Contact me below to inquire about available works and desired commissions.
As previously mentioned, I work directly from life to create a greater sense of life, light, and presence. I think engaging with the sitter is crucial to truly capture their complete likeness; however, smaller details like clothes can be completed sans sitter, using a mannequin or supplementary sketches/photos.
a charcoal drawing
50x70 cm on handmade Roma paper
) takes about 3-4 sessions, (each painting session roughly 3 hrs) and costs €650.
A traditional head/shoulders oil portrait
50x60 cm on handmade, double primed linen canvas
) takes about 1/2 session to design, 6 sessions to paint, and costs about €2000. I make my own canvases and hand grind my paints, and work in a traditional alla prima method.
A more complex portrait, such as a double portrait, would take more time to design and then create; approximately double the time and price.
