Commissioning a pet portrait

I love capturing the spirit of animals. Take a look at some of the cats and doggies I've painted. If you want to commission a portrait, the process and prices are explained below. Let's have a brief call if you have any questions. I love hearing all about your fur babies.















Step 1   the Pet

Email some favorite photos of your pet to If you only have prints, I can scan them– you won’t have to worry about getting them back; I promise to handle with care. Make sure to include a decent close up shot of your pet’s eyes if you can. And tell me a bit about your pet’s personality. The more I know, the better chance I have of capturing his or her unique spirit.

STEP 2   THE decisions

Decide on the size and shape of the canvas that you want. And whether or not you want to frame the portrait. A gallery-wrapped canvas, which I frequently use, has a 1.25 inch deep edge, doesn’t require a frame and has a clean contemporary look. Email me for details at Think about your color preferences for background or color scheme–it’s OK to want a color that goes with your couch. Together we can work out the details.

Step 3   The prices

The smallest size is 12 x 12 at $350. Additional pets or detailed backgrounds cost a little more. I ask for a 50 percent deposit to start work.

12 x 12................$350.  

11 x 14................$400.  

16 x 20...............$550..  

20 x 20...............$650.  

18 x 24................$775.  

24 x 24................$895.

Larger sizes also me for pricing.

STEP 4   The Process

Once I start painting and am almost finished with the portrait, I will email you a photo of the painting for your feedback. Minor changes can be made at this point. After the portrait is finished I email you a photo again for final approval.  I want you to be completely happy with the end result! The final 50% (plus shipping) is due upon approval.
