Send me a favorite photo, I'll create a digital-oil painting on canvas & ship anywhere.


My name is Joseph Dea, I am a professional contemporary American portrait artist & painter living in Los Angeles (West Hollywood,) California.

I specialize in custom, life-like, highly detailed, digitally hand-painted commissioned portrait painting art on canvas created from your photos.  I paint pets, dogs, cats, birds, turtles & equine thoroughbred race horses. I also paint families, parents, children, grandchildren, boys, girls, babies plus soldier, military, CEO, corporate, government, judicial, official, executive & bridal portrait paintings. Send me a photo of your family, your wedding, your house, your vacation landscape & seascape photos or your best friend - I will paint it. I can even create a work of art from your treasured old B&W photos.

You can also order a portrait painting gift certificate.

My digital paintings are giclées on premium artist canvas. Each canvas is hand wrapped on a wood stretcher and ready to hang. A protective gloss finish prevents fading & cracking. The finished giclée canvas looks similar to a traditional oil painting on canvas. The side depth of the wrapped canvas is 1.25”. The sides are white. I also offer framing and free standard shipping.
