For answers to your questions about commissioning a portrait with me, I welcome you to visit "Commissions" and "Pricing", and review more examples of my portraiture at .
Lead time required for a portrait commission is commensurate with the detail and the technique being utilized. For any further questions please contact me at
A note that on occasion I post drawings from life, as well as drawings of nude models, as it is an important traditional practice which improves my ability in portraiture.

Portraits of Lauren

"Sweet Pea Blossom," 2 5/16" x 1 13/16", egg tempera on vellum

Throughout her life I have done a number of portraits of my niece, Lauren, and here
are two of them. "Sweet Pea Blossom" is a miniature portrait of Lauren between the age of
1 and 2, and "Lauren's Graduation Day" portrays her on the day of her college
graduation in May of this year.

"Lauren's Graduation Day," 5" x 7", silverpoint, graphite, and egg tempera on toned panel
