This is an original, hand-drawn family tree, made just for your family or loved one! Completed in graphite pencil, this tree has lots of fine details and is created on the highest quality Strathmore 500 Series Bristol Board. Made of 100% cotton fiber, it is archival and acid-free. The tree is spray-fixed when completed, to prevent smudging. The artwork measures 11" x 14" and arrives matted to a size of 16" x 20" and will be ready to place into your own frame. The drawing ships flat and will be protected in a poly sleeve with a backer board between layers of bubble wrap, foam core and cardboard.
This family tree features the "Honored Couple" on the trunk, their parents in the roots and subsequent generations in the limbs.
**Please Note: This size tree is suitable for only 4 generations at the most, including the two in the roots and on the trunk. I can create larger trees that will accommodate more people. Write me to discuss them.

Custom and personalized orders
Turnaround time depends upon the time of year. Late fall tends to be when orders come in quickly as shoppers think of giving a pet portrait as a holiday gift. I suggest placing your order over the late summer in order to get an early place in line.

I bought one of these to give to my mother Christmas. She was brought to tears, granted she is more dramatic than most people but the work is exceptional. It is really a beautiful piece of art. They even left an empty space on the tree for my sister, who is expecting. It is a fantastic gift for anyone who cares about lineage or family.

If I could give this product and shop 10 stars, I would! Tammy is a suburb artist, and she worked her tail off to not only create the perfect family tree for my in-laws, but she went above and beyond to assure it was here in time for Christmas, which took some jumping thru hoops on her behalf! You won't be disappointed with anything you order from this shop. Top notch!
