I wanted to tell you how happy we are with the artwork you did for us.  You are actually the first artist I've ever commissioned to do any type of personal work, and I must say that you have a left a lasting impression. I knew you had talent after looking at your website, and that's why we chose you to do the piece.  However, I got the impression you had never done any type of work involving a motorcycle before, yet you were able to capture the details from a mere photograph.  In fact, you made it look better than the photograph. Not only is your talent superior, but you were so easy to work with.  You kept in constant contact and satisfied our anticipation with updates on your progress.   I never expected that, and it made this endeavor completely anxiety free for me and the girls.   You exceeded our expectations and I can't seem to say thank you enough. 

Peace, Love & Respect,

Let me begin by saying Jessica is fantastic! Being a guitar player Iíve always admired the sexy pinup decals that you see on guys guitars. However, for me it made no sense to put a sticker of some fictitious or random girl on my guitar. With the guidance and expertise of Jessica I had a blast working with her to create a decal in the likeness of my wife Robin. Following a few emails back and forth I quickly gained trust in her ability to understand the scope of my proposed project; she graciously guided me through the things that made our work together both enjoyable and productive. Working with various photos I provided and our combined pose ideas she was able to recreate the image in my minds eye of the girl I fell in love with more than 30 years ago. During this project it evolved into a trip down memory lane and allowed me to remember what a great girl I married and consider myself fortunate to have pursued this project with Jessica. She is a brilliantly talented young artist who communicates marvelously, and also her ability to respond to challenges and offer creative suggestions during the project showed me that she is a true professional. I was so impressed with the artwork that I had her create me a 13Ē x 19Ē signed print that is absolutely breathtaking; the pictures on the website donít accurately represent the quality of her work. The decal version will also be proudly placed on the special Telecaster guitar Iím building once it is completed. I surprised Robin with the framed photo on our 23rd wedding anniversary and she was so overwhelmed by it she cried; but she absolutely loves it and thinks itís a wonderful representation of her. This is a fantastic process that I enjoyed immensely and would recommend to anyone. Thanks for everything Jessica; youíre the greatest.


Working with Jessica was a fantastic experience and she deserves the highest recommendation possible.  She was extremely professional throughout our communication, yet friendly and willing to take the time to discuss the various steps of the process.  Having never commissioned an artist before, much less for an image of this kind, she was patient with my questions and inspired my utmost confidence.  I was nervous at first about sending a stranger such intimate photos of myself, but found her to be extremely trustworthy and non-judgmental.  I appreciated very much her honesty and willingness to share her artistic opinion when asked to do so.  Jessica did so much more than just put together a painting for me.  I really felt like she put as much effort into my piece as she would have for the beautiful models she works with J  She gave me invaluable pointers on framing as well as suggestions on aspects of the painting when I asked for them, while making sure my own visions were recognized.  Jessica is extremely prompt with communications and generously shares in-progress photos and details about the work she is putting together for you.  The final product she gives you is beyond beautiful and a definite testimony to how talented she really is.  She was a real pleasure to work with and I wish her nothing but success in the future.  I plan to contact her again for another piece!

Just wanted to tell you how much I LOVE the digital painting of my wife! I have always wanted a painting of her and you created exactly what I had in mind. Without knowing you personally and never having met you, I was a little uneasy at first sending pictures of my wife to you, but your professionalism and courtesy made me feel much more comfortable. The fact that you are also a beautiful woman made me feel comfortable and confident that I could trust you with this painting. You have been very responsive to me and were able to meet every bit of detail I requested, without a problem. I looked at several different artists who offer commission work and I selected you because of your obvious talent, your insight into explaining the process to me, and your "can-do" attitude. I received my painting today and I cannot wait to have it framed and hanging in our house. Several friends have seen it and have commented on the level of detail and overall beauty in this painting. I wish you the best Jessica and I hope to bring more business to you!



Just dropping you a line to let you know how much I appreciated working with you.  I commissioned a piece of artwork from you that has left everyone that sees it very impressed. We corresponded with many dozens of e-mails and digital photographs to get the piece just right.  I was impressed with your work ethic and commitment to do an excellent job, which you did. I felt comfortable with you and trusted your professionalism even though we never met and the entire project was communicated by e-mail.
I would highly recommend your work to anyone.
Good luck with future projects,
Joe Arditi

As the Operating Manager of Ruthie's Club, I work with a lot of artists and on a daily basis. Working with Jessica was one of the best experiences I could ask for. She was timely, open to suggestions, and her art was superior. She gave me the opportunity to see the work in progress and to make changes if need be. The finished product was better than I had imagined it would be, and the cost was money well spent. I look forward to working with Jessica again. She's a dream! 


I can't recommend Jessica highly enough. She is not only a wonderfully talented artist, but a consummate professional and a real pleasure to work with. From the first time I contacted her, she was courteous, cheerful and prompt to answer any questions that I had. She's amazingly helpful about walking people through each step of the creative process, explaining how the artwork is progressing and asking whether the client would like to make any adjustments along the way.
Best of all were the snapshots of the work in progress -- it was so exciting to get each email with a new picture of the updates! Right down to the packaging of the finished portrait and the instructions for care that accompanied it, she was attentive to the smallest detail to make sure that everything was perfect.


Jessica's talents have been absolutely vital in the development and promotion of several of our best commercial projects, such as the [magnum rock] program, the MagnumBall-Z animated series, and our Spokesmodel's portfolio.

The images Jessica creates have an impact and a stunning drama in each of them unlike any other. The style and tones of Jessica's work has such a life to it, it's just uncanny how bold and vibrant they are.

We love working with Jessica, and we give her every credit and respect possible. Her talents are phenomenal, and her personality is equally as impressive. And that's no jive.

It was great working with Jessica and the Dougherty Fine Art Portrait Studio! She responded very quickly to our inquiry, and we were able to view mock-ups of the painting, and its progress, by e-mail. The painting was done promptly, and we think its great. It occupies a prominent place in our dining room. We highly recommend Jessica."

I have been dealing with Jessica Dougherty for a couple of years. I own two of her originals, plus some prints. She is, in my opinion, the most exciting up-and-coming artist working in the pin-up genre. In my dealings with her, she has always been prompt, reliable, honest, and personable.
She provides detailed information on proper framing and preservation of your purchase. She even arranged for me to meet the model she'd used for my originals. Besides which, she is beautiful.
What's not to like?

I just wanted to write to let you know what a great experience it was to work with you. It takes a great deal of trust to have someone design artwork for a tattoo which will be with you the rest of your life but you easily and quickly earned my trust. You were great at responding to my many special requests and at suggesting enhancements to make it the work of a lifetime. Everyone who has seen the artwork has been extremely impressed, including the model for the work. You were always quick to reply, courteous, and professional. I really enjoyed working with you and am looking forward to working with you again. I certainly wish you the best of luck with everything.
