A high-resolution scan of all drawings is taken and securely kept on file in case a replacement or extra copies are required in the future.
Conditions for Commissioned Works : Once an agreement has been made on the photograph to be drawn, I will confirm the price and expected time-scale for completing the work.
I then request a non-refundable deposit of 20% of the total price.
Once the photo has been agreed and the deposit received the commission is then deemed to be active.
Please note, once work has commenced, it will not be possible to change the photograph used. If you decide to change your mind once the commission is in progress – this is deemed to be a new commission.
I will email you a copy of the finished portrait for your approval and sign off before full payment is required.
Upon completion of the drawing and having received your final approval and sign sign off, I will use a spray fixer to fix the artwork. No further amends can be made to the drawing after this point.
Once approved, I will request payment of the remaining 80% balance plus the cost of sending the finished portrait by Special Delivery.
You are obliged to complete full and final payment within seven days of approval. I will send you the finished portrait once the payment has cleared.
Methods of payment accepted are credit and debit cards, direct bank transfer, Paym or cash.

Product care advice: Prior to framing the drawing, it is important to keep the pencil portrait within the sleeve it is mailed in, to avoid damaging or smudging the drawing.
