Custom pet portrait prices are by size, listed here before tax and shipping (if applicable). To get a shipping quote, just email me at [email protected] and I’d be happy to help.
For help with sizes, I’ve created a guide that goes through the level of detail you get at the different sizes, and how to use masking tape to suss out how your portrait will fit your space.
Looking to put more than one pet in the same painting?
If you can get a photo of them together, there’s no extra charge for more pets in one : )
Combining multiple photos into one image, whether it’s for adding more pets, different poses, or a different background, has a 20% image combination surcharge. This is to account for the lighting, perspective and relative size variables that come up during the painting process.
Larger and smaller canvas sizes can be made available on request, as well as different substrates and media. I’ve painted portraits on a variety of surfaces, even rocks!
I’m here to create the perfect pet portrait for you, just let me know what you’re looking for.
To get a shipping quote, let me know your location and the approximate size of the piece you’re interested in. I ship worldwide, and deliver locally to Nanaimo, Parksville and Lantzville free of charge. Pickup from my studio is also an option if you’re in the central Vancouver Island area.
For all other locations, I usually ship through Canada Post or USPS, but can use any shipper you prefer.

3) Create the Perfect Composition
I’ll propose a layout for the portrait based on your photos, so we can discuss pose, reference material and background treatment.

You’ll receive photos of the painting progress as I go, so lots of opportunity to give feedback!Payment isn’t due until you’ve seen and approved the final piece. After that your artwork will be ready to ship or deliver as soon as it’s dry.

Portraits are shipped ready to display with or without a frame— stretched and wired on 1 1/2″ deep gallery wrap canvas. Oil paintings are UV stable and moisture resistant. Your piece is crafted to last a lifetime.

*** If you’re having a hard time reaching me through the forms, please send me an email! Every now and then the form breaks and sends your message away into the internet void instead of into my inbox and I don’t receive it. If this has happened to you I’m really sorry, I’m a better artist than web designer -_- But email is pretty reliable! ***
