COMMISSION BOOKINGS NOW OPEN FOR CHRISTMAS …..

   Commissioning a portrait of your beloved animal makes a fantastic gift or keepsake with a very personal touch. It will be and remain a unique and original record of a much loved pet that will stand the test of time.

I also offer a complete framing service for the paintings I produce if required.

I work from photographs to create your painting, the photos need to be clear and show up detail. If you have sadly lost your animal I can view the photos you have and can advise if they are suitable to work from. It is better if you have a selection of photographs with your favourite one for the portrait indicated. If you would prefer a different background to the one on the photograph this is not a problem, plain backgrounds are also popular as they allow the viewers attention to be drawn exclusively to the animal. If you cannot decide or are unsure which is most suitable for your chosen photograph- I am here to help!

I produce work in pastels onto specialist paper. I use only high quality materials. Pastels give a very soft effect which people have enjoyed for many 100’s of years, however a pastel painting needs to be framed behind glass in order to protect the painting.

Important note! If the photograph you wish to use for the pose for the portrait has been taken by a professional photographer you will need to get their written consent to use the photograph for this, as they will still own the copyright of the image.
