To ensure you have a portrait that lasts a life time I use the best quality materials.
Faber castell polychromos and Caran D'Ache luminance coloured pencils, they're both lightfast branded pencils, lightfast means that the colours will not fade over time.
I use Strathmore Bristol board paper that is acid free and archival, this means that the paper has a life span of 500 years plus, so you will not experience any warping of the paper or any yellowing

A gallery of my artwork that has been skillfully framed by my local framer.

Selecting framing for your piece of art is a very personal choice. I work very closely with my clients and Framer to ensure you will get the best combination that will bring out the best in the portrait I have created for you.

When you choose to order framing I will take your portrait to my framers and put together a selection of frames and mounts.

If you have an idea of what you would like please let me know, or if you're unsure my framer and I will put some ideas together like shown in the photos below. This way you can select which one you like best.
