Pet Portrait Commissioning Process

For a detailed description of how my custom pencil portraits works, pop over to my Commissioning Process page. It describes my pencil portraits commission process from the initial contact with my client, through to the handmade bespoke framing and packing of my pet portraits. It hopefully gives my prospective clients an idea of how everything works. The page is set out with lots of lovely photos of my portraits to view.

Framing and Engraved Plaques

Framing with a mount / matt under glass is essential for my pet portraits. Whether leaving everything for me to arrange for you with my framers, or you use your own, my pencil portraits need to be protected. There is plenty of choice when it comes to framing, so why not hop on to my framing page to give you a few ideas for your framing »

Dear Melanie,

I picked up my pencil portrait today and I have to tell you it is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!!! You have captured her spirit beautifully and the kindness she had in her soul shone through those big brown eyes.

You are IMMENSELY talented portrait artist, I cannot thank you enough. I was quite emotional opening it but they were happy tears, it almost felt as though she was back with me, words cannot express my gratitude.

I am delighted that Teasel appears on your website too, HUGE SMILE, she had that endearing scruffy look about her. Through you we have the most BEAUTIFUL tribute of our very very special little lady. It will take pride of place in our lounge.

Kindest regards, Paula
