Prices & Photo Guide

Using your own photographs, I specialise in highly detailed, realistic portraits to create an immortal state for your beloved furry friend.

Working in graphite and coloured pencil, I pride myself on my attention to detail to create a true reflection of your pet’s appearance and character. I only work with high quality materials to ensure your drawing will not fade to yellow but stay looking fresh for a lifetime.

I take commissions from anywhere in the world and will always make sure that your drawing is tracked and safely posted to your front door. Each portrait comes complete with it’s own certificate of authenticity.

Throughout the process, I will work closely with you by sending pictures of your drawing at different stages, so you can watch your pet(s) come to life on the paper.

All prices below are for unframed portraits, although framing and mounting is available as an additional option upon request.

A £75 non refundable booking fee is required to secure your booking.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or if you would like to book to have your very own pet drawn!

Prices for colour images starting from £250, and coloured from £300. Contact for more details.

Full Body Portrait

For a full body portrait please add 25% for a single pet. Please contact me for full body portraits with multiple pets.

Additional Pets

Some sizes are unsuitable for multiple pets due to the lack of detail I would be able to portray.
For 5 pets or more, please contact me.

Backgrounds

I usually prefer to focus on the details in the head and shoulders of your pet, however if you require a background please let me know and I will be happy to offer this.

Shipping

Shipping to anywhere in the UK is £6 for unframed portraits or £10 for framed portraits. For anywhere else in the world, please contact me for an individual quote.

Mounting

A stunning way to finish your portrait off is to have it mounted with a backing board. Pricing available upon request.

Framing

Framing is a very personal choice and should you decide to have your portrait supplied framed, I will work closely with you to choose the perfect frame to suit the portrait. I use a professional and highly talented Fine Art framer for all my framing needs who has a vast array of frames available. Please enquire for more details.

 

Photo Guide

An important part of the process to creating your pet portrait is taking the right photo. This guide will explain the best photos to use and what makes a bad photo. Please feel free to email me your photos and I will let you know if they are suitable.

Good Example

Ideal photo composition to be drawn by Jess

Perfect photo, zoomed to 100%

  • When zoomed in you can see lots of hair detail on the face and good reflection in the eyes
  • Taken outside in natural daylight (not direct sunlight)
  • The photo is taken at the same level as the dog
  • High resolution photo taken with a digital camera, not on a phone

Bad Examples

Photo taken with artificial light

Artifical light

This will alter the tone of the fur and eyes

Blurry photo

Blurred

It is impossible to see the details in a blurred photo

Photo taken at a distance from the animal

Distance

Again, it is impossible to see all the details of the fur and eyes when taken from a distance
