How to order
I aim to make the process of ordering a pet portrait as easy as possible for you wherever you are in the world. My clients come from all corners of the UK and overseas and you will find testimonials of my previous work on this site. You may also rest assured I pride myself on having a good relationship with you the client and also the pet, having enthusiasm for every pet I meet. I have found even through my MA studies, artwork is all about experience and the artist has to set up this arena for experience between artwork and viewer and in my case, between artist, client, pet AND the artwork
Satisfaction is my ultimate priority. You need to be happy to hang your pet portrait on the wall and treasure the memory of this special best friend.
All my portraits are painted from good, clear photographs, on which more information can be found here. No digital manipulation is used to create any of my pet portraits. I prefer to replicate from one photo but work from 2/3 photos to make sure I have the correct colour too.
I can also offer framing with Brian Hector at Thorian Framing. Brian has an amazing eye for what frame suits the painting even better than an artist. Once framed professionally your portrait is ready to hang and bring you a lifetime of happiness.
When it comes to my work, customers can be confident that many hours have gone into their commission. Whether you are interested in dog portraits, cat portraits, horse portraits or another pet, I aim to keep you involved in the creative process throughout with regular updates or if you prefer to wait and see a photo of the finished portrait just let me know.
It is common for there to be an 8-10 week waiting list for portraits to be completed because they involve many hours of detailed work and/or printing involved too when an iPet portrait. This is often longer at Christmas. Pet portraits artists tend to very busy leading up to the Christmas period so it is vital that you book early in order to avoid disappointment. I also offer gift vouchers for pet portraits if a last minute commission is not possible, or if you want to leave it to the recipient to choose their favourite photo for me to work from.
Please visit my price list to find out how much your pet portrait may cost. I try to offer portraits to suit different budget. My prices are based on time not size as I work better bigger, within 20×16”, although can work smaller, but smaller takes just as long as the bigger ones do, so my prices do not change according to size, but according to the medium I am using.
