betsy's Photography

Dexter + Ann Arbor Paintings + Painted Portraits

We create heirloom quality painted portraits from your treasured family photo snapshots.


Sometimes a snapshot, blurry or faded, is our favorite reminder of a loved one. What if you could turn that snapshot into something more? What if you could display a rendition of it on your wall -- not just as a cherished snapshot -- but as an heirloom work of art?

That's what I do. Using a combination of traditional training in the arts and modern digital techniques, I create a one-of-a-kind work of art from your treasured snapshot.

View some "before + after" examples of painted portraits alongside the original photo snapshot. If you'd like to commission me to do a painted portrait from one of your photos, please contact the studio!
