A hand drawn Portrait is a priceless work of Art that aims to capture the essence, emotion and unique character of the Subject. It is a unique heirloom to be passed down through the generations. 

Commissioning a high quality work of art is an experience to savor and the pleasure of owning an original drawing far outlasts the experience of its creation.



Commissioning a Portrait
I work from live sittings when possible and digital photographs. If you want to provide a photo for consideration. email me a high quality scanned image at:

If you are commissioning a posthumous portrait you can submit your images for review. I will assess the quality of the photos and let you know what your  options are.



1. During our first discussion we will 

  • Go over the process of painting the portrait.

  • Talk about the composition of the portrait and the best angle to convey the subject and their personality.

  • Consider lighting and clothing choices.

2. We arrange a studio sitting and photo shoot

  • During the scheduled sitting of 2 hours, I will sketch the sitter and take reference photos.

  • Photos will be reviewed with the client for feedback.

  • The drawing will be completed within 3-4 weeks

3. Completion and Delivery

  • Once the portrait is finished I will invite you to the studio for a viewing and collection or send a photograph of the painting to you for approval before shipping

  • Local clients are welcome to come to the studio to pick up the finished drawing and be present for the signing.

  • Charcoal drawings will be sprayed with fixative before shipping.

  • For US residents shipping is included. And will be mailed via FedEx Ground.
