Commissioning A Portrait

I offer a free no-obligation quote so please do not hesitate to contact me on any of my social media platforms or through the contact button.

I require a 50% non-refundable deposit when booking with the balance due upon completion.

To confirm your booking, I will also need the photographs you wish for me to draw along with your deposit.

I work with Clairefontaine white or dark grey Pastelmat paper, I can offer you advice on which colour I think will best suit your drawing.

I work from photographs and can help you choose a photograph which would be best suitable to convert to an artwork. Your photo will be my reference to which I will use to try to capture the memory and likeness, I do not know what your pet looks like, other than what the photo tells me, so please keep this in mind, if you have a lower quality photo, I will only be able to draw what I see.

Price List

Prices are based on head and shoulders only.

All drawings come unmounted and unframed.

I can arrange for your drawing to be professionally framed and mounted but this will incur an additional cost.

If you would like your picture to be mounted and framed, please inform me of your requirements at the booking stage.

Postage charge is an additional £10.00 and is sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery.
