"Fiona gave outstanding service throughout the whole process, she captured the personality of both of my dogs perfectly. I am a big fan of the medium that she uses, and I thought all of my notes and photos would be overwhelming but Fiona took everything in her stride. 10 out of 10 - I can’t thank her enough."

How to order a pet portrait

  • Send me an e-mail with a bit about the pet you’d like me to paint, and whether you’d like your portrait to be painted or drawn in pencil.

  • Include a few photos. At least 5 photos is a good start but you can send as many as you like. It’s important to send good photos - I've written a guide about what photos work best, click here to have a look.

  • We'll decide on a size and discuss what you're looking for, then I'll book you a slot in my diary. A deposit of 50% of the total cost is due at this stage to secure the commission (with the other 50% due on completion).

  • I'll start with lots of sketches, and I'll figure out what I think will work best for the portrait. I’ll e-mail you a couple of detailed sketches, and together we'll decide which will work best.

  • The finished piece is then created, and when it's done I'll e-mail you a photo. You’ll have the opportunity for small changes to be made if needed. When you are totally happy, the final payment is due & we'll arrange postage, and that's it!

If you'd like to see a more detailed breakdown of how I create my pet portraits, read my blog post about my process (complete with photos!).

There is usually a waiting list of about 2-3 weeks. If you do need something in a hurry just ask - chances are I’ll be able to fit you in!
**I am currently taking orders for Pet Portraits needed for Christmas 2019!**
 

"My friend absolutely loved the painting of Hugo - almost all of us ended up in tears when she got it! I honestly don't think I could have got more of a special gift."
