A commissioned work of art is something unique and special providing so much joy and lasting memories. If you are considering commissioning a piece of art please read the information below to guide you through the process and then feel free to contact me with your requirements.
I use professional high quality brand materials to ensure that your portrait will last you a lifetime.
Each portrait is unique, and prices may vary dependent on your own requirements. I appreciate that the price is a big consideration, so I have included a pricing guide below. Feel free to get in touch with your ideas, including budget and size and we can work what would suit you.
*Please note that these prices do not include mounting or framing of the work. Framing can be arranged at an additional cost if the client is local and the work can be collected or hand delivered, otherwise I will not send framed work in the mail.
I require good quality, clear, digital photographs. Please see the following as a guide:
Ensure the photograph is well-lit, preferably in natural daylight.
The subject must be large in the frame.
An interesting angle or expression makes for a more unique portrait and shows their character.
Try to use an original photo rather than download from social media as they compress the original file size.
For copyright reasons, only send photos you have taken yourself or have permission to use.
My style is very detailed and based on realism. Please be aware that I will not be able to create highly detailed portraits from unclear photos. I reserve the right to decline a commission if the reference material is not suitable.
POSTAGE AND PACKAGING
UK Orders: Posting and packaging is an additional cost, usually £10 as standard but can vary dependent on the size of the work. All artwork is placed in an acid free acetate envelope with backing board. For delivery by mail, items are securely packaged with bubble wrap in a strong cardboard envelope or box. Items will be sent via ROYAL MAIL 24hr recorded delivery.
Free collection and delivery are available for those locally based.
For commissions, I charge 50% non-refundable deposit on acceptance, with the remaining balance payable on completion prior to dispatch. I will keep you updated throughout the process and send you a photo of the drawing to ensure you are happy with the final work before accepting final payment.
Payment is via bank transfer, PayPal, or cash (on collection only).

You agree to pay an initial 50% deposit before the work starts.
You understand that changing the details agreed for your commission may result in additional cost which you must pay for.
You agree to pay the balance of the cost within 7 days of request.
I reserve all rights to the image of the finished work. The finished work may be used by the client for display and personal enjoyment only.
No prints or copies shall be made, or profit gained in any way from the finished artwork by the client, without express written permission of the artist.
In the event of non-payment, I may use the artwork as I wish.
I retain the rights to use the image for advertising services, through printed adverts and digital/social media.
