Commission a Portrait

‘We made a commission through the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and it was one of the best decisions ever.’

A portrait is an adventure of love and legacy; a journey where the essence of a person is translated through the lens of an artist to create a unique and incomparable work of art for generations to enjoy.

Founded in 1891, The Royal Society of Portrait Painters boasts a long history of excellence with the great portrait painters of each generation among our artists.
