Portrait Drawings

Beautiful hand drawn portraits that are one of a kind and completely personalized

I have been drawing portraits all my life, and I honestly think I'll still be drawing when I'm 90. I draw portraits for clients all over the world, transforming an idea into something beautiful. I combine multiple photographs to create family portraits after a loved one has passed away, giving my clients a gift that otherwise would have only existed in their imagination. I feel like the luckiest person in the world to do what I do.

Portrait drawings make the perfect sentimental gift for family and friends, it can also be a stunning centerpiece in any home. Artwork like this is special, drawn with care, and will be treasured by your family for generations. Commissioning a hand drawn portrait is incredibly easy. It's as simple as emailing me your chosen photo, and I draw your portrait, and mail it right back to you! My busiest time of the year is the months leading up to Christmas, so early bookings are essential.

I am incredibly passionate about portrait drawing. I have been drawing my entire life, and I have loved every portrait I have drawn. I put my heart and soul into my work, and I hope that it shows. I have spent countless years perfecting my craft, and to this day I believe I am still learning, and striving to be better and do better with every new drawing I create. It is so incredibly important to me to deliver not only premium quality art, but also an amazing service. The drawings I create for my clients are one of a kind, drawn with love, and are irreplaceable. This means that they quickly become a most treasured family heirloom. 
When drawing a portrait from a photograph, detail is everything. If a photograph does not contain enough detail I will request additional reference photos to help fill in the gaps. Drawing from a detailed drawing from a very low resolution or unclear photo is near impossible, so for that reason I don't accept them the majority of the time.

PRICES1

All prices are standard, however small increases may occur if the commission is deemed difficult, ie: poor reference photo, difficult fur type, heavy wrinkles, hands and detailed clothing patterns. 

All drawings are sized to fit standard frame sizes. The 20x24 inch can be drawn larger (up to 20 x 28") if requested, however you may need to get a custom size frame built for it, and the price will also be adjusted for the added work involved.
