Commissions are done in oil on a smooth linen canvas (suited for detail) which is hand stretched in the studio. This allows for various sizes and compositions which is often helpful in capturing the personality of the subject.   While I prefer to take my own photographs, I can easily work from yours (if possible, please talk to me first for pointers).  A local photo shoot is included at no extra charge.  I rely heavily on your input as to the photo which best represents the subject's personality.
    

Prices vary with size, number of subjects, complexity and background.  Animal portraits begin at $1,000 with each additional subject usually being about 50% more.  A firm quote will be given after discussing the exact type of portrait you would like to have.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
