We all like to know we’re getting value for money so here’s a quick expo on fees. My prices reflect the amount of time it takes to:
- capture a likeness of the person/people
- capture a likeness of all the props and places that I won’t have drawn before
- construct a compelling composition starting from scratch (because each portrait is completely different)
- create a palette of colours that complement each other and don’t conflict
Prices start at £149 for a dynamic drawing of one person – these take at least a full day to draw.
Couple portraits obviously take longer so they start at £169
Family and group portraits start at £219 as they take around 1.5 to 2 full days
Want to add a pet? Add £15
Want to add a house? Add £50
Evolution portraits are £199
Doodle portraits are £220 and I usually go around whimpering with my hand in a sling once I’ve finished adding the intense detail…
Big number (or big name) portraits which include as much jaw-dropping content as I can fit on the page, can take more than 2 days so they’re £250
’This is Your Life’ extravaganzas take 3-4 days (followed by a week of therapy lying down in a dark room with my right hand in a soothing poultice) so they’re £549

Want to go the extra mile but don’t want the bother of DIY? Just ask me to frame your portrait for £49.
My premium frames are approx 12 x 17 inches with an aperture of A4.
I opt for a stylish black finish as standard because this sets off the black outlines in all my drawings. My frames can stand alone or be wall mounted.
I now front all my frames with plastic instead of glass – but don’t panic at the P word, I promise it looks as sparklingly good as glass and is less liable to scratch. It’s also much lighter so far easier for you to hang on the wall and safer to have on free standing display.
You can choose to organise the framing yourself if you prefer.
Whatever you order, delivery is free if you live in Maidenhead. Alternatively customers can collect for free from the Maidenhead HQ.
