Commission an original realistic portrait in charcoal, pencil, or pastels, from your favorite photographs! Capture a memory or make a great gift. I will work with you to create the perfect portrait. You can choose the size, number of subjects, type of media, and background paper colors.

Please contact me for pricing on portraits with multiple subjects.

I create a drawing from the photograph you provide. A photo can make or break the portrait. A lot of photos are great, but it takes certain qualities to make a portrait. The perfect photo will be a close up with good lighting, contrast, and resolution. The better the photo, the better the drawing. If you are unsure if your photograph will transfer well into a portrait, please feel free to send me your photos for consideration. Sending multiple photos helps, for it gives me an idea of the subject's looks and personality.

Once you select the photograph, I will create a custom listing for a 50% deposit. Please make a payment and I will begin drawing. As soon as the portrait is ready, I will send you a digital image for your approval. If there is anything you would like me to add or change, I would be happy to do so at that time. After your final approval I will apply fixative, package the work professionally, and ship it by insured Priority Mail. The delivery usually takes 2-3 days depending on your location. Prior to shipping, I will set up a custom listing for the remainder of the commission.

Thank you for looking!
