About PENCIL PORTRAIT Commissions
Having a PENCIL PORTRAIT of an ancestor or child, or even of yourself, is very special…
… an addition to your home to enjoy now, and a treasured family heirloom for generations to come.

PENCIL PORTRAITS and are original works of art signed by the artist created from your existing photograph (black & white or color, recent or ancestral; 8×10 preferred but can use 4×6). Individual photos can be combined into one pencil portrait for an additional charge.

PENCIL PORTRAITS are suitable for birthdays, grandparent’s gifts, pre-school through high school graduation, Mother’s Day & Father’s Day, children’s recitals, sports events, holiday cards & gifts, and much more.

The PENCIL PORTRAIT is drawn in graphite pencil on 11×14″ acid-free 2-ply White Bristol Paper. In order to preserve the freshly drawn quality of the pencil portrait, the finished portrait is not sprayed with a fixative. The PENCIL PORTRAIT is shipped flat and ready for framing.

The PENCIL PORTRAITS that I create from your photographs are an excellent likeness of the individual, and reflect the spirit within. You won’t be disappointed.
