The commission process

My process of creating a custom pet portrait involves studying multiple photographs of your pet so I can get to know their true personality. While a photograph can capture a single moment in time, a one of a kind, hand-drawn portrait of your pet captures their heart and soul and the special quality that makes them unique.

I will work with you to create a beautiful artwork of your pet.

The first step is to choose a photo.

If there isn’t one photo that captures everything about your pet, it’s not a problem! Several photos can be used to capture the essence of your pet.

choose a size and paper colour

A4 – $250

A5 – $125

Petite – $60

If you would like the portrait in pastel pencils then choose a paper colour. Click on the button below.

** If you are not sure which colour paper, I am happy to create a ‘mock up’ on different backgrounds.

Then…get in touch!

Alternatively, complete the ‘Contact‘ form and I will get in touch with you.

What happens next?

Once all the details are finalised, your portrait will be scheduled in. Prior to beginning the portrait, I will confirm all the details just in case you would like to change any preferences.

Then I pick up my pencils and the portrait comes to life!

Progress photos are emailed throughout so that you can see the portrait take shape and also to obtain your thoughts and feedback to ensure you will be totally satisfied with the end result.
