Welcome to Beloved Portraits by Patti Bradeis



This slideshow requires JavaScript.


          What drew me to pencil and paper was the need to capture the uninhibited, joy filled spirit of my first born grandchild. She is, as with all children, emotionally expressive.  Children are blessed with the freedom of being authentic and I enjoy drawing their spontaneity.
           Each portrait is drawn from a photograph  or combined photos.  Sensitive details such as each eyelash, a single loose thread from a button, the individual shades in the iris, the folds in clothing, all combined, produce the personal capsule of time in each portrait that evokes lasting memories.
            I hope each one prompts your heart to experience spontaneous delight with a contented smile, a gentle sigh, or deep chuckle.
I invite you to visit ‘Beloved Portraits by Patti Bradeis’ on Facebook to view a more personal glimpse of my art work…. (https://www.facebook.com/belovedportraits/)

  1. Ptti, I am shocked & blessed by this awsomw gift God has given you. I will keep my eyes pealed for a picture you can do for me. I know I will have to takre a number!!!!!!!

    1. Hi Pam. Your shocked? I’M STILL SHOCKED! I asked Him on my 50th b’day (with new pencil in hand) to please allow me to draw. He took that little short prayer and magnified it to what you see on here. I get giggle bubbles still in the center of my soul each time I complete a section as I’m working on a portrait. AND He clearly directed me where to use the profit from it for His praise and glory! I am constantly humbled by His blessing. Gotta stop, I could go on a rampage! lol
      Ok, while your looking for a picture, keep in mind the ones with the sharp focus, very clear details, produce the most accurate portraits. If a favorite is a bit out of focus, I can draw it but the clarity will be less, just like the photo.
      Just give me a call with any questions. Love you….Patti

  2. Dear Patti, What a talented gift from the Almighty. The photos & drawings do evict good thoughts & emotions like a Rockwell painting. Yes, you’re that blessed, with such a grandaughter, and I have an eye for good art.

      1. Bokar Tov, I would be honored if you drew the background to the Title
        cover to my book when it is completed. Danny
