Suzanne Boland

Oil Painted & Fine Art Portraits

Each stroke of the paint brush on an oil portrait is done by Jocelyn. Having a masterful understanding of light, tone, mood and style lends to a work of art known as fine art, created with a passion and attention to every detail.

The ultimate luxury. Fine Art and Masterpiece Oil portraits go beyond what is captured in camera. Masterpiece Oil portraits are painted by Jocelyn, using artist oils and mixed media to create an original work of art. Each painting is finished on canvas and sprayed with lustre lacquer for richness and longevity. Fine Art B&W portraits begin with Jocelyn's highly sought after lighting that creates rich deep tones and specular highlights for each subject. Each portrait is hand printed on museum quality papers by our master printer in NYC. Artist Enhanced portraits are born of Jocelyn's keen eye and creativity, using a variety of art media and artists techniques to create a one of a kind art piece.

The Modern Woman Portraits

It takes a woman to know how a woman should be photographed to ensure
she sees herself as the beauty everyone else knows her to be.”

We are more than moms, wives and girlfriends. We are strong, capable, soft and feminine. We’re staying younger longer, and feeling great! It’s time to celebrate all that the modern woman brings to the world. Look at these modern women and why they chose to say that yes, I am important too. A portrait of a mother in the home tells a daughter that it’s okay to make yourself a priority. It says to her son, that one day, he may have a loving yet independent woman as his life partner. It says to herself, that she is worthy of celebration, all on her own.
