Price and FAQ

Size Guide
Small sizes - Ideal for 1 - 2 studies
Medium sizes - Ideal for 1 - 4 studies
Large studies - Ideal for multiple combinations

Sizes are custom, if you are looking for something specific, please let me know. Canvases are generally gallery-wrap - the image wraps around the edge of the 3/4" stretcher bars. Large pieces 2'x3' and up) use 1-1/2" stretcher bars.

The pencil portraits are drawn to fit the size of paper you have ordered. Head studies will have approximately a 2 inch space between the image and the edge of the paper. Portraits with backgrounds will be drawn with approximately 1 inch space around the edge of the paper. This will allow the framer to attach a mount / matte to the portrait and you will have gained the largest possible sized drawing on the size you have ordered.

Shipping
Due to the high value of our portraits, we choose to send them with the best possible service so that we know we can rely on them 100% to deliver our portraits safely, securely and in good time. We use a Canada Post 24 hour tracked service for all Canadian deliveries and a 5 - 7 day tracked service for overseas deliveries with an estimated arrival date.
 
Delivery Time
I often work on approximately a 1 month waiting list for the acrylic on canvas paintings and a 2 week waiting list for the pencil drawings. Waiting times can be longer before the holiday season. Please contact me for my current schedule or if you have specific deadlines.

Deposit
As all work is custom drawn or painted, I require approximately half of the total cost of your portrait as a deposit. I accept all major credit, debit cards through  Paypal. Canadian customers can pay via bank transfer (email me for an invoice).
Commission Information
I work from your photos for your portrait. A good range of clear photos will enable me to create a stunning drawing or painting. Take or find photos that capture your pets personality and character well. My expertise lies in reproducing and interpreting your photo and establishing the characteristics and personality of individual animals. The portraits I produce are unique paintings or drawings of 'your pet' - not just any pet but 'your pet', so photos are key. The highest resolution possible, digital is preferred to a photo print. The photos should be sharp and well focused. Choose a photo that captures personality. Set your digital camera to fine or the highest possible quality setting. The bigger the subject in the photo the better. Take your photos from the subjects eye level, unless you are looking for a specific pose. I can work from any photo, but keep in mind that well focused shots, where the subject is the largest thing in the photo, will result in the best possible portrait.

Contact Us
Once you have collected or taken your photos, the next step is to send me any photos you have at a good resolution, letting us know a little about your requirements. You can email your photos or upload them via our online form, you can email me to discuss your requirements.

All photos are returned along with the finished portrait, or if photos are sent for my approval and I am unable to work with them, they will always be returned free of charge. If you are sending any treasured photos in the postal system, please take copies of them just in case of damage via the postal system.
