Please use the form below if you are interested in getting a commissioned portrait. There are few commissioned portrait spots available each year so we suggest you contact us ahead of time to ensure your artwork gets done for when you need it most. The drawing’s quality depends tremendously on the reference photo so it is very important to provide the best reference photos you can.

1. The first step to realizing your artistic vision through the form. Beside your contact info please include:

  • The photo reference you intend to get painted. Send as many as you’d like.
  • Your vision for the drawing:
    Write some details about your photo subject and what would you like to see created from this reference.
    Is there any specific size of the drawing you intend to have?
    Is this piece meant for a specific event, so we can set up a deadline?

2. Once your request is reviewed you will receive response and all necessary information regarding reference photo, price and deadline. If everything works well for you, the process will continue in the following way:

  • A deposit will be sent via wire transfer or Paypal. Once the deposit is received, this secures your position. If the artist is not currently drawing a previous commission, he will start working on the project immediately.
  • Once the drawing is complete, I will take a photo for your approval. Once the drawing is accepted, it will pre prepared to be sent and the remainder of the payment will be due.
  • Once the final payment arrives, I ship everything without framing.

How long does it take?

I like to give myself 2-3 weeks but depending on the technique it may be less. Plus time for shipping.


Prices vary depending on complexity, these are guidelines for single portraits (head and shoulders) on simple backgrounds. I will respond for each request.
I offer several sizes to choose from (24×30 cm, A3 etc and custom) but I generally don’t work larger than life size. Here are some standard rates but if you have any special requests just send a note.

  • Single portraits in graphite – 500$ head and shoulders
  • Single portraits in pastels – 400$ head and shoulders
  • Pet portraits in graphite or pastels – 350$
