To purchase a custom portrait and to be added to my books please complete the following steps.
1. View my pricing sheet.
2. Submit form for a custom quote.
3. Create a Dropbox folder containing all the photos needed to recreate your art piece. Submit link to firstname.lastname@example.org.
* Once these steps are completed you will then be added to my waitlist.
Please reach out to me if you should have any additional questions.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, I do! I offer three to six month payment plan options. Payment plans are interest free and do not require a credit check to be approved.
Please contact me before you make your purchase to schedule out your payment plan dates and amount.
Payments are non-refundable and your portrait will not begin until payment has been made in full.
How long will it take for me to receive my custom portrait?
Once all the above steps have been completed, you will then be added to my waitlist. Production time varies depending on the season so please message me for an exact time frame or if you have a specific need by date.
How do I submit my photos?
The best way to submit your photos would be to create a dropbox folder and email the link to email@example.com.
How much detail is replicated into the piece?
These are very personal pieces and it’s in the finest of detail that makes each person or pet unique. I recreate every earring, handbag, and ring to name a few so please don’t hesitate to send me photos of items you think are too small to recreate. I might surprise you.
How do I pick the right photos to complete my custom portrait?
A minimum of three reference photos (per person). Close-up and full-profile front-facing photos are needed.
Please pick sharp high-resolution photos and create a Dropbox folder for easy sharing. If a photo is too small or poor quality, I will not be able to make out enough detail for accurate replication. Individual photos and web links are perfectly fine to use!
To recap what is needed:
Three high resolution photos (per person)
Clear photos of desired hairstyle
Clear photos of desired clothing
* web links also accepted
Create a folder with all your photos through Dropbox and email link to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a background is purchased with your portrait, please provide me with the following:
High resolution photos of the desired location
Location and name of venue (this would have been filled out in the questionnaire you completed)
