commissioned portraits

A commissioned piece of art is a very special undertaking, and is a beautiful,  thoughtful gift, either for someone special, or as a piece of unique artwork for your own home.


 It's not something that you undertake everyday, and it's important to have a chat about what kind of piece you would like, what you would like included,style, the finished size of picture, even where you think it will be eventually hung.

Although I love to meet, and get to know your animals, while photographing them, I understand that it's not always possible. So providing you can give me clear, good quality images to work from, and can tell me about their quirks and characters , I can create a good likeness for you.

The price of your commission also includes digital file of photos I've taken, if applicable


The price depends on your individual requirements, and takes into account...

Number of subjects to be included

Size of finished portrait

Any background, or other additions, for example, tack on a horse

Travelling expense, (the first 10 miles from me is included)

I also take commissions for bespoke Pen and Watercolour pieces, including 'Map Stories' see My original Artwork page for more information.

An A4  animal portrait of a single subject starts at £250 to give you an idea of the cost.

I am happy to answer any questions or queries, as I know every animal and every portrait is different, so please feel free to contact me for a no obligation chat about it.
