I have been painting animals and birds for over 20 years and they are my favourite subjects by far. I particularly enjoy depicting all the fine details as accurately as possible as well as capturing the character of the subject in my painting.
All stages of a commission are carried out with close liaison between the client and me, so you can be confident that the final result is exactly what you had in mind from the portrait.
Ideally I would like to come and photograph your pet at home, as long as you live within a 10 mile radius of Reading in Berkshire. If this is not practical, then I am able to work from images that you send to me, either prints or digital images. Please send as many photos/pictures of your pet as you can, showing as much detail as possible. Once I have chosen an image and composition, I will send you a copy of it for your approval before I begin the portrait.
The price of the finished portrait will depend on the size, but an average size of 30cm x 30cm (12’’ x 12”) will be £320 unframed, £365 framed. Additional pets or groups are an extra £100 per animal. Please call me to discuss your requirements - it’s much easier person to person. I require a 20% deposit before I start the commission.
Please go to the contacts page to email or call me to arrange for a portrait painting of your pet.
‘I am writing to let you know how delighted we are with the wonderful portrait of Ollie. The children and I love it. You have really caught the “essence” of him. We have decided to hang it in the lounge where everyone can see it and admire it!
