Unwanted blemishes can be easily removed with a little digital make up

If you are interested in a unique artistic portrait for yourself, or maybe as a surprise for a friend, please drop me a line and let's start a conversation.
We can either meet up and I take my own shots, or images can be supplied for me to work with (as long as the quality and resolution are good enough).
A style or painting technique can be selected from those shown on this page, or other suggestions can be explored. Whatever is the starting point, no two portraits will ever follow exactly the same process. The finished work will always be as unique as the subject.
Where l can, l will charge an affordable price, based on the person's budget and the complexities of the commission. l don't charge by the hour.
Unlike a conventional painting of a fixed size, the end result is a high resolution computer image that can be printed to any size, large or small on paper or other materials like canvas, wood, or even glass.
I will also supply a lower resolution image for personal use as a laptop screen shot, social media profile image etc.
l will retain the copywrite, of the original art, and this image cannot be used for any other purpose, sold, copied or distributed without my written permission
