- Commission Me -
Upon placing your order, we will discuss what kind of artwork you would like. I can create a wide variety of looks, from captivating white on black paper to big and bold paintings.
Drawings will generally take about 2-3 weeks plus shipping time and acrylic/oil paintings will take longer depending on their size. I am UK based but the artwork can be shipped internationally. Shipping can take up to 21 days but it is usually less time. I can have busy periods so there may be a waiting list for commissions. I do take into account special occasions for commissions but as this is not always possible, please contact me in plenty of time.
Photographs of pets -
· Good quality images with lots of detail will give the best results.
· Close ups of the animals’ nose and eyes will be appreciated.
· Poor images can be worked with but the results will not be as detailed.
· Please take photos outside but not in harsh light.
· Please email me the photos if possible. They can be posted but the waiting time will not start until I have received the photos. The photos will be sent back with the finished artwork.
· Multiple photos would be ideal.
· Items like collars and harnesses can be removed in the drawings/paintings.
Wildlife Art -
· I can paint from your photos as long as the copyright of the photo belongs to you.
· I have an extensive range of wildlife photos that I have taken in Africa, wildlife and bird parks that I can use as reference photos.
· If you like a photo which comes from a paid site, I can try to get the permission to paint the photo but this will result in an extra charge.
· If you have any particular wildlife scenes that you are interested in, we can discuss your preferences.
· A 25% deposit is required to secure the order and the remainder will be required once the artwork has been completed.
