Portrait Paintings

April Dyck portrait portraits are vastly different than her contemporaries.  Any qualified artist can paint a portrait to represent your loved one, but why not capture their personality and essence as well?  Why just paint a figure?  That is what separates April Dyck from her peers, her ability to paint life in the portrait and encapsulate a moment forever.  There is nothing lifeless or stagnant about April Dyck's portrait paintings:  they breathe, they respond to your gaze, and they live forever in a moment. 

What a beautiful and timeless gift - a gift of immortality.  Unlike a photograph, a portrait is a keepsake, an heirloom, and a treasure to be passed down for generations.  More importantly your investment in this commissioned artwork will continue to appreciate in value.
