A beautiful portrait makes a lovely keep-sake, of your children, grandchildren, your spouse or a family member, or perhaps one of yourself. It can be a lovely surprise for a friend or relative. Get your own pet painted, or surprise a friend with a portrait of his or her dog or cat. Portraits also make wonderful original gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, or any other special occasion.

I usually work from photographs. These can be sent by email or post. For me it is the most practical and economical way to work. Often it is not possible for a client to visit or for me to visit them, therefore photographs are the only practical alternative. As each portrait takes a good number of hours to complete there is minimal pressure on either side. However, if at all possible I will get my client to sit for me for sketches as that helps with my overall composition and will of course improve the drawing a great deal, but this depends on where you live. I work hard to get a realistic end result and I try to make sure that my client is truly satisfied. I am confident in saying that the likeness I produce is excellent and I can assure you of the highest quality.

I am currently accepting commissions with no less than two months lead time, but this can vary subject to my workload at the time you place the order.

I am also offering PORTRAIT GIFT VOUCHERS as an alternative.
