Portraits make wonderful gifts. I happen to be very good at capturing that tilt of the mouth and the sparkle in the eyes.  

I am very quick and can usually turn a portrait around in a couple of days, or faster if necessary.  

I work from photos and prefer your favorite snapshots rather than a professional photo. It doesn't matter what's in the background or if  you are wearing a torn up shirt or the kids have ice cream smudges on their face, or your dog's legs are covered in mud. I can change all of that.  

Do you wish you had a picture with Great Aunt Sara and your children together to give to your Mom? Send me the separate photos and I can morph them together on the paper or canvas.

Everything can be handled over the internet.  Just  email me your photos.

When my nephew was in the hospital for  weeks suffering through leukemia, he really missed his pets.  I took two separate pictures and constructed this portrait for him to have with him there at the hospital

Each medium lends itself to a different style, each style takes a different amount of time, therefore each is charged differently and I can't give a pat answer, but I am reasonable and well within the normal range for hand drawn portrait work. This is a general chart of pricing, but please be aware that this price is for normal, good quality photos that are easy to work from.  If we are morphing pics together, if the pictures are old or are not sharp or are faded out, then it takes me longer and consequently, it will cost more.
