A painting of a much loved pet will provide a unique gift which will last a lifetime.


I can work from your photographs, but do prefer to see the subject and take  my own photographs. Should this not be possible I offer the following advice:

      Take photographs in natural daylight.

      Try to capture the pose which best describes the character of your pet.

      Take pictures of various angles to aid with colouring etc. Eyes are especially important.

Please be aware that if you have photographs taken by a professional photographer you will have to get copyright agreement from them.


Depending on exact requirements, paintings can take up to 3 months to complete so please keep this in mind when ordering. I do offer a framing service, but if you prefer you can opt to have the painting alone.


I work in most mediums including oils, gouache, acrylic, pastel and pencil. Exact requirements of medium, pose, background, size, mount, frame and price can be discussed at the time of ordering.


Once your painting is finished I will contact you to invite you to view it. If it is not convenient for you to call in person I can send either a scanned copy or a photograph to you.


I will require a deposit of 50% at the time of ordering with the balance due before delivery. I accept payment by cheque or cash.


Much of my work is available as prints and greeting cards - please call for details and availability.
