Patricia Krueger, Portrait Artist

Commission a Portrait

When I put together a portrait of a person’s life, I will use many various photos in order to tell that person’s story. Therefore it is very important to make sure that you include as many photos as possible documenting events, people, history, etc. as long as it has something to do with the person and their life or your life. Also please make sure that the photos are sharp and clear.

Portrait prices start at $1,800.00 for a 16” x 20”, head and shoulders, framed, and go up from there depending on the degree of detail and size. Insurance, and shipping and handling are an additional charge.

To commission a portrait you have three options:

Digital Image Requirements

I require that images be of at least 4” X 5” in physical size at 300 dpi resolution or larger. The image should preferably be in JPG format or most other types of image formats as long as they are 4” X 5” or larger in physical size and at a resolution of 300 dpi or larger. When in doubt, send the largest image possible at the highest resolution your camera can take. Do not apply any borders or sharpening. I will also accept a CD or DVD ROM if you need to provide a lot of references. The more photos, the better it is to be able to put a story together.


Black and white and color prints should be 4” X 6” or larger in size. Historic photographs can be of any size. If sending by mail or other delivery service, please make sure that the photographs are adequately protected. If you would like your photographs returned, please include a stamped, self-addressed envelope of suitable size.
