commission info & prices

We send our portraits worldwide and if you are interested in commissioning a painting or drawing, you might like to follow a Pet Portraits commission on our Case Study page. It depicts the initial contact all the way through to the Framing and packing of the portrait. This will give you a clear idea of the commissioning process all on one page. Alternatively you might like to read our Commissioning Information. For an overview of how much your pet portrait is going to cost, visit our page on our Pet Portrait Prices »

Hello Melanie and Nicholas!!!
It would be impossible to convey to you my complete happiness, awe and gratitude for the truly magnificent painting my husband, Kevin, gave me for my 50th birthday. It not only captures my beloved dachshunds perfectly, but our home as well. Now I know that my dogs will live forever and this time in my life has been captured so beautifully. It's SO beautiful!! I am truly in awe of your talent, Nicholas, and so incredibly grateful to you for doing this work of art for me. I still can't believe it's mine and was made for me. It will be an heirloom for our children as it portrays our home and precious pets so perfectly. Check out the picture showing me and my family on Christmas Eve, my birthday, when I opened this amazing gift.
Thank you!!!
