If you're not able to support a clear photo in good quality we may arrange for photo shots at your place, at your home or office.

I am working from photographs but you may ask for some special compositions, different clothes, new backgrounds, etc.
I am able draw and paint from life and I have worked as a police artist to sketch crime suspects in the past. So don't be curious about likeness of your portraits or my talent. But I am not painting or drawing live at this time. Unfortunatelly, having time to sit is not always possible or desirable for everyone. Especially I am making very high detailed artworks and painting nonstop for very long and weary hours. A good photo taken in natural light is a valuable tool and can create a beautiful portrait.

It is important to discuss the idea of the portrait: will it be with plain background or detailed background with furniture, garden, etc?

I will work in Ellicott City, Maryland.

Drawings are usually will be finished in a week, but oil paintings may need 15 days to a month. You can ask how much time it will take your ordering process.

I will prefer to show preliminary sketches and ask for your approval on complicated compositions only.

Please come back again to see new samples.
I am also available to draw and paint in different subjects. You can think about custom paintings subjects.

You can fill out this form below to inquire about creating your own custom portrait / painting.
Please fill out all relevant fields so I can best respond to your request.
