Animal and People Portraits

How to Order your Commission

If you are looking for a quality bespoke portrait, look no further.  All portraits are created with the utmost care, using professional, archival and lightfast materials, on acid free paper, to ensure they stand the test of time.

At our initial meeting or via email/phone, we will discuss which medium would suit your requirements best. 

If ordering a person portrait, sittings are preferred, but not essential. When an artist studies from life they are able to see the subject without the distortions a camera will always add, which adds another dimension to your portrait. If you are able to do a sitting, please allow minimum of 1hour per sitting, which can take place either at the artists studio, or at your home.  If not local, I can visit you to do some initial sketches and take reference photos.  Travel and accommodation costs will be added to your quote accordingly.   If a sitting is not convenient, I work from photos too! 

It is important that the photo provided is clear to enable me to provide you with a top quality portrait.  If I feel the chosen photo is not clear enough for the purposes of creating an accurate portrait, I will request that another is chosen or perhaps a selection of photos provided to give me a good reference.  

Please note, copyright of the photo reference MUST belong to you or you must provide evidence in writing that express permission has been given by the photographer. 

All prices below are for unframed and unmounted portraits.  However, if you would like a quote including a frame/mount, please let me know.  Any mounts and/or framing, will be provided by J and K Gallery and Framers in Crowborough.  A link to their website is on my 'useful links' page. 

Please see my prices below.

Upon placing your order you will be required to pay a £50 deposit.  Please see the 'Terms and Conditions' section on this website for more details.
