Painting Portraits As A Story

Latest Commission

Commission of a portrait by Sarah Pagdin. Sarah told me the stories I needed to paint this portrait of her beloved father, an almost 90 year old gentleman.

Karin Merx, 2023, Arthur, Oil on Gesso board, 30.5 x 30.5cm, Sarah Pagdin


“What a wonderful journey it’s been having Karin paint a portrait of someone very dear to me. The final result is a beautiful testament to her creative process and skills. She’s listened carefully and involved me throughout, and has captured perfectly everything I love about the person in this gorgeous portrait. I would never ever have thought about commissioning a portrait but, having met Karin and seen her work, I knew without a doubt that I could trust her to handle something this personal. I’m so glad I did! Thank you Karin :-)”
