Do you dare?
If you'd like a spectacular portrait of yourself, you can send me recent photo's of yourself via this link. Usually within 24 hours or at least quite quickly, I will let you know if I can work with you.
If you visit me to pose for a portrait, it will take me at least 3 to 4 days after each session to complete the portrait. Therefore I will only work with models that somehow inspire me, to allow me to invest that much time.
That's why you have to be over 20, not tattooed all over, and well-proportioned. If you have been looking around on my site, you should have an impression of what I mean by that already. But you don't need to look like any of the paintings here, of course. If you are different, that might inspire me even more.
However, if you make it to my Studio, you will have to pose Nude for the most part. That's why it takes courage to do this. Without that, I really can't work with you.
If you are my kind of model, I can come up with hundreds of possible situations to paint you in, as the center of attention, but you have the deciding say in it. You can be painted sexy, erotic, assertive, scary, aggressive, sweet and magical. Anything is possible, really.
If you prefer to commission me for a personal and private portrait (for yourself, your partner or another purpose), you can.
I need a good description of what you would like me to do, in what size, and style, and if you send along your recent photographs I will make you a good quote. If I don't have all the details or the photos needed to make a good portrait, I can't make a reasonable estimate.
See you soon, maybe?
