Process of creating a commissioned portrait

Catherine works from photographs that she either takes herself or from a photograph of your choice. These photographs have to be of high resolution so that there is enough detail in the image to create a quality piece of art.

Catherine only uses high quality archival materials in her work to ensure the work is created to the highest standards.
