Custom Drawing Inquiry

Jean has enjoyed doing custom drawings for over 25 years.  However, at this time she is unable to accept new projects due to an unusually long waiting list.  For future reference, you can learn more about commissioning a drawing and Jean’s process below.  If you are still interested, we invite you to check back periodically to see if she is adding new names to her list.
Thanks for your patience!


Thank you for your interest in commissioning a drawing. I consider it a privilege and pleasure to creating something that honors your loved one and invites hope, comfort and connection to her/his friends and family.

There are two conditions you should be aware of as you consider having a custom drawing done.

First, I always have a waiting list, so depending on its length, it may be 3-6 months before I can start on your drawing. If you need it by a specific date, and it necessitates putting it ahead of others on my list, there will be a “rush fee” of $50-$100 added if I can accommodate it.

Second, the price for a commissioned picture of one person with Christ is $200.  The initial order includes the original 8x10 pencil drawing (portrait) of the person only, and an 8x10 print of the portrait. Also included in the package is an 8x10 and 11x14 print of that person in a pose with Jesus. I then use Photoshop to incorporate the portrait into a drawing of Christ done previously. An example of the “two for one” package is below. This process has prevented me from burning out while providing over 600 drawings in the past 20 years. If your custom drawing involves a pose not available in my files, the price will be negotiated.

If either the cost or waiting period prohibits you from commissioning a drawing, I respect your decision, and appreciate your looking into it.
