Select from several highly accomplished portrait artists styles and KAB Gallery Director, Kerry-Anne Blanket will assist directly as intermediary between you and the artist to ensure the perfect style and result. Whether you prefer a realist or more expressive portrait, we can help you select the right artist. For portraits, we know that you need an established professional artist already practiced within the genre and part of important collections and/or are winners of important prizes.

Pricing varies depending on the style, level of detail, size, and subject matter.

KAB Gallery will work with you throughout the project so you can always feel comfortable sitting for the artist, know that we are available to discuss any concerns along the way. Feedback is always welcome throughout the process.

Our team can also assist you with framing and coordination of the delivery.
