Head and Shoulder Portraits of Animals and People

Working from large, clear photographs only. No small, blury, blown out photos – I can only paint as good as the photo. Professional photos will require written permission from the photographer prior to commencing artwork. To enquire please have several photos available for selection. Natural light always takes the best photos – no flash, to photograph people catch them unaware for a more natural looking photo with a more interesting profile rather than a forced smile and front on flat image.

Turn around time will depend on the size of the artwork and existing work load. If your planning your portrait as a gift please enquire well in advance to avoid disappointment.

50% deposit is required upon placing the order. This deposit is non-refundable once artwork is commenced. The final amount is to be paid prior to mailing or paid on collection. Postage at buyers expense.

All commissions are painted unframed, you will need to see your framer for your purposes, especially for pastel artwork which will need to be framed without touching the glass. I highly recommend a professional framer!
