Precious Smiles

Portraits by Emmanuel Nim

Portraits are paintings, photographs, sculptures, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person according to Wikipedia. Precious Smiles Portrait Series are not only impression of a person by an artist, but an impression of my Family by an international renowned artist, Emmanuel Nim.

Emmanuel Nim has completed the Precious Smiles Portrait Series of our family. He started with the portrait of my wife, Stephanie Yvette, back in April 2015. At the beginning of this year 2016, and in just one day, he completed the rest of the portrait series for me, my son, Jae Jewel and my daughter, Joshua Yvette. A very good start for the Year 2016.

Armed with his palette knife, brush and acrylic paints, Emmanuel Nim magically transformed an empty canvass into portraits filled with individual character and personality. He has captured not only our precious smiles but also the persona.

Emmanuel Nim has mastered painting portraits and has done portraits of well known personalities. He demonstrates his craft through on-the-spot portrait paintings. What truly amazed us is his unique style of the portraits. These are not traditional portraits but with strokes of palette knife for his finishing touches.

We would also like to share the magic and artistic touch of the figurative artist. We captured the portrait session in a time lapse video.



Also featured are the videos of the portrait session of Jae Jewel and Joshua Yvette.




Macuha Art Gallery has featured Emmanuel Nim and dedicated its pages to promote the artist and his art works. Please visit his Page at To learn more about Emmanuel Nim’s background, accomplishments and awards, please visit his Profile page at
