Pet Portraits

Custom Pet Portraits

Commission a Pet Portrait of your four legged companion, or, gift one to the animal lover in your life. My creative pet portraits also make excellent birthday and christmas presents or, for that matter, a great gift all year round!

I’ve been a pet lover and owner all my life. It’s given me a humbling insight into the eternally enthusiastic soul behind their eyes and I can really appreciate what these little fur balls mean to us. This all helps me to better understand what makes them tick, and to capture their true character in my pet portraits.

There’s nothing more gratifying than presenting an owner with a painting of their beloved pet. They’re family, and I for one couldn’t imagine my life without my dog.

Gift Cards are also available from my shop if you’d like the recipient to be involved in the portrait process: Click here

 

If I’ve already completed a pet portrait for you and you’d like to order extra copies, visit the Pet Portrait Shop.

Framed And Mounted

Framed portraits are available in a selection of frames with a 45mm mount

 

Frame Styles

I've deliberately chosen frames that are neutral and minimalist to compliment the majority of decors. Examples of the standard frames that're available are below.
However, as all frames are made to order they can be customised to suit. Perhaps you'd like a different colour frame or mount? Or perhaps you'd like a different thickness of mount? My framer has 100's of styles available. Just let me know and I'll do my best to find something for you. I can also send you a mock-up to give you an idea of how your finished portrait will look.

How does it work?

Once you’ve chosen your preferred option above, there are a few simple steps to follow to get your pet portrait commission started:

Step 1
Get In Touch
If you’d like me to create a pet portrait, the first step is to get in touch with me and let me know what you’d like.
Once you’ve contacted me, I’ll be back in touch to get the ball rolling. We’ll go over some of your pet’s particulars, such as their breed and name, as well as any creative preferences.

Step 2
Send me some photographs of your pet
I work from photographs of your pet to create my pet portraits. Click here for some tips and advice on which photos work best for a portrait. Please bear these in mind when selecting photographs to send to me.
Photos can be uploaded via the contact form on the get in touch page.

Step 3
Updates
Then, once I’ve started painting your pet portrait, I can send you an update or two if you’d like, just to make sure you’re happy with how it’s going.

Step 4
Completion
I’ll let you know when your pet portrait is complete. I’ll then send you an invoice. I’ll also send you a final proof of your pet portrait for approval. Unless you’d prefer to keep it a surprise!
Once payment has been received, your pet portrait will be sent off for production/framing. Then, as soon as my framers have completed production, I’ll update your order with delivery tracking details.

Payment Methods

I accept all major credit & debit cards, Google and Apple Pay, and PayPal.

I also accept Klarna, which is an interest free way to spread the cost.
Credit status depending, you could choose to either buy now and pay in 30 days, or spread the cost over 3 months. For example, an order amount of £125 could be spread as follows:
Payment 1 at time of order: £41.66
