Portrait Commission

Want to commission a hooked wool portrait?

Send a photo of your pet or person, and I if I accept the commission, I will create a one-of-the-kind 16" x 20" heirloom portrait hooked in wool for $1000.  Digital photos are preferred, although I can work with old photos as long as they are able to be scanned.  I will be reproducing the photo in wool, so the pet or person must be in the desired pose and accessories.  Since I am a portrait artist, I prefer head-shots.

The contracted fee includes all set up and design fees, heirloom quality linen foundation, hand-dyed Red Jack Palette wools cut in 3/8" strips, hand-dyed wool show binding, and standard US shipping costs. 

$200 non-refundable initial payment is due before the design process begins.  Proofs of the design must be approved in writing by you before I proceed with hooking your portrait.  

I will send a photo of your finished wool portrait before final payment of $800 is made.  If you choose not to purchase the portrait for any reason, the finished rug becomes my property and the initial $200 design fee will not be returned.  In all cases, I reserve the copyright to the design and the right to publish the design and rug.  If the rug remains my property, I reserve the right to exhibit the rug.

Once I receive the final $800 payment, I will ship your wool portrait via FedEx.
