Commission a portrait

If you are interested in commissioning a portrait or would like more details, simply email me at lois@childportraitartist.co.uk including your name, address and a photograph of the child/children attached. We can then discuss your options and a full non-obligatory quote including postage and packaging charges will be provided.

If you choose to go ahead with the portrait commission I will begin work on your portrait as soon as payment is confirmed. Payment must be made in full when you commission a portrait. You can pay be cheque, credit/debit card via our payment provider Paypal or by bank transfer.

Once your portrait is complete it will be emailed to you for your approval. Once approved the portrait will be dispatched.

For mixed media and oil painted portraits I ask for a 50% deposit before the portrait is started, with the remainder paid once you have approved an email proof of your portrait.

Postage and packaging
All commissions will be reinforced with cardboard and well packaged. Mounted pieces will also be celophane wrapped. All artwork will be posted by a tracked courier service and will require a signature at point of delivery.

If you would like to provide an alternative address for delivery where someone will be available to sign for the parcel, please specify.

I can offer free local hand delivery to the Haslemere area.

International delivery is currently not available.

Framing
Commissions are all unframed. Drawings and mixed media portraits will be supplied double mounted ready for framing. Offering pieces unframed gives you the opportunity to select a frame to suit your taste, decor and budget. The standard sized mounts used allows you to purchase a ready-made frame or alternatively you can use a professional framer who will give you advice on which type of frame would suit your piece best. Oil paintings are supplied unframed. These can be hung unframed or can be taken to a professional framer.
