Pencil portraits are drawn on A3, A4 or A5 extra smooth surface drawing pad with only the best quality Artist or Studio pencils, then sprayed with gloss varnish which forms a colourless glass clear coating: this makes it resistant to smearing and smudging.

I also provide a framing service at reasonable price if you require a frame with your pencil portrait. Please view my frame page for more information.

Commissioned Pencil portraits can make a great gift for Birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Anniversaries, Weddings, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas Day or a personalised gift for any occasion.

I also draw pets from photographs, which include dogs, cats, horses or any animal you believe to be a pet.

If you are interested in ordering a unique photo realistic pencil portrait from photograph, please click on order page and complete the Order Form. Alternatively contact me via contact form or email with your photo for more information. I also accept orders from overseas.

Photos you send me can be digital or ordinary: The photo should be clear and sharp because I can only draw what I see, so if detail is low, the detail in the pencil portrait will be low. The clearer and sharper the photo the better the portrait will be. High resolution photo is preferable – the higher the better.

I require a non-refundable 20% deposit before I can start to draw. This can be paid when you complete my order form or I will request the deposit when you contact me by contact form or email. As soon as I receive the completed order or contact form I will reply as soon as I can to confirm receipt and request non-refundable 20% deposit if not already paid.

When I have completed the pencil portrait I will send you an email with an image for you to review and approve and request balancing payment.

Pencil portraits will take between 1 to 4 weeks to complete depending on workload.
