As a member of the Portrait Society of America, I accept Portrait and Figurative Commissions in Charcoal and Oil.
I am happy to create your portrait from from live sittings at my studio in Toronto or from photographs sent or e-mailed to me depending on your schedule and location. I am equally comfortable with either method provided the photos are of high resolution and quality. If you prefer, I am happy to suggest a composition and take my own photos from which to work.
Completion of the portrait may take from 1 to 6 months, depending on size, subject matter, medium, the client’s preferred style (impressionistic or realistic) and whether I am working from photos or from live sittings (live sittings and works in oil may take longer)
Once the portrait is completed the client will view it and discuss any adjustments that he / she would like to have me make. We then either meet for the final unveiling or, for clients living abroad, we correspond via e-mail with photos of the finished portrait for approval
