Commissioning a portrait is a very special and personal experience. Also, it can make a wonderful gift for someone special with a beloved pet.
I work from your photos so a high-quality image is important, the more detail I can see, the better the portrait. Choosing the best reference photo makes a huge difference to the portrait, I’ll take a look at your photos and work with you to decide which would be the best one from a drawing perspective.
We may not have the best quality photos of our much-loved departed pets, but I can work with inferior photos, as well as reference photos in this case. We will work together to be sure a likeness is created.
I strive to capture that unique character that makes your pet so special.
I ask for a non-refundable booking fee upfront and the remaining balance is payable upon completion and prior to pick up or shipping.
If you are thinking about booking a commissioned portrait of your special pet here is everything you need to know. The mediums I currently work in are Graphite (black and white) and Professional Colored Pencil.
All drawings are completed using only high-quality, archival materials and will be mounted in a double-mat mount ready to be framed. Also included is a Certificate of Authenticity and Care and Framing Suggestions.
I draw from your photos. I will require that you email me high-quality photos, 3-5 if possible, but I will take as many as you send me. I will endeavor to draw as much detail as possible to capture your pet’s unique personality.
Your portrait will be double-mounted and ready for framing. It will not be framed as framing is a personal choice and depends on your home interior, so I will leave the framing to you.
Please plan on an average turnaround of 30 days. This will depend on your particular portrait. Please let me know if you have a certain deadline to meet. I will do everything I can to meet it.
A 50% booking fee will be required to schedule your portrait in my booking calendar. I accept major credit cards, PayPal, and Venmo. I do not accept personal checks.
Once this has been completed, you will send me your reference photos. We will discuss the photos, and decide together which is best, and any other details you require. If I cannot use your photos, I will let you know then. You may send me new photos, or you may book a photo shoot.
Once your portrait drawing is complete, I will send you an email to request final payment and your mailing address.
I will personally securely wrap and ship your painting once payment is received. Local pick up or free delivery can be arranged.
