How Do I Commission a Portrait?

First, get in touch with your portrait idea along with some photos of the subject/s (the best quality you have).
Send these to:

Choose a Medium

Medium is the type of materials I'll use to create your artwork. I can work in:

Graphite (Pencil)

Chalk Pastel / Charcoal
Oil Paint

We can chat about which medium will work well for your chosen subject and scale of artwork, but ultimately it's your choice!

Your Quote

I'll get back to you with a quote based on your chosen subject matter, media and scale of artwork. I'll also let you know how long the artwork will take. If you'd like to proceed, I'll send an invoice for 50% of the total quote to be paid up front. 

As soon as this has been received, I'll get started on your artwork.

Your Completed Artwork

As soon as I've completed your artwork, I'll email over a photograph for your approval. Once you're happy with this, I'll send an invoice for the remaining 50% and your delivery charge. When I've received this in full, your artwork will be dispatched to you.


The price of your artwork depends on your chosen medium, subject matter and size. The table below is based on a single subject portrait and is for guide purposes only.

If you would like your artwork to be out-with these sizes or contain more than one subject, drop me an email and I can get back to you with a more accurate quote.


Time is also dependent on your chosen medium, subject matter and size.
Commissions can range from 1 week to a couple of months, so please drop me an email and I can get back to you with a more accurate quote.


I'll pack your artwork carefully for delivery and I always use a tracked/ signed for and insured service.

I can ship artworks worldwide, as well as providing a door-to-door hand delivery service for larger pieces to addresses in Mainland UK.


I can frame/ canvas-mount pieces on completion. If you're interested in this- please let me know and I can include this in your quote.

I can supply a small selection of frame mouldings and inner mounts which you are free to choose from.
