If you are considering commissioning a piece of work please read the following information as a guide to what to expect.
I offer a limited number of bookings for commissions during a year, therefore please contact me with as much notice as possible to ensure availability .
Upon enquiry and reviewing your requirements I will send you a quote, which is effective for 3 months.
If you decide to proceed, I require a 50% non-refundable deposit to secure your booking via bank transfer or Paypal. The remaining balance will be due on completion of the finished work.
I use professional high quality brand materials to ensure that your portrait will last you a life time.
FULLY BOOKED UNTIL LATE AUGUST. FROM THEN WILL BE ACCEPTING COMMISSIONS FOR CHRISTMAS DEADLINES.
Prices for commissioned work are based on individual requirements and you will receive a bespoke quote upon enquiry.
As a rough guide, prices start from:
A4/ 8.27x11.69"/ 21x29.7cm £180
Prices are based on one head and shoulders, add 20% for a double portrait.
Mounting and framing is not included in the above price but can be organised, for an additional cost, for work that is collected or delivered locally.
Prices are subject to ongoing review and are updated throughout the year.
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
Posting and packaging is an additional cost, 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 recorded delivery (tracked and signed for).
Free collection and delivery are available for those locally based.
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.
I retain the rights to use the image for advertising services, through printed adverts and digital/social media. If you do not wish for me to share updates on social media while creating your portrait and the finished portrait if it's for a surprise/special occasion, please mention on booking and message to let me know when it has been gifted
