Story Montage Series: Portrait

You alone created my inner being. You knitted me together inside my mother. I will give thanks to you because I have been so amazingly and miraculously made. Your works are miraculous, and my soul is fully aware of this.
Our choices, actions, and the people who help us along the way truly shape the portrait of who we are. Through spending time with my subjects, collaboration, and research, I mentally visualize the specific elements to include in your portrait— telling the tale of who you are, and your unique journey. Each of my portraits are an amalgam of digital technique, harmonious composition of color, and focused on those precious moments and experiences that define the subject’s personality.
Entrepreneur. Inventor. Mother. Father. Husband. Wife. The Story Montage Series aims to show how cherished and unique your life is; celebrated and treasured by you, and the people around you. These bold yet stylishly subtle portraits are produced on high-quality canvas and hand-wrapped over a 1.5 inch frame with a think protective lamination. Presented over black gallery grade float frames, wire hangers, paper backing, and cushioned pumpers.


I always begin the process by spending time to get to know my subject matter through direct interview or through people close to them.  The findings will breath life into my creative process.


Painstaking research will be conducted to identify and select elements that can help to tell the best story within the limited space.


It’s time to utilize all the gathered information to carefully craft the Story Montage, taking into account all aspects of design.


Every piece of art is carefully composited and fine-tuned from top to bottom. Every element has a purpose. Some of the elements are embedded deep into the piece that give pleasant surprise to our client when discovering the details.


Only professional gallery quality is worthy for the Story Montage Portrait art. The final piece is finished with premium gallery wrap and mounted on a float frame with protected lamination. 100% Made in USA.

Transforms Your Biography into Visual Art.

You can find photo albums, written biographies, and even video documentaries of a person. But it’s seldom that you’ll find a single portrait that can do the same thing. To achieve such feat, one has to hone the talents and imagination of an artist, the eye of a photographer, the insight, skills and seasoned experience of an art director. That’s why I have decided to offer you the opportunity to have your own Story Montage Portrait. Your portrait will filled with rich details, colors, elements that means a lot to you and your life experience. Truly a one-of-a-kind art work of art about you and your story. – Chris Lo / Visual Artist.

It’s our challenges and obstacles that give us layers of depth and make us interesting. Are they fun when they happen? No. But they are what make us unique. And that’s what I know for sure… I think. – Ellen DeGeneres

Tailored to Tell Your Story

You are unique, so should your portrait.

If a headshot or a standard portrait painting can tell a thousand words, my Story Montage Portrait can tell a lot more. It doesn’t just tell a single story, a single experience but many stories across time. How far you like to go is completely up to you. Some would like to have a Story Montage Portrait done every 10 years, while some like to have one to remember a loved one by. But one thing for sure – each one is uniquely, masterfully made – just like you.

Individually Crafted with Care & Masterfully Made.
