She was the perfect subject to take photos of - we do prefer to take our own photos where possible - and her owner was delighted with the completed commission. A gift for Christmas 2019.

This commission is something different to my usual. The car owner's wife found me under "pastel artist" on Google and sent me the image she wished me to complete in pastel. Although the quality of the reference photo was not good, I was able to complete it to her satisfaction. It was sent to her address by courier and arrived safely.

This is my most recent portrait family commission. The daughter of a friend commissioned this for her boss - the family have a property in Switzerland. The photo was a selfie and the quality was poor but I did the best I could and she was delighted. I do not like the distortion but selfies do that!
