Welcome to my blog

Art Lady Manor is an anagram of my real name, which I thought was fitting for my online businesses at*, and

I also have my own website at where I sell custom portrait drawings.

About 5 years ago I came upon an automated technique for converting photos into black & white drawings. The technique was very simple, and looked very computer generated. However, I loved the idea of creating art from photographs so I came up with my own technique that utilizes my skills as an artist and photoshop guru.
My friends and family raved about my sketches and thought I had drawn them the traditional way. A friend even bet her husband that they were hand-drawn with pencil and paper. She lost. The friend's husband only suspected that they were created digitally only because he thought they were too precise. I called my creations Precise Portrayals.
