“In art, as in life, everything is possible so long as it is based on love.”

                                                            - Marc Chagall

Due to the many variables involved in creating a
portrait such as: size, medium (charcoal/pastel), composition (head & shoulders, half-length,
three-quarter length), clothing (formal/informal),
a brief consultation is required.

I prefer to work from life. If that is not possible, as is often the case with children and animals, a photography session of approximately 1-2 hours will need be scheduled. A $100.00 non-refundable payment is required to cover the cost of the photography session.

We will then finalize the size, medium, pose/composition, clothing, setting and total cost of your portrait. A 50% deposit is required. I will begin the work and the balance is due upon completion.
