How to order a portrait?

To commission a portrait please contact me by e-mail or telephone me in
St. Petersburg, my home city.

Alternatively please telephone my friend Tania Illingworth in London who is very happy to provide you with any information and a full portfolio of
my work.

Should you wish to
consider having a portrait painted, I would meet and photograph you/the sitter and then provide you with a sketch of the portrait. After that, I start the portrait in my studio in St. Petersburg and return to you with the painting only 70% completed.
This procedure has been very successful and enables me to complete the portrait in situ with minimal sitting time.
