  • Katie, Bo & Liza 46x46


    McWilliams’ uncommon rapport with children stems from her institutional experience with Elementary Education. She’s able to connect with children at their level, coaxing them into letting their personality show. The result is an image that’s uniquely representative of the child, capturing not only their likeness but their essence and disposition.

    Adults and Teens

    McWilliams’ work with adults and teens captures the spirit of a mature individual in a pose or setting that exemplifies them. From formal stances and sophisticated attire, to lovingly candid moments, each person and moment is illustrated with care. The impressionistic realism of each portrait creates a timeless quality that’s true to form, yet stylistically nuanced.
