COMMISSIONS
There are two ways to commission a painting. There's the traditional process - Contact me, we'll talk over what you're looking for, determine size and scope, and then have a studio visit for a photo shoot and probably some sketching. These portraits can be any size and can be historic or straightforward. Read on below....
Or, there's my new company Wax Portrait Gallery, which offers small, square format portraits from photographs. These don't require studio sittings and can be sent to/from anywhere! Read more below....
