Commissions

Commission Status: CLOSED

I have done a number of pet portraits in the past to include horses, dogs, and cats. I am willing to draw any animal you may hold dear! Pet portraits make excellent gifts to fellow animal lovers. I am often asked to do memorial pieces of a pet that recently passed. It is a great pleasure and privilege to be given the opportunity to create an image for someone to honor their pet forever. Don’t have a pet? That’s o.k. I love ALL animals and will draw wildlife and other critters if requested! Heck, I’ll even draw mythical creatures or cryptids if you’d like.

******************************

At the moment I offer two sizes:

    • 9 in. x 12 in. $185 +$10 shipping (This size will typically be a full head shot and/or partial body)

******************************

    • 5 in. x 7 in.$115 + $10 shipping (This size will be a close crop of the face or around the eye)

******************************

Typically, my approach is to do an up close pose or head shot. I concentrate on facial detail, especially around the eyes. The more zoomed in, the more detail. In my most recent work, I have been adding color to the eyes to make it even more personal to your pet and to add a little more *pop* to the portrait. To achieve a high level of detail, a clear reference picture is needed. Blurry, dark or over-exposed photos are not acceptable reference photos.

I will typically leave a plain background, to draw full attention to your pet. When working with close crops, a background is rarely necessary but I am willing to add one if needed to complete an image. Portraits will be left unmatted and unframed. Shipping cost is additional.

A 50% down payment is required before any portrait is started. Full payment must be received before the finished product is shipped.

There may be a waiting list. If you would like a portrait to give as a gift (wedding, birthday, holidays) please contact me a couple months in advance to ensure your piece can be completed and shipped in time. A custom fine art piece is not a last minute gift!

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me anyway that works for you…
