In my portraiture work I focus on revealing the very soul and spirit of the subject model.

The details of the pose, eyes, facial structure, hair, clothing, light, etc are vital to render a good likeness, but the sparkle in the eyes and facial expression reveal something deeper about the person. Portraits rendered in charcoal are timeless. The clean lines and high contrast of black and white shapes are interesting to look at can be displayed in any decor-home or office.

Hand-drawn portraits make for a perfect gift for a loved one, neighbor or co-worker.  These fine art illustrations will compliment any household or office. Available in frame or unframed, finish in pastels, charcoal, acrylic, oil, gouache, pen and ink.

All Drawings are created from photos so sitting for portraits is not required. As in all our custom art work the better the quality of photo supplied the better the results. Please provide large photos of various poses: Front, side, 3/4 angle view of the subject. Portraits are available in all sizes. Original works are created on canvas, charcoal or pastel paper. For charcoal portraits only-our stock is 100% acid free paper. Acid is the element in paper that reacts to oxygen over time producing a yellowing of the paper stock. The acid free processed paper guarantees your portrait to look as good as new for life. Guaranteed.
