Commissions and Fees

I work from my studio in Arkansas whenever possible. Photographs can be used as a supplement when sittings are not convenient although I prefer to meet the subject for initial studies. I am happy to suggest appropriate sizes for the location and the desired intent.

My procedure is to develope a full scale drawing of the subject including background elements. The drawing is discussed with the client and suggestions are noted in order to have all parties satisfied before committing to canvas.

Often the drawing is available for purchase as well. Please ask about this possibility when scheduling your portrait.
