Thanks for your interest in commissioning me!
There are a few things to take note of before I can produce a fabulous portrait:
A small biography about your four-legged friend
Do they have a favourite toy? Do they have a cute head tilt? Is one ear lower than the other? Any quirks, characteristics etc will add more personality to the portrait and they’re always gratefully appreciated; it helps me to get a real feel for them.
Some great high-resolution images
Out of focus, too dark or blurry will make it difficult to get a great representation of the model in question I’m afraid! These photos are best taken at eye level of the canine or feline in question, but ideally a good, clear image of your pooch or feline will suffice.
Finally, specific requirements for colour, added accessories and so on
A necklace, some earrings, a crown or perhaps a vintage headscarf? Do let me know.

Postage and packaging
This depends on which country…
If you are in the US, then the cost for a single portrait is $35. I use a traceable courier service, which is insured and arrives within 4-6 working days of being posted.
If in the UK, then the cost is $15 and will be sent recorded delivery.
For everywhere else I can give a very accurate quote once I know the destination. The cost of postage will change slightly depending on how many portraits I am posting as it is calculated by weight.
