Prices start from £680 - please contact me for a full price list.
The first step would be to get in touch, using the contact form. Please leave a description as to what size and medium you are interested in, how many subjects in question and where you are based. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions.
Once we have confirmed the size (please scroll to the bottom of the page for advice on choosing your size) and medium, I will then send you a deposit invoice which (once paid) will confirm the commission and put you on the waiting list. The deposit is non-refundable.
Deposit paid, we can now discuss a date as to when you can visit me at my home / studio, where I will photograph your child / pet / loved one, for me to work from. If you prefer the shots to be done at your home (advisable so the subject is in their own and familiar environment which will produce the most natural shots) then my photographer, Hannah Milsom (a professional portrait photographer) will visit you for the shoot (included in the cost) and I will work from these photo's.
The portrait(s) will be completed within 1-6 months of enquiring - depending on where you are on my waiting list. However, If you have a specific date in mind, such as a birthday or anniversary, then I will endeavour to get it completed on time.
The *unframed pencil and pastel portraits will be delivered free (as part of the cost) and will come mounted and protected.
I get booked up rather quickly, so if you have a particular date that you'd like the portrait(s) to be completed / delivered then do contact me as soon as possible.
Should you require advice regarding framing, I am happy to assist. For a fee, I can also organise the framing, if required. The framing, once completed will be payable by the client, as well as courier charges if you should want the portrait(s) delivered. I will agree a maximum framing budget with the client prior to organising and then take the portraits to my local framer - 'Bespoke Framing, Penn'. Do ask if you'd like to see some examples of my work framed by my wonderful framer and I can send you some photo's via email.
Please note, the sizes are based on the aperture / window size of the mount - with the portrait sitting within this space.
The image above shows true scale of the 4 different sizes of portraits, mounted (the white border) and framed on a wall. The photo below is a true image of mounted and framed 8 x 10' portraits - I love the way the client arranged these. And the image, below right, shows 10 x 12' pencil portraits in situ in a line in a hallway, which I think looks wonderful!
12 x 14' is the largest and wonderful if hanging 1 or 2 alongside each other on a large wall space. The portrait will become a statement piece within the room you choose to hang it. This size also allows me, the artist to apply a lot more detail, especially in the eyes!
10 x 12' is the standard size (most popular!) which is approx. an oversized A4. This is a great size if you want the portrait(s) to be noticed from a further distance in a room but also not too large as to have to stand back. The portrait is life-size to the child / subject facial proportions.
8 x 10' is a little under A4 in height. This is a lovely size if you are to hang 3+ portraits together in a line on its own wall. Or amongst other art works if commissioning 1+.
6 x 8' (approx. A5) is a miniature portrait and works beautifully if hanging amongst other collections of small art works.
