A weekend of care and comfort



S'Oil Studio - soul in oil


S'oil paintings, water-called paintings and pen-souled drawing ORIGINALS

can not be purchased. They are my gift to the next of kin of someone who has lost a loved one too early in life.


My art work contains soul!


What is required to receive a portrait?

I prefer a s'oil portrait request to come from the next of kin.

3 -4 high resolution photographs and a brief description about the individual is required. All provided photographs and information will be returned with the finished portrait. Please keep in mind that the work of art can only be as good as the reference material supplied. The description provided  helps me get to know my subject so that I can capture them in my medium.

An artist is pulled to their next work of art so portraits are selected completely at random.

 The s'oil ((oil) paintings, water-called( (watercolour) or pen-souled (pencil) drawings are unframed and approximately 9 x 12 inches in size.

All I ask of the recipient in return is that they please respect all canadian copyright laws. 


Email to inquire.




Please visit Lucy's website at



"My wish is that my gift will touch the recipient and preserve their loved one in a work of art."
