Kathleen Nelson Fine Art


Featured Project

A returning client, a Real Estate agent in Barrington, Illinois commissioned, me to do a water color illustration of her client’s home. The Realtor wanted something to give her client after she sold their home. She presented this lovely illustration to her client at the closing.

I’m happy to report that the client was thrilled with it!
