I’ve done countless children’s portraits but love drawing adults too. My aim is to capture both the likeness and the individual character of my subject. (Click on any portrait below to see it with the original photo.)
I do my portraits from photos, either taken by me or supplied by the client. I say honestly if I don’t think an image will work as a portrait, and can advise on how to take more suitable ones. Selecting the perfect reference photo is crucial to the success of the finished artwork.
For a timeless effect that looks at home in any setting, I usually work in graphite pencil, though I’m happy to discuss other media and styles.
An extra service I offer is premium-quality copies (giclée prints) of my portrait commissions. Many of my clients like to order these as special gifts for friends and relatives.
