~ C O M M I S S I O N S ~
Commissioning a portrait can often be a very exciting and once in a lifetime opportunity,
so I aim to make the process as enjoyable an experience for you as possible,
and that means a personal and individual service.
Please email me in the first instance using the Contact link above for an informal discussion
about the kind of portrait you would like.
Due to their bespoke nature, portraits are priced on an individual basis.
Each one is a hand drawn, one-of-kind creation, and I take as much time as necessary to complete your portrait.
Commissions can be requested in black and white, sepia or full colour.
Any size from 6 x 4 to wall size can be requested ~ mounting and framing can also be requested.

In return for your investment in my work, I use only high quality, branded, ethically sourced and manufactured mediums,
on acid free stock, meaning your investment in an original artwork will not discolour or fade, and
is guaranteed to last a minimum of 75 years, when placed out of direct sunlight.

I work from photographs so commissions are accepted worldwide.

If you are local to the Lincolnshire area, photography of the subject and any content is an option, but if not,
photographs must be clear in order for me to achieve sufficient content.
Due to my style being one of detail, close up shots of the face in particular are essential and at least 300dpi.
Please feel free to send me as many photographs as you would like,
though if you are not sure the ones you have will be suitable,
please feel free to send them to me with no obligation and I'll be happy to take a look at them
and advise you on what I can do ~ often times a smaller artwork can be achieved,
or adaptations to the composition can be considered.
For portraits featuring multiple subjects, it isn't necessary to have all of the subjects photographed together,
as I can work from separate photographs.
Sketches and mock ups of your portrait are created for your approval prior to the actual painting.
All portraits include an Artist Signed Certificate of Authenticity.
All details of your enquiry and potential commission, including contact details and address, remain strictly confidential
and will not be revealed, shared or forwarded to any third parties.
On delivery of your requested quotation, you will not receive any further emails from me,
including marketing or promotional offers for future commissions.
Only the images you allow me to share on my Facebook and website, including progress shots, will be used
and you will be able to establish these options during the commission process.
