Commissioning a Portrait


I am available to do commission work, but due to my busy schedule, please contact me to discuss timelines.  Commissioning a piece of art is a fairly simple process.  I first require a 50% non-refundable deposit before starting any commission work.

I require a very clear, detailed and high-quality photo to be emailed to me of your desired subject.  The photo must be true color and show as much clear detail as possible, particularly fur (or feathers) and eyes.  Eyes must be clear, crisp, and visible.  Reference photos are required one month before I start your commission to confirm the photo(s) are viable references for the artwork.

Cost is based on size.  Please refer to the Price and Size Guide and confirm the size of portrait you would like.

All portraits are done on high-quality archival art paper and are accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.  Originals are shipped unframed in cardboard sleeves and are very carefully wrapped in tissue and protective packaging to assure your commission portrait arrives in perfect condition.

You will receive progress updates on your commission portrait during the creative process.  The remaining 50% is due prior to shipping after you have confirmed you are 100% satisfied.  Originals are generally sent within 1 week of final payment and are always sent insured.  Please allow up to 2-3 weeks for delivery depending on your location.  I ship world-wide.  If there is any problem with loss or damage, a full refund will be offered.

Please be aware that I retain all copyright to all my original artwork.  Packing, postage and insurance is included.

Deposits and final payments can be made by check or through PayPal.
