Commission A Portrait by Sybil A. Bissell
Sybil A. Bissell, M.A., J.D.

I have degrees in psychology, theology and law. I am retired from my professional work which has enabled me to spend my time doing art.

I began sketching and painting in 2008 and have found a latent talent, especially portrait painting. I have had both individual and group art lessons from local artists in Virginia.

Additionally, I have rediscovered my love of reading, especially Sara Douglass, Juliet Marillier and Deborah Harkness.

Great joy comes both in marriage, motherhood and grandmotherhood. I have an amazing husband and three awesome adult children. One of the Cartoonized portraits is my husband and myself (Cheers!), two of the realistic portraits are of my daughters and the portrait above is of my son and daughter-in-law. It's a joy to paint for my family.
