How to book a commission

Choose a reference photo

To complete a portrait to the best of my ability I need a high resolution photograph taken in natural lighting. Several supporting photos always help with colours, features and personality. Photo quality is extremely important, the more detail I can see in the photo the more detail I can draw. If the photo is too blurry or pixelated I will ask for a higher quality photo.

Contact me

You can contact me via email or social media. Send me your best photos and any other important information e.g. size and colour preference, if you need the artwork by a certain date, items or subjects to remove or add in. I will get back to you with size and price options that would work best for your chosen reference photo.

If you have more than one subject but want them together I can merge multiple photos together, depending on the quality, angle and lighting in the photos.


Once we have come up with a plan I ask for a 50% non refundable deposit, this secures your space in my waitlist and gives me a solid timeline. The balance is due after completion of the artwork prior to shipping

Completion time

Completion time depends on how many orders I have on my wait list at the time. Quite often there is a 3 - 6 month wait list, especially at the end of the year towards Christmas. If you have a birthday, wedding or anniversary coming up that you are hoping to have it ready by get in touch sooner rather than later to make sure I can get it done in time for the big event! Wait time always changes, you can check the pinned post on facebook for updates or flick me a message to find out the current wait time.
