Commission a Portraicast™
Inquiries may be made by contacting the artist directly
via e-mail or
by telephone for more information. A commission is always
a collaboration, feel free to discuss your ideas or
Portraicasts™ require only one sitting (approximately
2 hours)during which photography, creative discussion
and a life-cast all take place in a comfortable, relaxed
atmosphere. This ensures a true likeness will be captured
in the final idealized sculpture yet ultimately allows
time for the artist to capture the spirit and make the
invisible visible during later work.
The sitting can be scheduled to take place in
the artist's studio in convenient midtown Manhattan
or in Los Angeles (in a charming rustic setting
designed by the artists & overlooking the canyons).
Sittings can also be arranged to take place in your
home for an additional fee covering travel expenses.
(The most recent commission entailed travel to Australia).
Every commission is unique and truly affordable
since you can decide what best suits your needs.
Prices for a lifesize portrait head or bust are determined

A Sutton Place investor, whose ancient Roman sculptures
were exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum, desired a
Roman portrait bust of his wife in Mid-Augustan style.
An Australian investment banker, who collected Camille
Claudel sculptures, felt his daughter
was reminiscent of her Petit
Chatelaine. A bearded
Canadian with a western hat fitted in unobtrusively
with his Remington Bronzes. A psychic
healer, visiting from Denmark, became a terra cotta
Bodhisattva with a mystical "third eye" of blue lapis
stone which came from a ring he wore to the sitting.
A Chicago client created a climate-controlled Egyptian
tomb to house his artifacts, complete with limestone
walls and hieroglyphics. He envisioned an Egyptian
alabaster of his wife as its reigning Queen. A most
touching request came from a mother who wanted a decorated
"Midsummer Night's Dream" fairy-like
mask of her six year old daughter which one day
she could show to her future grand-daughter saying,
"This is your mother at your age." (Ages have ranged
from 6 to 86).
you were to own just one piece of art, it should be
something very personal that celebrates the past, present,
future and life itself.
Portraicasts™ do so imaginatively,
effortlessly and affordably.
