Custom Art

I accept commissions on approval – send me your photos and I’ll be happy to talk with you about what is possible. I generally create pictures in graphite and chalk, although I have also done work in oil pencil and watercolor on occasion, depending on the subject. I love doing photo re-creation, and I can also develop “conglomerate” pictures – a combination of one or more photos, particularly useful for several busy children who do not always pose well together!

Most work is done in pastel on high rag, museum quality colored paper. Custom pieces are done in the size of your choice, usually beginning at 8″ x 10″ and including sizes as large as 18″ x 24″. I can trim a custom piece to a specific size if necessary, and I am happy to create larger or smaller pieces as desired. Prices for 2019 pieces begin at $150 US. (Price may vary depending on finished size and background material – I will give you a final quote when I receive your photo(s).)

All my work is satisfaction guaranteed – your final payment will be made when you are satisfied with the finished project. A $25 refundable deposit is required for most pieces before work begins. Custom portraits include the drawing itself and free shipping in the US. You may also request a full-size digital scan of the drawing, and I can include a Greeting card or Christmas card design for a small fee.
