 A large portion of my work is made up of commissioned portraits. I work in a realistic style using a combination of graphite and colored pencil to create an original piece of art, individually tailored for each client.

Initial Consultation
I begin any potential project with an open discussion, answering any questions a client may have and explaining the portrait process further. If the client feels that I am the artist for them, then we proceed with a deposit payment, contract, and discussion of photo reference.

Reference Photos
I work from printed or digital photos. I prefer to photograph your pet myself but if this is not possible I will consider photos provided by the client [All photos are returned].

Completion Times
Drawing times differ according to size and complexity, but most pieces can be finished within a 2-6 week time frame. Progress reports/photos can be sent to the client via email.

Delivery
Whenever possible, I try to deliver drawings directly to clients. When shipping is required, the drawing will be sent via Priority Mail with delivery in 3 business days. This shipping is included in the commission pricing. If faster service is needed, I am more than willing to utilize a courier company, but extra delivery costs will be the responsibility of the client.

Framing
Portraits are not framed, but professional framing can easily be arranged upon request.
