Commissions

Pets are such a large part of our lives; I certainly don’t know what I’d do without mine. Let me capture your pet’s delightful character in a timeless watercolour painting.

It takes many hours to complete each work, depending on the scale of the piece, the number of pets in the portrait and the background detail required. I naturally paint very detailed work using small brushes and I love capturing the transitions from light to dark within a painting to emphasize the 3D effect.

Pricing

As each portrait is individual, it is difficult to create a ‘one price fits all’ guide. To receive a personalised quote, please e-mail me in the first instance and I will gladly assess your photographs. I like to know a little about each individual pet and what makes them special. Do you have an idea of the approximate size you would like? Would you like background detail?

The final price will include mounting. I will estimate shipping costs when I know your location.

Deposit

A 25% deposit is required to book a place on my waiting list. The remaining balance is due on completion of the work, before it is shipped.

Progress

I will update throughout the painting period with photographs of the work via e-mail. I want you to be 100% satisfied with your painting.

Framing

All paintings are supplied mounted but unframed. The mount will be chosen by me to compliment the colours of the painting and is included in the cost. The mount also helps to protect the painting whilst in transit. Please note that it is easy for your chosen framer to change the mount on receipt if you wish.

It is often underestimated just how important framing is. A good frame can make a beautiful painting even better. We recommend that a frame is chosen to match the colours and mood of the painting rather than the surrounding decor.

It is possible for me to have your painting framed at extra cost. Please contact me for further details if required.

Prints

You may require prints of your special portrait to give to family and friends. If this is the case, please let me know your requirements before we ship the finished portrait so we can arrange for this to be done, at extra cost. Images are giclee printed onto high-quality archival paper.

Vouchers

We can also send vouchers to your loved one, which is especially useful if my waiting list means that a painting cannot be completed for a specific date. This means that your loved one can still receive a surprise and look forward to commissioning their special gift.

All of my paintings are completed on a first-come, first-served basis, but I will try to accommodate special birthdays, anniversaries etc where I can.

Vouchers are supplied as A6 cards and are available in any denomination. I can send an invoice for the amount via PayPal or they can be paid for by direct bank transfer. Please contact me for further details.

Shipping

I am able to ship anywhere in the world.

Please contact me and I will estimate your shipping costs.
