Commission Portraits

I love painting portraits! And to make sure I can give you my best, I take on just two commissions each month. This allows me to take my time so that I can feel out all the nuances of the people I'm painting. 


I was moved to tears when I saw what Lisa had created from the little bits and pieces I sent her about our trip and the details that I wanted included in our granddaughter’s portrait.  Lisa took interesting elements from each photo I supplied her and wound them into two unique pieces that went well beyond my expectations. 


Lisa’s body of work speaks for itself but for what it is worth, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend working with her to anyone, she was so upbeat and pleasant. 


Our artwork arrived on time, on budget and we have two pieces we are very proud to display in our home.

Hi, I’m Lisa Heinricks, a multidisciplinary artist with a passion for giving back.

Through the years of honing my skills and growing my professional artistic practice, I've discovered that the real secret to my creativity is the Art of Giving Back. Giving back through my art is very fulfilling and fuels my creative fire. 

Every year I gift a free portrait to a family in need, either because of illness or circumstance. I also donate at least four paintings each year to various charities and fundraisers.

The relationship between an Artist and Patron are two sides of a coin that cannot be separated, for, without the Patrons, the Artist can't exist. But there is also the vital and often disregarded side to the coin: the edge. For me, this is the sweet spot where I get to share the personal background of my art world so that you can get to know me and what goes into my work. Whether you're an existing client or considering commissioning me to capture the beauty of your loved ones, or new to the world of original art and thinking about buying your first painting - you'll get to discover up-close the personal background of my artistic world. I'm thrilled to invite you to sign up for my Exclusive Newsletter, the Edge. 


When you sign up you'll receive three fantastic Patron Perks:

  1. Giving Back Family Portrait Program - I donate a free family portrait once a year to a unique family who is in need because of illness or circumstance. As a Patron, you can nominate someone you know. 

  2. Giving Back X 4 Program - I donate a minimum of four paintings a year to various charities and fundraisers. As a Patron, your submissions will help me select which organizations and fundraisers to give back to. 

  3. Receive a printable PDF of Chapters One and Two of The Adventures of Captain Awesome.


I believe making art is much more than only making art. It's a bridge to making the world a better place through beauty, relationships and giving back. 


Welcome to my artistic world!



I'm fortunate to have my home base and sanctuary in Penticton, B.C., Canada. It's one of the most beautiful places I know of, and its quaintness, hot summers and room for quietude are a rich source of inspiration.

I'd love to hear from you! Get in touch with me here, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
