Custom Canvas Painting

Turn any idea or design into a hand-painted, custom canvas. Also, personalize any existing canvas by adding your initials or a design element. Our canvas painter, Jim Boyle, is a graduate of the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He is an accomplished artist who previously worked as an illustrator. Jim trained with Trubey Walker of Trubey Designs.

Jim very much enjoys the challenge of working with Rittenhouse Needlepoint customers to make their dreams a reality and we are lucky to have him. Some of Jim’s custom designs as well as designs that he has developed for sale exclusively at Rittenhouse Needlepoint are featured below. Although Jim’s line of canvas designs is constantly growing, his workspace seems to be getting smaller and smaller!

Stop by the store and we would be happy to introduce you to Jim and show you some of his work.

If you are interested in having Jim paint a custom canvas for you, e-mail him at or stop by the shop Tuesday through Saturday 10 am - 6 pm.

After discussing your project to get an idea of what you want, Jim will sketch a design for your approval. Once you approve the design, Jim will estimate the number of hours that your project will take him to paint. Custom canvas painting is done by the hour ($30/hour, minimum = 1 hour). A deposit of 50% is required for work to begin and custom work is normally completed in three to four weeks.
