Hello and Welcome to The Portrait Shop

Portraiture has been a form of artwork used since early man was drawing on cave walls. Even then, they served as a special memento of the people and animals most important to our lives. Today, we have the ability to capture images at our fingertips, but commissioning a portrait is still a popular way of recording the likeness of a loved one to display in our homes as a cherished memento.

Here at The Portrait Shop you can commission a variety of different portraits, all in the medium of graphite pencil. Ordering your commission is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

1. Check out the Portrait Range below and head to the shop page to select the portrait you would like to commission.

2. Add the product(s) to your cart and purchase at the checkout. Full payment is made up front and there is a standard charge for postage and packaging. If you live locally (Eden Valley, Cumbria) you can choose to collect your portrait from the artist's house free of charge.

3. You will be contacted directly by your preferred contact method to discuss your commission. You can then send a digital copy of the subject's photo - check out the FAQ page for more information on photography for portraits.

Once completed, you will be sent a digital photo for your approval, before receiving the physical portrait in the post by Royal Mail recorded delivery. If you have any questions at any stage, just send a chat message or head to the contacts page and get in touch!
