Penelope Gilbert-Ng creates classically inspired contemporary custom oil and pastel portrait paintings for official, corporate and private commissions. Her oil portraiture brings to mind a level of craftsmanship and artistry that many believe no longer exists. Her paintings are inspired by the very sensibilities of the Impressionist Era. By combining superb draughtsmanship with subtle life-like color and deft paint handling, Penelope creates cherished heirlooms that reveal the true spirit of her subjects. Whether you wish to honor a beloved family member, recognize a momentous career achievement, or give that special someone a truly incomparable gift, you can commission Penelope to create an extraordinary, unique and timeless work of art.

Selecting the best portrait painter to create your commission is an important decision. Since a well crafted oil painting will last for hundreds of years, you, and your ancestors will be looking at your commissioned portrait for a long time. It's important that you are one hundred percent satisfied with the result. Many of Penelope's clients are avid art collectors, and they want their portraits to be comprable to the museum quality paintings in their collections. Penelope is a true perfectionist and her credo - that her next painting be her best - keeps her constantly striving to reach even greater artistic heights.
