Selected Portrait Commissions


My process for creating a portrait is client focused. I take great care and joy in getting to know my clients and subjects so that the outcome exceeds expectations. After discussing options on the phone, we meet in person at least once to get to know one another and go over details such as mood, lighting, clothing, scale, placement and setting. I will then set up a time and place to meet with the subject and take a series of reference photographs, sketches and color studies. Depending on the time my subject has to sit I will work from photographs, from life, or some combination of the two. Before I begin I make sure that we are all on the same page and all questions have been answered. I then set to painting using only the best possible materials on the market. I will check in with my client several times during the process to give updates on my progress. Once the work is complete (times range from one to three months) I will either deliver the piece to my client or take it to a frame shop for framing. I'm happy to help with this part of the process as well. I'm excited to meet my next client and I hope that is you!

For prices and more details on my method  send me an email at I will be glad to chat with you about what you are looking for and how, together, we can make a meaningful work of art that will last many lifetimes.
