Commissions are now OPEN for 2020. You can reserve a spot on my calendar by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org or messaging me on Facebook.
There are two payment options available for commissions:
- The first option requires a 25% deposit when you book a date on my calendar. The remaining balance is due upon your final approval of the portrait prior to shipping.
- The second option is an interest-free 5 or 10-month payment plan. This is like a layaway plan, and your portrait will be started after the final payment is received.
With these new methods of payment, I hope to make my portraits accessible to everyone!
Measurements are in inches and prices are in US dollars. Prices are good through 2020 and are for one subject per portrait. Additional subjects can be added on 11 x 14 inch portraits and larger, and cost an additional $50.

Military & Law Enforcement Discount
As the wife of a (now retired) NYPD Mounted officer, I fully understand the sacrifices made by members of our law enforcement and military, their families, and their equine and K9 partners. That’s why I’m happy to offer active and retired members of the US military or law enforcement a 10% discount on any size portrait. If the portrait is of an active or retired K9 or equine partner, the discount increases to 15%.
I realize that purchasing original art is a luxury, so when you receive your portrait, I want that luxury to be tangible. All of my portraits are carefully packed in a gift-ready presentation box hand tied with a beautiful ribbon. Your portrait will also be accompanied by a signed certificate of authenticity.
Shipping in the USA up to 5 lbs is $10. Portraits are shipped via FedEx and are insured. Shipping outside of the USA will be calculated on an individual basis.
The best portraits start with the best photographs. Please keep in mind that your portrait will basically be a hand-drawn version of the photo you give me. In order to create an excellent likeness of your pet, I need a good quality photo so I can see all the fine details that make your pet unique. Your pet’s eyes should be nice and clear. Natural daylight is always best. You can submit a few different photos if you like, and we can work together to choose the best one. I can work with poor images, but your portrait may not be as detailed.
All backgrounds will be left blank (the color of the paper or board) unless otherwise agreed upon.
I require each client to sign a simple agreement to protect us both. It details the specifications of the portrait, price, agreed-upon completion date, cancellation policy, and copyright information. Your happiness is always my greatest priority.
Progress and Privacy
Most of my clients like to watch their portrait come to life through progress pictures on Instagram or Facebook. Others prefer that I don’t share their portrait until it’s completed. The choice is always yours. Gifts will never be revealed at any stage of the process unless you give me permission to do so. Your name or other identifying information will never be shared without your permission.
Please feel free to email me at email@example.com or message me on Facebook with any questions you have.
I look forward to working with you and your cherished companion!
