"I was looking to do a portrait painting of my boyfriend's beloved mother who passed this past February. I googled portrait paintings and your company was one of the ones listed. I did my research and was highly impressed with your company's work so I decided to go with "What A Portrait" it being my first time! Let me tell you it was the best decision EVER! The portrait was beautifully done in a week and shipped from China in a couple of days. Truly amazed with the artistry! I will definitely recommend this company to any and everyone. I'm truly grateful and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

All the best,
Daira Torres"

What our clients say
"I thought I would share this with you. I have 7 previous caricatures from WhataPortrait. I have them lining the walls on the stairs leading to the playroom. The two I have on order are needed because one of the families added a child, so I need to update their family.
Just thought you might enjoy seeing the work you all do being displayed."
