Information on how to order your own personalized portrait

Portraits are great gift ideas. Portraits were among the first thing I started drawing, usually of Superman. Over time, I honed my craft to give the finished product an excellent and realistic representation from a photo.  I love illustrating pets, family members or friends in a realistic fashion. My process begins with a provided picture or photo. From there I will preserve your memories on acid free paper. When I finish a pencil drawing I spray a coat of fixative to prevent smearing, preserve the artwork, and to bring out rich detail in the finished piece.

You can attach a picture from my contact page on this website or send it via email. We can even make arrangements and have photos sent by mail if necessary. It is important when choosing a picture that it is clean and detailed. If you can see the whites in the eyes, the picture usually has enough detail for me to draw it. If you have any other questions, you can contact me at the bottom of the page.

There are a few sizes to choose from and all pictures come with a mat that is sized to fit standard frames. Payment is not due until the work is completed and  you are completely satisfied.  Copies can be made for an extra charge. Prices are available  below.
