What type of portrait are you interested in? Who is it for? Maybe it's a memento of a beloved pet, a painting of the first place you called home, or a portrait of your children to give to the grandparents. If you know your budget and what size painting you would like, I'll be able to go ahead and give you a quote. Knowing your expectations helps the process get off on the right foot. Please click on the link below for a general list of painting sizes and prices.
I only paint from photographs and typically clients take the pictures themselves and then email or text them to me. If you are uncomfortable taking the photo yourself, I'm happy to come do it for you if you live in the Atlanta area. Please note that there is an additional fee for this service. If you will be taking your own pictures, please be sure to click on the following link and read about best practices for getting a good photo.
Once the photos are taken, I will be happy to help you choose the one that will give the best results.
If you plan on working from an existing photo, please make sure that the image is clear and shows the subject as you would like them to appear in the finished portrait.
Once you choose to have me paint your portrait, I will send you an email outlining the details and photo that we have agreed upon. You will need to respond that you are in agreement with the arrangement, and a 30% non-refundable deposit will be required before painting begins. Full payment is expected at the completion of the portrait.
I don not typically send "work in progress" photos because they can be deceiving, but I will send you a photo of your portrait as it nears completion to make sure you are satisfied with the image and see if you have any suggestions. Clients are encouraged to be honest and open about any adjustments that they would like to have made. I love working with my clients and enjoy using their input to make sure the portrait will be exactly what they want.
If you live in the Atlanta area, you can come by my home to pick up your finished piece. If the finished portrait needs to be mailed, it will be carefully packaged and sent via UPS. Please note that the client is responsible for all packaging and mailing costs..
