Pet portraits are created using your photos for reference, so the most important thing you'll need is access to several good, clear images of your pet. Please take time to read the helpful info about selecting photos.
My standard pet portraits are unframed, depicting the pet's head and shoulders, and have a plain or mottled background. With the exception of those painted on canvas, portraits are supplied mounted within a soft white conservation mount and backing board, ready for framing. For the complete package, I can also take care of framing for you, allowing you to hang your portrait as soon as it arrives.
If you'd like a full-body portrait and/or any other request, please ask for a quote.
Before booking a commission, you'll want to think about your budget and the style of portrait you'd prefer. Prices for unframed portraits in each medium are listed on the prices page.
Book early. Single portraits take up to a week to complete and I can rarely start immediately. If your portrait is a gift, I recommend contacting me several weeks (months, even) in advance and, for Christmas gifts, before September. If you do have an urgent order, I may be able to fit it in, so contact me asap with the date you need it by and I'll let you know.
