Custom Portraits

Custom Portraits

I accept commissions on approval – send me your photos and I’ll be happy to talk with you about your project. I generally create pictures in graphite and pastel, depending on the subject. I usually work from photos, and I can also develop “conglomerate” pictures, a combination of one or more photos, which can be particularly useful for memorials and busy fur-people who do not always pose together!

Most work is done in pastel on museum-quality pastel paper – other surfaces are available upon request. Custom pieces can be done in the size of your choice, usually beginning at 8″ x 10″ and including sizes as large as 18″ x 24″. Prices for 2020 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, a basic mat, 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.
