Gifting A Portrait
Portraits make excellent gifts! Emma works to accommodate your requirements with multiple gift options – whether you need to keep it secret, or you want to deliver the gift of a portrait at short notice.
Commission A Portrait
Work with Emma to create a once-in-a-lifetime gift. Establish the deadline so that you can unveil the portrait at the perfect moment. All details of the portrait will be kept off of social media until after you gift it to ensure it's a surprise.
Once the drawing is complete, it will be gift-wrapped and sent either to you or directly to the recipient – the choice is yours!
Giving a gift certificate is a great option if the drawing cannot be completed in time for your deadline, or if you would like your loved one to experience the commission process, including choosing their own photo.
Gift certificates are available for portraits in a range of sizes and can be purchased from the shop.
