STEP 1 – SIZES
I offer four different sizes from small to x-large, your choice may depend on the number of pets in your portrait and your budget. You can also choose whether you would like a head/neck portrait portrayed like a floating head, or extended to the edge of the page, or a full body portrait.

STEP 2 – PHOTOS
Choose a clear photograph which conveys your pet’s personality. Check out my Photograph Guide page for tips with choosing that perfect picture! My main rule of thumb is “the better the photo, the better the portrait”. If you can’t decide, you can email me your photographs and we can discuss together.
I don’t normally do backgrounds as I prefer the focus to be on your pet, however if you require a background please let me know and I will be happy to offer this.
STEP 3 – CONTACT ME
Once you have your photos together and decided upon the type of portrait you would like please contact me with your requirements via my submission form. Please also mention if you have any specific deadlines such as a birthday or anniversary.
Please note, I usually have a waiting list but I will confirm the approximate time scale upon your enquiry, and I will always try my best to juggle my schedule to fit in a special occassion. Once I have replied to your submission you can send me your photographs.
STEP 4 – PAYMENT
Once I have seen your photographs and we have discussed your portrait you are ready to place your order. Payment is made in full or via monthly instalments to secure your slot in my client waiting list. The portrait will not be started until payments are complete. Payments can be made securely online by bank transfer or credit/debit card via Paypal. Please read my terms and conditions .
STEP 5 – PROGRESS
I will email you just before I start your portrait so you can watch the progress on my Facebook Page and Instagram Page . This will give you the opportunity to make comments along the way and see how your portrait is coming together. Please let me know if you you would prefer me not to post on social media, in case it spoils a surprise gift.
STEP 6 – COMPLETION
Once I have cpmpleted the portrait I will email you a full scan for your approval. At this stage I may be able to make minor adjustments. Upon full satisfaction of the finished portrait you will be invoiced for the deliveryu of your portrait, if you do not live in the UK. Your portrait will then be securely wrapped, beautifully packaged and shipped out to you via 24-hour courier (UK) or by International Courier.
STEP 7 – MOUNTING/MATTING
A stunning way to finish your portrait off is to have your portrait mounted/matted with a backing board. All my picture mounts are cut to a deep 45 degree bevel cut to give your portrait more depth, are 100% acid free, using conservation mountboard which is essential to guarantee protection and longevity of your portrait, guarding against staining. All my mounts comply to the Fine Art Trade Guild Conservation level.
