My goal is to offer my clients works of art of the highest quality at a fair price.

The following prices are basic prices for a detailed, photorealistic portrait with a head and shoulder. Additional charges may apply for additional items that may add time to completion (e.g. scenery, background, architecture, patterned clothing, hats, etc.). Full figures, large groups or other complex motifs are welcome and will be quoted based on your provided image. Framing is not included. Prices are plus shipping as an insured shipment within Germany. International shipping varies by country.

Request for quotation:
To request a quote, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and include the following information in your email:

  1. Your name and any additional contact information you want to provide.
  2. The size of the drawing you want.
  3. The photo or photos on which the drawing / portrait is to be based.
  4. Special requests or questions.

The order process:

  1. After receiving your email, I will reply within 24 hours.
  2. I will send you an offer with shipping costs by email.
  3. If you decide to commission the drawing, I will send you an email invoice for 50% of the total cost as a deposit that must be paid before work starts.
    This is non-refundable.
  4. I will start working on your drawing.
  5. When the drawing is ready, I will email you a digital image for your approval and make adjustments if necessary.
  6. Upon completion, you approve the drawing and send the remaining payment via a second email invoice.
  7. As soon as the final payment is received, the drawing will be sent to you!

Images should have the highest possible resolution. The quality of the image determines the quality of the final drawing in many ways. If you want a portrait, the best image to draw from is a head-to-shoulder photograph. It's difficult to crop a full body image into a portrait and keep the details in the photo.


Would you like something unique?

If you are interested, send me your contact details and your request for pictures.
I'll get in touch with you.

Thanks for your interest
