I spend between one and two hours with my sitter, making drawings and chatting. This enables me to study and observe the way he or she moves, sits, smiles. I will then take back up photographs and work in my studio for two to three weeks. Occasionally a second sitting is required.

When almost complete I will invite my client to view the work and give feedback. I will then discuss framing. The cost of a hand-made bespoke frame is included in the price of the commission as is VAT.


No deposit is payable and prices start at £500 for a drawing and £2000 for an oil painting, increasing with size. Payment is requested when my client is entirely satisfied with the completed commission. In the event of a courier being required to deliver outside the UK the cost of this would require to be met by my client
