Commissions - Pencil Portrait

Interested in commissioning a pencil portrait of your children or pets? Wonderful! I am thrilled to work with you. Please follow the following steps when requesting a commissioned portrait:

  1. Read through the FAQs. If you have any questions that you don't see answered, please don't hesitate to ask.

  2. Contact me here. Please allow 24 hours for me to respond.

  3. Include your name, your request, and a preferred size. Currently, I offer pencil portraits in the following sizes: 

    • 5" x 7" (matted for an 8" x 10" frame)​

    • 8" x 10" (matted for an 11" x 14" frame)

    • 11" x 14" (matted for a 16" x 20" frame)

    • 12" x 18" (matted for an 18" x 24" frame)

  4. If you are interested in another size, please don't hesitate to ask. I will be happy to work something out with you. ​

  5. Portraits are currently only drawn in graphite (pencil). I hope to add colored pencils by the end of 2020.

  6. Once I receive your e-mail, I will reach out and we will discuss your options based on the reference pictures you have available.

  7. Once a photo as been selected, I will send you a contract for you to sign and send back to me. The contract is simply to make sure that there are no surprises during the portrait process.

  8. A deposit of 50% of the total cost of the portrait will be due before I can begin to create your portrait. This will also ensure your spot in line. 

  9. Commissions take approximately 4-6 weeks to complete depending on my schedule. Portraits are completed on a first-come-first-serve basis from when the deposit is received. If you need something by a particular date, please let me know so we can make the appropriate arrangements.
