I require reference photos to work from to complete the commission and as I will do my best to replicate the image provided. The better the quality of the reference photo the better the outcome of my work but I understand that good-quality photos are not always an option due to pets/people passing on. In the circumstances where the quality of your reference is low this may impact the level of detail and realism within my work.

    Custom People and Animal Portraits by an Experienced Artist

    Portraits are a timeless and elegant representation of a special person and make a great gift for birthdays, weddings, retirement, or to immortalize a loved one who passed. As a professional artist, I strive to bring happiness and comfort to people’s lives by creating an original piece that celebrates your loved one’s life. I use either pencils or charcoal to turn a photo into fine art.
