Commission Process

I offer many different commissions, but mainly pet portraiture. As I work from photographs you can easily E-mail me your images so I can take a look and discuss requirements. Although this is an easy process, the key to having a stunning portrait is having a good quality photo.

      * Photo's should be clear, in-focus with good detail, close up and not over exposed (too bright to see detail).

After I have received your photo or photos, I will get back to you to discuss style, size and background paper colour.

Once all this has been discussed and agreed, I will need a 25% non refundable booking fee, to confirm your booking in my diary with the balance being paid on completion. I am also happy to accept payment by instalments.

Please see Terms & Conditions before booking.


I use very high quality materials that are archival and will not fade over time to ensure your new artwork can be enjoyed for many years to come.
