Commissioning a portrait

Simply follow these steps:

  • Get in touch. I'd love to discuss your ideas and answer any questions you might have.

  • Send me some photographs. I will need a sharp, digital photograph to work from. Please feel free to send as many as you like for me to look at, preferably by email. We can then discuss which would be suitable.

​I draw from sharp digital photographs, preferably taken with a point and shoot/ DSLR camera. 

Sharp, clear cellphone photographs are also suitable. Photographs taken outdoors in natural light with no harsh shadows (not in direct sunlight), work best.

  • Decide on the size of your drawing.  Please view the table below:

Should you need your portrait by a certain date, please mention it when ordering and I will let you know if it would be possible. Please order well in advance for special holidays.


It is fantastic! You have a wonderful gift! So so beautiful!
