Ordering a portrait couldn't be simpler. There are a few variables that may or may
not apply to you but I am here to help you through the process step by step and am
always on hand to answer any questions you may have.
First of all, decide what type of portrait you would like. You can do this by looking through the prices page and also see some examples of previous work in the gallery. Don't forget to consider a themed portrait if you're after something a bit more unique. I'm always happy to help put together ideas for these if you aren't sure what theme to go for!
The next step is to email me with your chosen style and size, as well as sending
If your photos aren't quite right for me to work from I will let you know straight away so we can discuss options. Ideally images should be as large and as clear as possible and show your pets face as you would want it drawn. However please don't worry if you only have old,small or pre digital photographs as I may still be able to work from them. Advice regarding sending photos via email or non-
If you have a favourite photograph of your pet, please make sure you mention this when sending them as I will always aim to work from this. Alternatively if you are unsure, I will advise which photograph I think will work best.
I often ask that you send multiple photos so I can get a better idea of your pets colouring and markings as well as being able to see their personalities.
If you need the portrait done by a certain date you must let me know straight away
so I can confirm whether this can be done in time. Even when I am fully booked I
am often able to move work around and may still be able to fit you in. However please
do try and book in as far in advance as possible. As a guideline most gift commissions
are booked around 8 weeks in advance and for Christmas commissions around 3-
Any timeframes mentioned at the initial enquiry stage are likely to change if you do not book in straight away and will be discussed once your deposit has been received.
As soon as you are ready to go ahead with your portrait I require a 10% deposit to
book in. This is deducted from the total of your portrait. You will then have nothing
else to pay until the portrait is complete.
Once your portrait is finished I will send you a photograph for you to approve, and also send information regarding the remaining balance plus postage. If you live outside the UK please let me know as I may need to adjust the postage fees.
Your portrait will then be shipped flat, unmounted and unframed, courtesy of insured next day delivery. For 18” x 24” portraits postage will be more as these must be sent by courier but will still be posted flat and insured.
