Denise can draw a portrait of your loved one and/or beloved pet. Multiple people/animals on one sheet is also possible. For this you can choose from pastel and graphite, or a combination of both. She uses high quality Faber Castell brand material. For graphite drawings she uses Canson Bristol paper which is solid and smooth, ideal to draw as realistically and detailed as possible. For pastel drawings she also uses Clairefontaine paper called 'Pastelmat'. This paper has a fine, granular texture the pastel colors adhere to very well. Please see her portfolio for previews of her work. Would you like to know about rates and size options? Click here.

30 minute sketch (animals)
If you are low on budget, but would still like a unique drawing of your pet, Denise can make a 30 minute sketch for you. These drawings are created on Strathmore sketching paper and are available in two colors: gray and beige. For the gray paper she uses a graphite pencil and a white pastel pencil. For the beige paper she uses brown, gray and white pastel pencils. You can find examples of both here. These sketches take approximately 30 minutes and she mostly pays attention to the eyes and proportions, to reach maximum likeness. At the moment this is only available in A5 paper format. Please contact Denise if you would like a larger format.
Detailed sketch (animals and people)
A detailed sketch is less detailed than a portrait and more detailed than a 30 minute sketch. These drawings are made on beige colored Strathmore sketching paper with brown, gray and white pastel pencils. This is available in A4 and A5 paper format. You can find previews here.
