Frequently Asked Questions


What media do you work in? My preferred mediums are graphite, colored pencil, pastel, arylic, and watercolor.

What sizes do you offer? I offer all sizes, including special requests, although the smallest I recommend for portraits is 5X7.

How does commissioning a portrait work? When you contact me either using the form to the right or other method, you will be able to choose size, medium, and other details, and we will go over pricing, process times, and payment options.

What do I receive with a commissioned order? All drawings and paintings are designed according to your requests, reference photos, and color choices. If desired, you can receive a photo of the work before it is mailed, so you can make sure it’s how you want it. Free revisions for small changes are included in the price, although large revisions (for example, complete redesigns or color changes) - if no fault of the artist - may require additional payment.

What is the payment process?
All commissioned work requires either a full, upfront payment or a 50% down payment upfront of the total to cover material costs and as a deposit. For large projects, such as large paintings and illustration packages, a contract will be signed that outlines further details.

How long do commissioned paintings take? Custom drawings and paintings take 2-6 weeks depending on the waiting list. Please contact me with adequate time in advance of the deadline and note when it is needed.
