John A. Clapp, Artist/miniaturist

Having a commission done is a great gift for any occasion or can be an everlasting keepsake for yourself.

**Please scroll down to see examples**

The commission process:

Choose a photo or photos of what you would like a drawing of.  I can work with a variety of subjects.  People, keepsakes, houses, etc.

Contact me via email to start the dialog.  Please title the email Commission request.

If images weren't included in the original email I will ask for them to be emailed at this time so I can provide feedback on quality of photo, scope of project and provide a quote.  The better the image, the better the drawing will turn out.  I can't add details that I can't see.

I work in sizes of 2" x 3"(mini) up to approx. 11" x 14".

I use high quality acid free materials to allow for generations of enjoyment.  Note: acid free means it won't yellow over time.

I usually need at least 4 - 6 weeks to complete a drawing.  The size, number of subjects, and background detail could add time to this.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.  Thanks
