I am often requested to paint small animals such as cats and dogs by their owners.  This is a great privilege, creating a piece that will capture a moment in time and be a forever memory.

Commissioning Artwork

I will happily paint any animal be it a pet, wild or farm animal. Sizes are flexible. Postage is £11 (unframed, for framed artwork prices can be advised, depending on frame size)  within the UK which will allow me to send your artwork via Special Delivery so that it’s insured. Although only UK prices are listed, I will happily take payment from and post to any country. Please also note that I am happy for payments to be made in installments when requested.

Advice on photos to send me:

As I work directly from photos, it is imperative that we try and organise high resolution photos for me to work from so that I can create a really detailed portrait for you. I require good quality, close-up headshots preferably taken outside as the natural light picks up all the details in the fur. Please also try and take the photos at eye level. An ordinary camera will do or even a smart phone camera so long as the pics are taken in natural light. Send as many as you like and I will be able to choose the one I think will work best for the painting. For all my artworks I use archival quality paper, paint and pens which means your paintings should last a lifetime. However, in order to increase the longevity of your artwork it is very important that you keep it out of direct sunlight and if possible choose an acid-free mount when framing.
