Commission Information

"Jack" - colored pencil 11x14

 I will accept commissioned artwork and am happy to draw human or pet portraits!  I recognize that the portraits are a significant investment, but I can guarantee that you will be happy with them for years to come!  


Since my goal is to capture the details and personality of my subject, my work can take as much as 40 to 100 hours to complete.  Please expect at least 4 weeks for completion and even up to 8 weeks for the larger sizes.  If you have a specific deadline, please plan accordingly.

These are the most popular sizes.  For commissions, I price by the square inch, so if you have a different size in mind, just ask and I will give you a quote.  These prices are for a standard portrait with a simple background.  If a more complex piece is requested, there may be extra charges.  These prices do not include framing or shipping.  I can send you a shipping quote with your zip code.  I accept money orders, cashier's checks, or Paypal.  Payment plans are available.   
"Courtney" - Colored Pencil 11x14

Because of the realistic nature of my work, I need to work from good quality photos.  The subject should be large and clear.  The more detail I can see, the better the drawing will be!  Pick your favorite photos and I will let you know which ones will be suitable for drawing.  


Once a size is agreed upon and the reference image is picked, a 50% nonrefundable deposit is required before I will start work on your project.  I will send you periodic updates on the progress.  After completion, a final update will be sent for your approval and then the balance will be due before delivery is made.  All work is done on acid-free paper that will not fade or yellow.  The finished work is sprayed with a fixative to prevent smudging.  All pieces that need to be shipped will be wrapped and crated to prevent damage during shipping and will be insured.


If you are interested in commissioning a piece, please call me or send a message on my contact page.  I will need to know what medium you would like (pencil or colored pencil), the size, and photos you may want to work with.  Thanks!
