Workings and Pricing


 Painting a portrait in oils can be a long process with many sessions to achieve a nicely finished painting.

A nice size for a portrait is 16"x 20", large enough to make a great impression whilst fitting into most homes comfortably.

Please supply me with a few reference photos, highlighting the preferred option. Ideally the photo should be clear with a good variety of light and shade. I can combine photos or change surrounding features, any special requests, try me!

The finished painting will be delivered gloss varnished and I can ship abroad. Please bare in mind that shipping costs will be extra. 

Stretched canvas

Oil on canvas portrait ideally a head and shoulders.




Stretched canvas

Oil on canvas, a larger format allowing for more detail or three quarters body.




Stretched canvas

This size is large and imposing. For those who like to make an impact or for a large room.





The prices are a guide only, please contact me with reference photos for a more accurate quote. Much depends on the number of figures in the painting and most particularly the complexity of the image. I can talk it through with you and give an idea on a time frame which largely depends on other orders in the book at the time.

"I am delighted with my portrait. Katie has a real talent for portraiture that is lifelike yet flattering and which I am very happy to display alongside other artwork."

"I was looking for a unique present to mark my daughters 10th birthday. She painted a strikingly beautiful portrait of her. I have already commissioned her to do a second family portrait."
