portrait commissions


i create both digital and analog collages, but the majority of my work is done using a mix of digital and analog techniques, meaning analog elements are manipulated by hand, then scanned, and later assembled digitally.

in order to create a custom collage portrait, be it based on a vintage or contemporary photograph, all i need is a (very) high resolution digital file and NOT necessarily the original photograph. which means you don’t have to sacrifice a possibly unique family heirloom in order to turn it into a contemporary piece of art.

unlike with more traditional portrait commissions, prices don’t depend on their size but vary depending on the complexity of the image [number of people in the image for example] and the final style and format of portrait you desire. if you commission me to create a digital or mixed media collage, you will always receive a large, high resolution JPEG file that you can print in a variety of sizes as often as you wish, or use online in whatever form or context you want. it is also possible to have a hand finished, signed print in addition to the digital portrait.

below, you can find a list of frequently asked questions.

if there is anything else you want to know, or if you want to discuss a possible project or commission, please don’t hesitate to get in touch ︎
