Pencil Portrait Art

“Black Stallion”, Charcoal, 20″ x 16″, Created at age 15.

“Kodi”, Graphite Sketch, 3″ x 3″

My mom had told me the first thing I ever drew was a horse. I think I must have just been born loving horses and spent my childhood obsessively making horse art. The black stallion drawing shown here was created when I was 15 years old and it marked the start of my making horse portraits for others. I still specialize in horse portraits today, but I do offer dog portraits as well.

While my art has expanded and I’ve grown to using a wide variety of mixed media materials, I still love creating commissioned drawings that celebrate the love for and honor beloved four legged family members. I’d be happy to help provide you with a custom work of art to express that!

How it’s done:
I can work from your reference photos (or take my own for those in my local area). If you need to take photos, I can help provide info/advice on how to take them, the file formats preferred and other tech stuff if needed. All my drawings are created using top quality fine artist materials, on acid free board (NOT paper) and are sealed for UV and smudge free protection. I purposely create commissions in standard framing sizes so they can easily fit inside readily available frames that match your style and decor without having to incur custom framing charges.

Price & Payment Info:
The most popular commissioned sizes for B&W graphite (single animal, head or close up):
• 8″ x 10″ with 11″ x 14″ acid free mat    $375. + shipping
• 11″ x 14″ with 16″ x 20″ acid free mat  $525. + shipping
I can and do offer other standard sizes/prices as well as custom sized work and can quote you on any size you’d like! Shipping costs vary based on location and I will provide with you the best shipping rate based on your zip code/country. Art ships via insured USPS and US shipments are sent with signature delivery confirmation. Payments accepted: PayPal, checks, money orders. Advance payment preferred or a minimum 50% deposit is required with balance due before delivery. A deposit and payment plan can also be offered.
