Commissions

I work in graphite pencils or pastel pencils for each commission. If you would like your artwork in a different medium, please do get in touch.

Commission bookings for 2020 are open.

Please allow 2 – 3 months for a piece to be completed. If your commission is a gift, please let me know dates and I will try to fit it into my schedule.

How it works

1. Photos

Capturing the essence and character of your pet within your photos is really helpful for me when I come to creating your pet’s portrait. Taking multiple pictures from different angles and distances will help show texture and detail. Try to take the best photos you can and when it comes to booking your commission, we can discuss which photos to use. Download my photo guide for a few tips.

2. Sizing

I offer a few different sizes for your artwork, all of which fit into standard sized frames. The smallest size I offer is 25cm x 25cm (10” x 10”), this is so I can provide a good level of detail. If you would like a custom sized piece, please contact me so we can discuss your requirements.

3. Booking your place

After we have agreed size and images to use as reference, it will be time to book. A non refundable deposit of £35 will be required to book your place on the client list. This initial deposit will be deducted from the final bill.

4. The start of your commission

In order for me to start your piece I will require 50% of the total payment up front, the remaining amount will be billed at the end of the project.

5. Work Begins

Once the first payment has been received, I can start work on your artwork. Commissioning your own artwork is an exciting process, so I will keep you updated with photos along the way.

6. Finishing your artwork

As I come close to finishing your artwork, I may be able to make small tweaks to your piece. At the end of the project I will send you a high res photo of your artwork to sign off. Once you have approved it,  I will require the remaining balance.

7. Postage

Once full payment has been made and received, your artwork will be packaged and posted within 7 working days by Royal Mail or courier.
