Welcome to my Studio

Custom art from your photographs to celebrate your special moments. In person art workshops. Original paintings, art prints, and art cards created from my current collections.

Hi , I'm Haike

I'm an artist specializing in portraiture and custom art from your photos. There is nothing more fun than helping you see the magic in your everyday photos. Imagine grandma's teacups, or an old pair of hockey skates turned into custom art for your walls. Not to mention, painting a fun portrait of your child or fur baby from a simple phone pic. I started painting to entertain my kids many years ago and fell in love with capturing moments and telling stories in graphite and paint. Now, I love commissions, put out a few original collections per year, and also teach "Wine & Watercolours" classes in my home studio. You can see my current collections at Arts Off Main Gallery in Vancouver.

Work With Me

Custom Art

Dreaming of turning some of your favourite photos into hand painted artwork? Let's work together. We can get started in just 3 easy steps. I get it. It can be scary to hire an artist for custom work. What if they get it wrong? That's why I have built "check-ins" into my process to make sure we are on the same page the whole way. My business has been built entirely on delivering artworks that delight, resulting in repeat customers, testimonials and referrals. You are in the right place!

"I wanted to get a portrait of our recently passed dog Frank for my husband and I's 1 year anniversary. I wanted to make sure it was hand done in watercolor and through a small business that I could afford to support. I did a lot of googling and found your site! The fact you asked about our pet Frank to help you shape his personality in your artwork really meant the world to me. It made us feel like we had asked a friend who knew Frank to paint for us. Thank you so much again!!!!"
