Portrait Artist Jean-Marie..



he creation of a portrait is an important decision, and one that should be enjoyable and exciting. And while it does take some planning, the portrait can be created with little effort on your part.

Our first step toward the creation of your portrait is to meet and plan the size, pose and other details. Then, a number of photographs may be taken in different outfits and settings, after which we will review the photographs and discuss the composition.

Since I usually have several paintings in progress, and drying time is necessary, it takes from eight to 12 weeks to complete a portrait, depending on its size and the number of subjects. Once finished, I will deliver the framed painting for the official unveiling. We will discuss frame options during the final stages of the portrait. 

When creating a portrait in oil, I use the very finest Belgium linen or cotton duck canvas, and highest quality paints available.

In a rush for your portrait gift? Custom made Gift Certificates are available. 


Please contact Jean-Marie Chapman for pricing information.


Fees begin at $4000 for a single-subject head and shoulders portrait of average complexity, painted approximately life-size. All portraits are priced after the individual requirements for the project are discussed. Fees increase proportionally for half-figure, three quarter-figure and full-figure poses and may vary according to the complexity of the background. Discounts are extended for multiple subjects in the same portrait.



Starting at $1200 - oil portrait, head and shoulders.

Starting at $2,500 - full body portrait.





There is a charge of 50% of the initial price for each additional figure on canvas. Payment of one-half the total amount  is due at the signing of the agreement. The balance is due at the completion of the painting.

I would be happy to discuss creating special backgrounds, such as floral arrangements, columns and wall hangings, or including a beloved pet or a photo of a loved one (painting within a painting).

I look forward to meeting with you.

Thank you for considering my work.
