Prices and Commissions
All of my work is available as A4 prints or A6 greetings cards. Postage is included in all pricing for the UK. Overseas postage is quoted accordingly. No artwork is supplied with mounting, unless previously arranged and agreed, and postage tubes are used to prevent damage. All prints are on acid-free heavyweight archive paper using top quality Epson Claria premium ink which makes the prints fade-resistant. All commissions are drawn on heavyweight acid-free paper, usually Bristol Board or Stonehenge depending on medium used. Pastel portraits are painted on velour paper for a soft rich finish, or pastel mat. For commissions, I work from photographs so it is essential that I have clear, focussed photographs to work from; these can be sent either digitally (but not from mobile phones as they compress the photos making zooming in for details impossible!) or as originals (these would be returned with the completed portrait), but for an accurate portrait to be drawn, it cannot be emphasised enough that they need to be clear - the quality of the photograph will always have an impact on the finished portrait.
A4 colour prints - from £25 Limited Edition prints are from £45 (eg "Ain't Life Grr-eat" limited to 250 prints)
A6 cards are £1.50 each, or £5 for 5, A5 cards are £2.50 each, or £10 for 5.
