WORK

Do you sell prints of your works?

I did have a print shop but it’s closed for now. If you’ve seen a work of mine that you’d like to have as a print, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Do you make custom portraits?

Yes, I do. For enquiries contact me at jutta@kootutmurut.com.

What do I need for ordering a custom portrait?

You will need a reference photo. The best photo is large size with enough details. The more details I see, the more I can draw them. Professional lighting or natural light (from a window, for example) is much better than full frontal flash which tends to flatten out the subject. If you are unsure which photo would make best reference, you can send me a few of your favorites and I’ll let you know.

How much do you charge for a custom portrait?

It’s difficult to give a quote before seeing the reference photo as it depends on the amount of detail, size of the portrait and technique. Is it just pencil, or with color? In general, prices start at 120 euros for a simple pencil drawing, size A4. Please email me for a more detailed quote.
