My work is done from original photographs that I have taken. Otherwise I do commission work from photos provided. Portrait prices depend on size and how many subjects in the picture. In accordance with normal artists’ practices, a deposit of 50% is needed before starting the commissioned piece. The remaining balance and shipping costs will be due prior to delivery or when picked up. Sales tax and shipping charges are extra. The shipping amount depends on the size and destinations of each piece. When ordering a commission piece, it is advisable for you to meet with me and submit at least two to two good photos of each person or pet you want me to work from. The photos make a big difference on the end quality of the piece. I would be glad to take photos of your pet, person or subject that you want artwork done of. I charge $10 per hour for the photo session if local; cost per hour plus gas and/or hotel if out of town.
