Yella creates life-size hyperrealistic portraits and abstract paintings to commemorate prominent and inspirational figures in her life and in today's world.

A significant part of Yella's creative practice is painting bespoke pieces- 1 of 1 art created specifically with you in mind. It is an extraordinary and thrilling process for both artist and collector having an exclusive and collaborative experience. Collectors are able to share their own stories and significant memories with Yella and have these photographed moments brought to life on canvas. Every eyelash, every flicker of light. Yella's unique style leaves no detail behind. It is her goal to recreate your special moment to last a lifetime and tell your story for generations to come. 



1. The first step in the commission process is to determine the size of the painting that would best compliment the space in which you wish to display it. Once the dimensions are chosen, the fun begins with gathering images that both inspire you and speak to the vision you are hoping to achieve. For hyperrealistic portraits, high resolution photographs are paramount. Please include these in the submission form on this page below. 

Once Yella's team has followed up with you and the commission has been agreed upon, creative direction and dimensions have been established, a 50% deposit is required to secure and schedule your project and to allow for the mock up rendering process to begin. 

Note: You may pay in full at this time, however, only 50%  is required. The painting is shipped once the full balance is paid. 


Yella's life-size originals carry a turn around time of 3-6 months to complete (350-500 painting hours). ​Rush may be available. Ask for details. 

All commissioned paintings are stretched & lined with delicate faux suede along the backside with all hardware attached and ready to hang. All artwork is coated and sealed with high-quality satin, matte or gloss varnish to enhance colors & reduce glare while providing protection from dust, moisture and UV rays. All commissions include a Certificate of Authenticity titled with the name of your painting (chosen by you, the collector)  embossed & hand-signed by Yella. 


 Shipping: Lifesize canvas artwork is delicately packaged, crated, insured and shipped through a Fine Art shipping company to ensure your painting arrives in pristine condition. Shipping fees will be calculated per your shipping destination and added to the total balance.
