Disclaimer: I am not a robot, the finished product will not look like a photo, but I will take extreme care to create a lovely piece of art for you and yours to cherish. I reserve the right to use the portrait drawing as a sample of my work on my website, and as advertising for my business. I will not sell a print of your custom portrait to anyone else. I can not offer matting or framing at this time.
