Custom Portrait commissions start at $300.  Prints can be purchased at a low-cost, and price will vary based on size.  Please contact me if interested.

See below for custom prices by specific size.

All portraits are drawn in graphite on archival quality hot press watercolor paper.  Charcoal and conte portraits available upon request.

I will ship anywhere in the world - charges for shipping and handling are separate, and will vary by region.



Prices do not include framing or shipping, and are listed in US dollars.  Each drawing will be mounted in a standard black or white mat with the below final dimensions. Custom sizes available, and will be priced separately.

All portrait commissions must be paid at the time of the order.

I will send out final photos prior to shipping the portrait, to ensure you are satisfied with the final product.  No refunds are available once work has begun, but if you need to cancel a commission, please contact me within five days from the time of the order.  I will refund your full payment, assuming the commission has not been started.



I take great care when shipping portraits to ensure all artwork is protected and secure, and not at risk of bending or being damaged in shipment.  All portraits are insured and shipped via FedEx.
The cost for shipping and handling varies, depending on the size of the artwork.   International shipping is available, and will be quoted upon request.  
If for any reason a portrait is damaged in shipping, please contact me immediately and I will replace the portrait at no charge, once the original portrait is returned.  Timeline for replacement will vary.
