Pricing

General Guidelines for How I Work:

Have a preliminary phone conversation and/or email exchange outlining the basic project scope and goals for the commissioned portrait. If you have any specific requests, this is the time to ask as extra work will affect the overall price.

The initial email exchange or phone call will be summarized with a written Work Agreement. This document will include a detailed summary of the portrait project including the number of subjects, size, the agreed upon delivery date, method of shipping, and shipping costs.

A deposit equal to 50% of the estimated cost must be received before work on the project commences. This deposit also serves as a standard non-refundable “kill fee” in the event that the project is cancelled after work has started. For your convenience, PayPal is accepted.

The following list describes base prices for potrait work. Please submit a request for a quote to receive a more accurate and specific price for your project.

The listed base prices include the following:

  1. Establishing the portrait composition based on the initial consultation. A digital image or PDF proof of the rough composition will be emailed to the Client.

  2. If the initial composition is not acceptable, one new composition will be created and emailed to Client for approval. If secondary composition is rejected, an additional charge of $25 for each new composition will be applied until final composition is approved.

  3. The final composition will be transferred to the artwork surface and the final drawing begins.

  4. When portrait is finished, it will be sent to Client by insured USPS Priority Mail. If second day or overnight delivery is required, additional charges will apply.

Payment Terms

Half in advance, remaining balance (including any additional incurred charges and shipping)
