prefers to paint her subjects in their personal surroundings and will
come to their home or office. The artist requires one or two sessions
with the subject, during which time the goals of the portrait are
discussed and the artist becomes familiar with the subject. Questions
of size, formality clothing, details and background of the portrait
are addressed at this time, and some preliminary photos may be taken.
The next meeting consists of a photograph session with the subject
photographed in different poses and compositions. After the artist
reviews the preliminary photographs, she will meet again with the
subject or client to confer and select the final pose, likeness, and
composition. A brief photo session may occur at this time.
For large or more complex portraits the artist will provide a color
sketch. Delivery is arranged upon satisfactory completion of the portrait,
usually 3 to 8 months.
The artist is also pleased to assist with framing advice if the
client so desires.
Each Portrait is priced individually to suit the clients needs.
The pricing depends on size and complexity. Please feel free to
contact the Artist for more pricing information.
Informal Portrait Sketches are also available.
Framing, shipping, taxes, and travel expenses are additional. After
photos and studies have been completed and size and composition
have been confirmed, a 50% deposit is to be made at commencement
of the portrait. Total payment is due upon completion.
Client satisfaction is guaranteed.
"I was/am certainly impressed by your work, and would love to have
the sketch if you are indeed willing to part with it... Keep up
the good work,"
