Reference photos must be of a high resolution, they need to be clear in detail and be of good quality. If taking new photos, take tame to get the right photo for your portrait. Read my Photography Tips page for more details.
Why not send me your photos so that I can help you decide which would be best for a portrait? Upload them to the form below. Please avoid sending screen captures - send the original photo from your photos app.
I work to a waiting list and my drawings take time. My clients are always willing to wait to have their portrait drawn. A good quality, realistic drawing simply does take hours of work., so it's not always possible to meet all special dates.
In these situations, I have found the best way is to make as many arrangements as possible with my clients for the recipient so that they can surprise them with the arranged portrait with a personalized card on their special day.
This enables them to either opt for the photo and design that we have arranged, you choose or alternatively you can leave all of the arrangements to them.
If you would like to commission a drawing and card, I do need to see photos of the pet before hand to make sure I can work with your photos before going ahead with arranging the commission. Drop me an email with your ideas and we can discuss your requirements.
You can have the card sent to you to give personally, or direct to the recipient at their home address. The card size is a 7 x 5 inches Moonpig card and it will be sent First Class. I can send cards worldwide and you can see some previous examples of cards below.
