Commission a pet portrait

Commission a Painting

Working from your favourite photograph, I'll create a realistic and lifelike portrait of your best friend. I can paint any type of animal or bird ~ not just cats and dogs!


1. Choose a photograph of your pet. It’s very important to provide a high quality, high resolution photo, so that I can capture every tiny detail. The eyes are a very important element of the portrait, so I have to be able to see them clearly (unless they are usually hidden by fur). I need to see and approve the photo before I can accept a commission.

2. A deposit of £25 is required to secure your booking in my diary and I will confirm the timescale with you at the time of booking. Current turnaround time is approximately 3-4 weeks.

3. The balance will be payable on completion of the portrait and only if you are 100% happy with the finished piece. I will keep you updated as I work with regular progress photos, so you can watch it come to life.

The price is for the portrait only. I don't supply mounts or frames as there are just too many different preferences in styles, and I think it's much better to use a local framer so you can get exactly what you want.

All portraits are very carefully wrapped and packaged to ensure their safe arrival, and are shipped with insurance and tracking.

Current pricing for 2020 is as follows:~

A4 : £320
A3 : £490
A2 : £700

A4 is really only suitable for a head and neck portrait for one pet. For multiple pets and full body paintings, I would suggest A3 or larger.

Custom sizing is available ~ contact me for a quote.

Postage is charged at £10 for UK customers and £20 for International.
