Founded in December 2015 by Alix Greenberg, Portraits for Good is a group of five artists who can turn your photograph into a work of art. And, as a bonus, a portion of the proceeds from each sale goes to one of over a dozen non-profit charities partnering with the company.
There are just three steps to making the magic happen:
- Select an artist from the Portraits for Good online gallery
- Upload your photo (you can also just pick a limited edition print instead)
- Select a charity at checkout
That's all there is to it for Portraits for Good to deliver your art framed and ready for display.
It takes between two and three weeks to complete an order with shipping adding another three to five days.
A SPECIAL DEAL
Through March 31, Greenberg is herself offering a 20 percent discount on a quality wood custom frame by Frameology for her portraits when you use the code MAMA17 at checkout.
Greenberg, who was born and raised in New York City, received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Cornell University in 2009 with a focus on painting and portraiture, and holds a Master's degree in History of Art and the Art Market. She began her professional career at Christie's and has held positions working for artist Peter Tunney at Skarstedt Gallery and for the American Friends of the Israel Museum in development.
Inspired by the culture of giving back, she founded Portraits for Good in 2015. Having devoted her professional and academic life immersed in the fine art world, she created this company as a forum for artists to make art and simultaneously do good. Alix's artwork has been featured in several publications including the 'Sconset Limited and the Horace Mann Review.
In addition to Greenberg, featured artists include Melissa Brice, Denton Burrows, Joey Feldman, Harley Langberg and Mike Natter.
