I have fairly long booking list so saving your space can be essential, particularly if you have a specific date in mind to receive the portrait by. I ask for a £200 deposit and the remainder just prior to starting.
Usually clients email me their photos along with an idea of the size of portrait they are looking for. I create a mock up of how their portrait could look and email them a quote. I then follow the email with a secure private link to pay a deposit.
My payment system is completely secure, using Worldpay as my payment provider. I accept all major debit and credit cards including American Express. You can also call my studio on +44 (0)1559 384628 to place your order over the telephone. Once I have received your payment I will add your mock up to my booking list which you can see here - Booking Availability »

One of the most important aspects of commissioning a pencil pet portrait are your photos. I am unable to meet your pet, unless you bring them to our studio which you are always more than welcome to do if you are in the UK, but in the main photos are all I have to find out what you pet was really like. Photos are absolutely key and the better quality the photo, in reality, the better your drawing will be. In an ideal world digital camera photos are the best to work from, however I know all too well how easy it is to snap away with a mobile or tablet. I have created a Photography Tips Page with three examples of my artwork and client photos which I hope will give you a good insight into what I need photograph wise for a portrait. You are more than welcome to email your photos and I can let you know which would be best for a portrait. Photography Tips »
Many clients opt for my framing service and I work with a lovely framer called Amanda who makes all of my traditional style frames for my drawings using lovely quality woods and mounts / matts. Amanda can usually get hold of any type of moulding to match your home décor. If you are looking to have something really fancy I also work with a fabulous framing company in the UK who make all of our swept and moulded frames. They are hand made bespoke to the clients specifications. The frames come in gold, silver, gold or sliver leaf or can be painted any colour from the Farrow & Ball range.
