The Commission Process
If you wish to commission me to create a pet portrait for you, simply send me an email or telephone me to discuss the size and medium of your portrait. From there, I will require a high-resolution, good quality photograph of your pet(s) in good lighting, which accurately represents their colours in real life and is not overly cropped. I prefer photographs to be in a digital format sent via email, but sending me a photograph in the post is also fine.
Once I have started your commission, I will give you an estimated date of completion. Whilst I endeavour to keep to this - and I am almost always able to - it is not a total guarantee that I will not overrun this date. Please understand that portraiture is not my primary occupation, and that at times I can be busy with my studies, though I will notify you if this will be the case at any point during the commission process. I will keep you updated regularly throughout with progress so that you have the opportunity to contribute and voice your preferences.
Once your portrait is completed, the finished product will be posted to you unframed via Royal Mail first class, or depending on where you live you are welcome to collect it.
Terms & Conditions
Before I begin any commission I require a deposit of 50%. This is non-returnable, though if I cannot complete your artwork for any reason, I will of course refund you. Upon delivery of the finished piece, the remaining balance will be due.
I currently accept cash, cheques, direct debit and paypal as forms of payment for my commissions, though my preferred method is paypal.
Postage costs are not included in the commission price and must be added to the final sum.
Upon agreement and completion of a commission, the client understands that I may use any piece that I complete for promotional purposes on the internet. My works may not be published or reproduced without my permission.
