it's Pencil Strokes!
I work with graphite (pencil) and all my original work is done 100% by hand. I don't use computer editing to produce your custom artwork. It's all pencil! I am committed to taking great care and attention to detail to ensure that you will be pleased with your finished portrait. Your commissioned art will be something you and yours will treasure for a lifetime!
Portrait of you or your Pet
Perfect for your friend's wedding, a new baby, or a special event! My original work will be something you and yours will cherish for a lifetime. I gladly accept custom orders for portraits! I charge $5.00 a square inch, unframed. 50% of the total cost is required up-front before I began work. Two viewing sessions included. Visit the Gallery to see samples of my artwork.
Architecture and Full background Drawings
Do you have a beautiful building or home you want drawn? Or maybe you have full background wildlife drawing in mind? I charge the base price of $5.00 a square inch, plus an additional $100, unframed. 50% of the total cost is required up-front before I began work. Two viewing sessions included.
How Long Will It Take to Draw?
8x10" drawing takes roughly three to five weeks to complete, depending on the complexity. 11x14" takes roughly five to seven weeks, depending on the complexity.
I need a least one, high-quality, clear photograph. When working, it is nice to have several reference photos to check details. No blurry cellphone photos accepted. Fine art isn't cheap, and I usually can't make beautiful art from your Facebook post! Remember, if it doesn't look good as a photograph, it won't look good as art!
Would you like your new drawing framed and ready to hang? I offer custom framing options!
Do You Sell Prints?
Yes I do! I offer a variety of different open prints and numbered prints on my Etsy Shop.
