You may pay for the artwork using a check or money order. 50% + materials up front and 50% upon delivery. No work will be shipped until personal checks and money orders are cleared at each stage of the portrait painting.


The project will begin with the client emailing the artist with a rough idea of the project, the subject matter and a timeline. Please keep in mind the artist is usually booked up six months in advance though special arrangements can be made at anytime to have a portrait request specially made. The artist will then have a phone consultation with the client and a high-resolution digital photograph (300 dpi - print quality) or physical photographs will be requested from the client. After receiving the photo reference the artist will approve or provide the client with a sketch if necessary. Upon approval by the client, the artist will email or send a contract to the client. A signed contract and a non-refundable deposit of 50% will be required to begin the project. Lastly:

  • in the case of international requests and domestic requests where shipping is required the client will receive a digital photo prior to shipping and at that time the remaining 50% balance is due.
  • for domestic orders where the client will be picking up the painting in person, the remaining 50% is due upon pick up.


Group portraits - the first figure is full price, each additional figure is 1/3 less than full price.


Travel expenses and the cost of crating and shipping are not included in the contract, and are the responsibility of the client. All arrangements falling under this category will be discussed before the portrait if it is an issue and will be included in the contract before initiating the portrait. Framing is also the responsibility of the client. If the client needs a reference for a framer one can be provided by request.
