My portraits are created using high quality, lightfast materials. Lightfast is a longevity rating in art supplies. The higher the score the longer the colour, pigment or material will last. All of my materials including the paper, canvases and boards I use are all archival and made to last ensuring you are getting the very best quality.

How to secure your slot on my waiting list:
I ask for a 30% non refundable deposit which will reserve your place on my waiting list. The balance can then be paid when the portrait is complete. Should monthly payments be convenient that is also an option.
I frequently ship outside of the UK. Please contact me for a quotation.
For acrylics on a pre-stretched canvas where the intention is to hang the finished painting directly on the wall, I continue the background on all 4 edges of the canvas. This makes them well suited in the cases where framing is not preferred. Should this be the preference they will come ready to hang with strong framing cord and cushion corner pads so that they are ready to be displayed immediately. Paintings on a pre-stretched canvas can be framed when you get them home. Alternatively, any local framer to you will be able to professionally frame them. Should the plan be to frame the painting it will be sent without the framing cord and corner pads as you or the framer will have to remove these when framing.
When painting portraits of head/shoulders I try to fill the entire canvas with the subject. There is usually a 1-2 inch gap from the subject to the edge of the canvas or paper. This creates a balanced portrait and ensures that if you choose to have it framed there is no loss of background/subject.
