I take portrait or any other types of commission. Please let me know what you would like and we can agree on the price and conditions. We can also communicate through Skype or Facebook Messenger.

Generally your picture will be completed within 3-4 weeks, although this will depend on work load and time of year (Christmas orders should be booked as soon as possible). An approximate completion date will be given at the time of ordering. Details required for your order The following details will be required: Name, address, telephone number, size of portrait required, caption, title or name and completion date Any other special requirements .

The finished picture will be a detailed study of your photo. Please Email or post clear photographs. Digital photos offer the highest quality and resolution, ensuring the best possible likeness. Printed photos will be returned with the finished picture, and a photo of the finished picture will be emailed to you. Once approved, the balance payment will be due.

I offer two payment methods, PayPal and bank transfer. I recommend using PayPal, which offers an extra level of security as well as speed of payment. You don’t need to have a PayPal account; credit and debit cards are accepted with this payment method as well.

The painting is carefully packed in a cardboard box with plenty of bubble wrap to protect it and is shipped within 5 business days after receiving your payment, although if I can, I will send it right away or the next day. The painting will always be insured and tracked all the way to your address. The price of shipping will vary a lot, depending on the size and the weight of the package. Prices start from £10 for smaller paintings within the UK, £20 within the EU and £45 for more faraway destinations like the USA or Australia. You can always see your shipping price calculation on the shopping cart page, when you add the painting to cart. If any doubt, please contact me.
