I am available for oil or charcoal portraits of people and pets. Alternatively, if you would like another subject commissioned such as a painting of your house or garden, a still life or a favourite photograph, please contact me to discuss this further.
For portraits of adults I work from life with a series of sittings at the studio (usually around 5 sessions of 3 hours). I may also take reference photographs to finish the work.
With pets and children I am happy to work from photographs due to the practical difficulties of keeping still. We can take photographs here at the studio or we can travel to your home to take photographs if you are not too far away from us (there will be an additional cost for this). Alternatively I can guide you through the process of selecting/taking a suitable photograph and help you to choose one that will make a beautiful painting.
We are also able to supply beautiful handmade frames to complement your painting.
Availability and prices for commissions on request. Please contact me.
