– Frank Lloyd Wright

Leisa did an amazing job on my grandmas house. She just sold her house and I wanted her to have a good memory of it. What better way than a beautiful painting. It came out perfect!! We just got it today and grandma is smiling from ear to ear with joy. Leisa is super kind and easy to work with. Thank you Leisa for this beautiful painting.

Leisa's amazing watercolor made the perfect gift to my wife for our 25th anniversary! Leisa captured not only the precise details of our home of 22 years, she captured the very spirit of it. She took the time to really understand what the home meant to us, and how we raised a bunch of kids and a bunch of dogs there, and then baked that understanding into a beautiful, lasting testimony.

Leisa is a gifted artist who also happens to be a super nice person. She captured our bungalow home perfectly! She even accommodated us by adding our 1935 classic car to the scene. It wasn't in the driveway when Leisa first saw and sketched our home. When my husband Mike contacted her, she readily agreed to send a photographer to take pics of the car in the driveway. As you can see, Leisa gave us a beautiful rendition of our home that we will treasure forever. We have since moved out of the area but we have a beautiful memento to remind us of our life in San Jose.

Leisa is a truly gifted artist who chose to paint my home as part of a series she was doing in Royal Oak, MI. My wife and I could not wait for the original to arrive in the mail. You can really see the crisp architecture lines of the house contrasted against the vibrant watercolors. It was so beautiful and she captured every detail including our little free library, the landscaping and front porch accessories. The painting has already become a conversation piece in our home. I would highly recommend Leisa Collins Artwork. She is an amazing artist and passionate about architecture.

When your package arrived, we couldn’t wait to open it and unveil the painting of our home. Wow, the portrait walked right off the paper and into our hearts. Through your eyes we were invited to step onto the grass, stand in the shade of the maple tree, and admire the architectural details of our historical home all the way from the staggered shake siding and limestone exterior to the curved line of our roof. While taking in your view, we felt surrounded by the colors of the lush landscape. Thank you Leisa for creating a lasting impression of our home as art.

Leisa reached out to us and said she had painted our home and if we were interested, we could have first chance at purchasing. Yesterday, I saw her creation, and I was speechless with her work. I will cherish this piece of art. I would highly recommend Leisa to anyone that might want to have a watercolor portrait of their home.

When I received a note in the mail that Leisa had chosen to paint a picture of our house, I had not heard of her. So, I went to her website, and I was thrilled to see all of the lovely portraits of homes and buildings that she creates. I immediately got in touch to purchase the original artwork of our home. And just yesterday I received the painting in the mail from Leisa, and it is just gorgeous. She captured so much that we love about our home. Her inclusion of a digital copy is a terrific bonus, as well! I plan to commission her to paint a portrait of my parents' home, which they built themselves over 50 years ago. I am so happy to have found Leisa, she is wonderfully talented and I will be recommending her to my friends and family.

Hi Leisa, Well, so much for me keeping secret my husbands surprise Christmas gift! I made it all of 6 hours before I got so excited I had to share your beautiful rendering with my husband, Mike. No regrets, he absolutely loved your painting of our home. We were so pleased that you chose to paint our home. Your artistic skills and attention to detail truly captioned the essence of our "home". The painting you created for us will be something we will cherish for years to come. Best wishes! Dana K Kansas City, Missouri
