Commission information

If you are interested in a commission from me then please use the contact page for your details or phone or e mail me. I will then phone you to discuss your requirements and give advice. I will send you a quote based on our conversation. Further phone calls and e mails will allow me to obtain good digital photos to work from. (However, if you prefer to send a photo/photos that you already have then that is fine). Once we have agreed on exactly what finished product you want and price I will require a 30% deposit before I begin work which usually takes about 6 weeks to complete.

I will phone or e mail you on my progress and, once finished, I will e mail you a low-resolution photo for your approval. At this stage minor adjustments to the portrait are possible in order for you to be 100% satisfied with the product. (Please note that major adjustments are always made in the initial phone consultations before work starts). On receipt of the remaining balance I will package the portrait in a presentation box with a wax seal that includes a Swarovski ® crystal. The USB stick with the image of the portrait will be included in the box as will a Certificate of Provenance. This presentation box will be packaged carefully and securely in a further box delivered by courier.  It will need to be signed for on receipt.

6 steps

Once you have filled out the form I will call you, at your desired time, to talk about the commission and get as much information from you as possible. This will also give you a chance to ask me any questions. You can phone or email if preferred.
Next i will need photos either by email or post. If more than one photo is sent please indicate which you would prefer to be drawn. I will discuss further with you about the photos and the commission.
A 30% deposited is required before starting the drawing.
Once the deposit is received I can give a start date. It can take 4-6 weeks from start to finish. I will keep you updated during this time.
Once I have finished the drawing I will send you a low resolution image for you to approve. This is also your chance to make minor changes if necessary. Any major changes may be charged.
Next, I will then require the remaining balance. Once this is received I will send you the drawing, beautifully presented and packaged, by courier. I will inform you when it is dispatched. A signature is required.

Lastly, enjoy your beautiful drawing.
