Commissions

Portraits are a fabulous, lasting and special way to celebrate a person or animal.
I can work from photographs, and can advise what type of picture works best. I am also happy to visit you to take photographs and sketches and talk to you before starting work.

If you need advice about reference photos, I’ve written a post about good reference photos for portraits that I hope will help you and if you’d like to find out more please get in touch using the form below.
