I love painting bespoke wildlife portraits for my clients, or pet portraits, and have been working as a commission-based artist for 7 years. I offer portraits which are a collaboration between my clients love for animals and my own artistic style. My work is painted onto 100% cotton watercolour paper, and arrives with you unmounted and unframed to allow you the freedom to select your own

How to book your commission
Firstly, it's time to have a dig through your photo albums and find some high quality photographs of the subject. For more information about what photos I need click here. For general animal commissions, I am able to source reference photos.
Once you've decided on a size and found some photos, then it's time to send in a commission enquiry via the form linked below. We'll then have a chat via email to discuss your requirements.
To secure your place in my books, I require a 50% non-refundable deposit which is payable via card or PayPal. Once I have received the full deposit, your commission is booked in for my next available space. Payment plans are available and discussed on an individual basis with my clients to tailor them to their needs.
What happens next?
When your commission slot rolls around, I will get in touch and agree a design with you; I'll also send you updates as necessary throughout the process.
Upon completion, you'll receive a final photo of the painting to approve. At this point the remaining 50% of the commission is due. Once paid, I will post your painting out, usually in a tube to protect your artwork as best I can. All paintings are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, and posted out unframed and unmounted to give you the freedom to choose your own.
UK postage is included within the cost of your commission but international postage typically works out at an additional £25-£40. All commissioned works are send via a tracked service so you can keep an eye on your painting while it makes it's way to you.
The time it takes me to complete your portrait will depend on a number of factors; it can take anything from 3 weeks to a few months so do make sure you book in plenty of time if your portrait is needed for a deadline.
