My pencil portraits are hand drawn in graphite from one or more photographs. Portraits are usually drawn on 14 inch x 17 inch archival paper but size can vary depending upon customer preference. Typically it takes about two to four weeks to complete a commission, however rush requests will be considered. Portraits are priced at $250 for one subject and $100 for each additional subject per portrait.
You’ve heard some people can’t see the forest because of the trees. In a way my ink portraits are like a forest, made up of tiny images to create a larger image. Each “tree” may be just a shape or line that make up the big forest portrait. However they also may be images, words, names or quotes that are captured to reveal something about the person in the portrait.
