commission a portrait

Let Me Immortalize Your Beloved Beast

Here's how it works:

  1. Peruse my Pricing List or visit my Etsy shop to learn about sizes and pricing options.

  2. Send me an email (or use the contact me form) and let me know you're interested in a custom portrait. Oh, and feel free to send me a bunch of photos of your beloved beast when you contact me. Speaking of photos: 

  3. Send me lots of photos of your pet. Photos must be in-focus, large and clear. The more details I can see I the photo, the more I can include in your portrait! Regretfully, I cannot work from blurry or low-quality photos. Feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns about your photos or if you’d like some help choosing the perfect picture.

  4. I will then produce several cropping and size ideas from your photos and send you quotes. Then you pick your favorite.

  5. I will send you an invoice via Paypal or create a custom Etsy listing for you.

  6. I start work on the final painting, sending you photographic updates at every point along the way from underpainting to final details.

  7. Once finished, I ship to you a signed and dated painting of your pet that’s ready to hang wherever your heart desires!

Gift certificates are also available if you’d like to give the gift of a pet portrait to someone you love. Gift certificates can be purchased in my Etsy shop. You can also contact me to discuss what you’d like.

I also offer custom throw pillows, coasters and greeting cards featuring your pet's portrait with the purchase of a custom painting. Just let me know if this is something you're interested in and I'll send you a quote.
