Portraits are a unique, meaningful and moving way to memorialize a pet, a person, or a moment. They make an impressive gift that’s sure to provoke smiles, laughs, and sometimes even tears.
Send me a photo, or a few, via email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will discuss your custom artwork. I offer portraits in common frame sizes, but can always accommodate different measurement requests. All of my portraits are created using coloured pencils and a bit of marker and ink. They take anywhere from hours to weeks to complete, depending on detail and commission volumes at the time. I can create a collage portrait from several photos, which means I can add people who were missing for family photos, or put uncooperative fur babies into a group setting. So don’t worry if Uncle Bob blinked or Max ran after the cat. I can fix it.
When choosing photos, be sure they’re clear and bright. I need good quality photos in order to produce realistic and detailed portraits. I also draw exactly what I see, so be sure to let me know if you would like something changed or removed.
Pricing is for a portrait with one subject. Portraits with backgrounds, multiple subjects, or complicated adjustments are subject to additional charges.

I require a 50% deposit to begin your portrait. Once complete, I’ll send you a preview. At this point, minor adjustments may be made.
