I produce caricatures of celebrities, movie stars, musicians, and public figures. I’m not currently taking commissions of private individuals. I offer a wide range of work, from simple black and white drawings, beginning at A5 size (approximately 6 x 8 inches) and going up to A3 (approx. 12 x 16 inches); to full-blown, full-colour paintings on canvas or board, beginning around 12 x 16 inches, and going up to whatever size is required. But drawings can be in colour, and paintings can be in monochrome, to suit your tastes. I work with clients as much as possible to give them a collaborative experience.
Please note that I price each piece on its individual requirements. As a very rough rule of thumb, drawings are in the £100 - £400 range, and paintings are in the £400 - £2,000 range, depending on the degree of detail, the content, size, etc. If more than one person is to be caricatured, I will price accordingly, depending also upon what you'd like from a detail/background point of view. Any painting larger than 2 x 3 feet will fall beyond the £2,000 quoted above. And I always produce preliminary drawings for approval before I move on to a final piece.
I ship worldwide, and require a 50% deposit on all commissions.
