A hand drawn Portrait is a priceless work of Art that aims to capture the essence, emotion and unique character of the Subject. A Portrait of a loved one is an 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.  It is there to inspire us and turn our minds toward beauty and give our hearts a feeling of joy.



      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.

      • Go over the process of painting the portrait.
