Portrait Q&A

Multiple Pets in One Portrait

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 : )

Combining multiple photos into one image to add more pets or to change a pose or background does come with some extra cost. It’s about 10% more per image that I need to work in there. To get an exact quote, get in touch! Or you can use the checkout button above and see a price preview.

Custom Sizes & Substrates

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.

Shipping & Delivery

To get a shipping quote, let me know your location and the approximate size of the piece. 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.
