My commission book is now open and I’m accepting orders for 2022.

 

I’m an award-winning UK based artist and I have been offering pet-portraits and commissions since 2004. I have had hundreds of happy customers over the years with many repeat bookings. My aim is to provide you with a portrait of your horse or pet that you will treasure and bring years of happy memories.  Portraits are created from your photos using the highest quality professional grade materials in a combination of coloured pencil and pastel.

How to Order

Commissioning a portrait is really very simple and I’m always happy to answer any questions. You’ll need to contact me with your requirements, supply the photos you’d like me to work with and pay the 25% booking fee. Everything will be set out in writing and I’ll keep you updated every step of the way.

Ready to Frame

New for 2022 I’m offering a ‘Ready to Frame’ option in a range of standard frame sizes. These portraits will come with an off-white mount, ready to pop in the frame of your choice. These are ideal for special occasions and make it easy to gift your friends and family a portrait of their much loved animals. The Ready to Frame options are for single animals only and come with a white background as standard. The listed sizes are the size of the mount/frame and the image size will be smaller within this. The prices include UK Next Day Delivery shipping as standard.

10” x 12”                7” x 9”                   £255

Bespoke Sizes/Prices

This range of portrait sizes are supplied unmounted and unframed and can be any size (up to 20”x24”) to suit your requirements. I have included the most requested options but please ask for a personal quote if you have something specific in mind such as a square format, or a longer rectangle for a multiple portrait.  Portraits can be supplied on white or with a simple coloured background. Prices include UK Next Day Delivery shipping as standard.

Overseas Customers

I regularly ship Worldwide from the UK and will advise of any additional charges at the point of booking. Payment will be requested via a Paypal invoice which will deal with any currency conversion, and you don’t need a Paypal account to make payment. I don’t provide a firm price in different currencies as the exchange rate will fluctuate but can supply the Paypal exchange rate at the time of booking.

Your country may apply import taxes and fees and these remain the responsibility of the customer.

 

Delivery

I'll confirm when I expect to complete your portrait when you book and once started, will keep you up to date with regular work in progress photos via social media or email if you need to keep it a secret. If you have a specific date such as a birthday or for Christmas I'll do my best to accommodate your request. Gift vouchers are available too. All portraits are securely wrapped and delivered using a tracked & insured shipping service.

 

Photography

Your portrait is based on photographs that you supply and in order to create a likeness that’s full of character they need to be clear, in focus and showing your animals ‘best side’.  It’s important to be able to see the colour and expression in their eyes, and for the coat colour to be correct as I am reliant on the photo for accuracy. If you’re unsure as to their suitability I am always happy to advise and discuss options as required.

If you supply photographs that you didn’t take yourself please ensure that you have permission from the Photographer for me to work from them in order to comply with UK Copyright Law.
