Important Information

Your commissioned artworks of your beloved pets are one of a kind and hand made with love.

They will capture their individual personality and are a great way to help honour their memory.  

Please feel free to get in touch to discuss your individual needs. 

 

Mediums

Artworks are available in either black and white or colour, using a range of materials on 300gsm papers.

Black and white works are hand drawn using graphite and Lumograph pencils on Archers paper.

Coloured works can be either produced using watercolour pencils on watercolour paper,

or using Pan pastels and pastel pencils on Pastelmatboard. 

 

Sizes

There are a range of sizes available, they can be found on the pricing page, however, sizes listed are a starting out point, if you would like another size, please get in touch for a quote.

 

Timing

Wait times can depend on the number of commissions already booked in, which could be up to 6 months, so please allow plenty of time when booking, especially if its for a special occasion, alternatively, gift vouchers are also available. Once started, commissions can take up to 2-6 week to complete, depending on size and medium and number of subjects. 

Reference Photos

Your portraits are drawn from photographs and multiple images can be sent, especially if there are more than one subject. Images should be high resolution where possible, generally speaking, the more detailed the photo, the more detailed the artwork. They should ideally have even lighting to avoid harsh shadows and to show the truest fur colours and textures.

You should hold or acquire the copyright to all photos sent.

If you need help finding the right photo feel free to check out the photo reference guide page, or get in touch.

 

Framing

Artworks come unframed, however, I can arrange to have the works either mounted or framed, with black, white, wooden, or custom options available, at an additional cost depending on the size and style. 

Payment

All prices on this site are in AUD. A 25% non refundable deposit is required upon booking to secure your place on the list, the balance is then due upon completion of the artwork and prior to the work being delivered. Alternately a payment plan can be arranged if preferred, with installments being paid through the process, feel free to discuss options at time of booking. 

Copyright

I retain the copyright of all the work I create. Completed artworks may be used for marketing purposes.

Progress shots may also be used on social media, if you do not wish this to happen, please advise at time of booking.

 

Other products

Would you like to have your pet with you always, even in those 'no pets allowed' places? Well I'm no miracle worker, but I can get you portrait put onto other products like a Tshirt, so you can wear them with you where ever you go!

 

Terms and Conditions

The 25% deposit is non refundable, unless in the unfortunate event that I have to cancel the commission.

Artworks will be sent upon full payment being received. 

Final payments are due no later than one week after completion, unless otherwise discussed.

I will not be responsible for any damages to the work beyond this time, I unfortunately do not have room to store works long term.

 

Process

The following is a rough outline of the process involved in commissioning an artwork. Please get in touch if you have further questions regarding this.

 

Choose a size, number of subjects, and medium

25% non refundable deposit is required to go onto the waiting list.

Wait times will vary, depending on the amount of other commissions already on the list and be advised at the time of booking.

Please allow ample time, especially if you have a specific occasion in mind.

Send through high res photos of your chosen subject(s). This is important as I like to include as many details as possible. Multiple photos can be sent. (see photo guide )

I then make a mock up of the composition and send it through for viewing and approval, changes can be made at this point.

I then produce the line art, shading and finally add the details and the finishing touches. Progress shots can be sent through this process. Small adjustments can be made, however, more drastic ones will incur additional costs.

A watermarked copy of the final will be sent for viewing and final approval,

Upon completion and approval the remaining balance is due to be paid prior to shipping.

The item will then be packaged and sent to your chosen destination.
