If you are interested in commissioning a portrait from me, please do get in touch via the email address above.  If the painting or drawing is to be of a child, we can either arrange sittings, or as is usually more practical with children, I will work from photographs. If you are London based, or close to London, I prefer to work from my own photographs of the child rather than photographs provided, as I make sure that they are suitable for the medium - lighting, pose, expression.  Therefore we would arrange a time when either you could bring your child to my studio at home in London, or I would come to your home, bringing my camera with me in order to chat to the child, getting to know them a little, before taking some informal photographs.  I then work on the portrait in my studio and contact you when it is completed.  If the portrait is to be of an older child or adult, I discuss the possibility of sittings and, depending on availability, either work with the combination of sittings and photographs or solely photographs.

If you live away from London, or are abroad, I will discuss the kind of photographs I need, and we will go through photographs you have already, even possibly taking some new photos for me to use which are appropriate.  I am always happy to discuss the possibilities and want the process to be as easy and effective as if you were local.
