for yourself or as a gift?

Here is how...

Commission process

1. Get in touch with the form below

Get in Touch

Thank You For Your Message!

Once you get in touch with me I will get back to you to discuss the details, such as size, medium (color pencil, graphite or charcoal), multiple subjects,  background etc.


I will give you a detailed quote referring to my price guide per medium and size.

I will also give you an estimated completion date.

This will be subject to my workload at a given time, so please be sure to get in touch in advance if it's meant as a gift for a special occasion. 

If you're looking to surprise a friend with a gift but don't have any photos of their pet, consider purchasing a Gift Voucher instead.

2. Choose the best reference photo

Your choice of photo plays a crucial role in the outcome of your portrait. The quality of the input directly affects the quality of the final result, and ultimately, your satisfaction.

Consider pose and composition - When choosing a photograph to work from, it's important to consider if it truly captures the essence of the subject. Look for a picture that not only showcases their physical appearance but also reflects their personality and mannerisms. This will ensure that the final result truly represents them in the best possible way.

Eyes are critically important – when capturing a portrait, it's crucial to consider the eyes as they play a vital role. The best is when the eyes are open and capturing the light.

Image quality - the level of detail in your portrait is crucial, and it all depends on the resolution of the image. The higher the resolution, the better the quality of your portrait will be.

If the information provided above seems overwhelming, don't worry! When you contact me, feel free to send multiple photos, and we can work together to select the best one for the drawing.

3. Confirm your booking 

My commission process involves a 30% payment upfront, with the remaining balance due before I ship out the finished artwork. I'll send you a photo of the drawing to make sure you're satisfied with it before you make the final payment.

I'll provide you with a start date for the portrait and an estimate of how long it will take to complete. The completion time can vary between 27-35 days, depending on the size and complexity of the work.

4. Completion & Payment

Once the artwork is finished, I'll send you a final scan for your approval. If you're completely satisfied with the outcome, I'll invoice you for the remaining balance and any applicable shipping costs.

After that, I'll carefully hand deliver or ship your portrait to ensure it arrives safely and in impeccable condition. As soon as the package is sent, I'll provide you with the tracking link so you can keep an eye on its journey!
