What programme do you use to draw your digital portraits?
I use the Procreate app with an Apple Pencil on my iPad Pro.
Are you open for commissions?
Yes. Hit me up in the contact form if you are interested.
Do you have specific materials to recommend to beginners?
Every beginner is different so my advice is to try them all and note the ones you like. It also highly depends on the style you are going for - technical and loose paintings have very different needs. All the best!
Children’s Book Illustration
What mediums do you use?
I tend to use watercolours, coloured pencils, gouache and even work digitally! It truly depends on the look that the author wants without deviating from my character style.
Are you represented by any agency?
Not yet, but I would love to be! I’m currently working independently and seeking representation.
Do you provide book design services too?
Yes, I do. It makes drawing a lot easier when I get to decide where the texts go.
How long does it take for you to complete a commission?
It depends on the complexity of the artwork as well as the workload I have at hand. For specifics, please reach out by filling in the contact form or writing to me via email.
What is your payment process like?
For digital portraits, I will ask for full payment upfront before I begin. For the others, I will ask for a non-refundable 30-50% payment, which will serve as securing your slot on my schedule as well as a kill fee should you decide to cancel on the commission after works have begun. The final payment will have to be fulfilled before I ship your painting or email the hi-res files to you.
How do you plan to ship the paintings?
Depending on their sizes, the paintings will be shipped in a mailer tube or with a hard backing card to prevent damage during transit.
What about copyright?
For digital portraits and watercolour paintings, ownership of original artwork belongs with the commissioner after full payment has been made. However, please note that I own the copyrights to all my artworks, which includes reproductive rights as well. Please note that this is not the case for children’s book illustration projects. Terms will be discussed among myself, the publisher and the author.
