Each Portrait is a unique work of art and it is preferable, when possible, that several meetings take place between the artist and client to discuss setting, lighting, wardrobe, formal arrangement, etc. The artist will make sketches and take a variety of photographs, then discuss compositional possibilities with the client. Once a composition is agreed upon, the portrait will be completed using the photographic source material and, when possible, live sittings. Prices are based on subject, including number of figures, setting and scale.
What artists discover, in the process of identifying the character of a subject in a portrait, are reflections. What is ultimately realized is the shared rigor of lived experience between the artist and subject.
