How Does This WOrk?

  • Choose three reference images
    Great references make for great portraits!

    Before you request a quote, find three (3) reference photos of your subject. If you don't have three (3) reference photos, that's okay, sometimes that happens and we'll figure things out. If you have more than three (3), that's fine too!

    I will never share or publish any references, and will delete references once the project is completed upon request.

  • Is that really the portrait you want?
    Really, this is important.

    Do you just want a head? A full length portrait, 3/4 with hands? 

    Remember that the price chart above is merely a rough estimate of cost, since prices are calculated on size and estimated working time. A Custom Portrait doesn't always cost more than a Fancy Portrait, and a Fancy Portrait doesn't always cost less than a Custom. 

    If you're not sure which of these is right for you, shoot me an email at and I'll get back with you as soon as possible.

  • Request a quote
    "I'd like to buy a clue..."

    Once you've decided on what portrait you want and you've gathered your references, send me an email at In your email please let me know which portrait you'd like; if you're choosing a "Custom" portrait, please mention how many subjects and your desired dimensions so I can give you an accurate quote. Don't forget to attach your reference photos!

    From here you'll receive regular updates on your portrait. Most portraits are done within a single week, but others may take a little more time. Regular communication between me and you ensures that you get a beautiful piece that you'll cherish for years to come.
