A successful portrait, whether in painting or sculpture, is one that captures that which is beyond the physical; the spirit, the eternal essence.  And what better medium to express this agelessness, than the most enduring stone of all, jade, The Stone of Heaven?
Whether on its own, or in combination with other materials, a portrait of a loved one in jade becomes a priceless heirloom to be passed down through generations.
The immortalized sweet face of 18 month old little Nicholas, was commissioned by his grandparents, Mr. & Mrs. Rudy Estrada, of San Marino, CA.
