Commissioning a portrait is an exciting and important decision. The end result is not only a work of art that neither artist nor patron could have envisioned alone, but it is also an heirloom that will be cherished for many decades to come. I approach each portrait with attention to representation, craft, and high-quality materials.
Process and What to Expect
To start, we’ll have a conversation about the details. Things to guide our conversation will be: How you envision the portrait, who will be the subject, what they will be wearing, how big it will be, where it will hang, how many sittings are needed, how long the painting will take to complete, and the price. I will put all the details in a contract which we will both sign. 50% is due upon the signing of the contract. The end balance is due upon completion and your satisfaction with the painting.
Portrait paintings (in watercolor or oil), head and shoulders, start at $800
Portrait drawings (in graphite or charcoal), head and shoulders, start at $300
Pricing does not include framing, which is available for an additional fee.
