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 large orders, 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.
