fine art pet portraits by commission
You may have already seen from our website, myself, Melanie and my husband Nicholas are professional pet portrait artists working in our art studio full time on our paintings and drawings. We have been commissioned by clients to paint and draw their much loved dogs, cats and horses for over 24 years. We pride ourselves on giving our clients the very best experience when working with us and we have clients who return time and time again. We have worked with such amazing clients from the owner of Ruffwear, a premier league football manager, Baylis & Harding ... oh and the Aga Khan! Why not take a look at our prices and sizes below and if you require any guidance, we are always at the end of an email or telephone call.

Our Work is in Demand - Join our Waiting List
Both Nicholas and myself have fairly long waiting lists and are usually booked up between 3 and 5 months all year around. If you are looking to commission a portrait for a specific date that we are unable to meet, we can arrange the portrait details with you and save you a space in our commissions list. If required we can send you a personalised card to give to the recipient on their special day. Email us to discuss your requirements.
Backgrounds in oils
Scenic background may incur an additional charge. We can advise on this once we have seen your photos and ideas for your painting.
Frames & Engraved Plaques
Framing is optional and we can arrange this for you. We offer a wide range of frames, including large ornate swept frames which are hand made and bespoke for each client from £120. We also provide Engraved Plaques in Silver or Bronze for £69.
Tracked shipping for our portraits to the UK is £20 - £80 depending on size and weight. Overseas shipping is between £80 - £140. We send our regular sized portraits via Parcelforce 24 and our overseas portraits DHL.
Specialist Art Courier
We work with a specialist art courier who is able to hand deliver your painting personally to your door. He has been working with top London galleries and artists for over 20 years (Courier company of the year 2019!) moving priceless artworks all over the UK and Europe. We are very lucky to have him on our doorstep. This is an optional service and is usually reserved for our larger sizes. Contact us for prices and details.
If our clients are struggling to take good quality, clear photos of their pets, or simply would rather have a professional do it, we may be able to visit ourselves for a photoshoot. This service is usually reserved for the larger sized oil paintings. There will be a charge based on mileage which we would discuss before meeting. Please email us for details.
A deposit is required to save your space in our client list. The remainder to be paid just prior to us starting the portrait. We accept all major debit and credit cards including Amex, along with bank transfers. Please read our T&C page before ordering.

Both Nicholas and myself work to fairly long time scales and so it's not always possible for us to create a portrait in time for your special date. After all, we don’t want to rush your painting or drawing. Our artwork takes time. We make sure every single portrait receives our undivided attention. Every piece is lovingly hand created and we capture the heart and soul of each pet we portray. This is why our clients come back to us time and time again. It is also why our clients are happy to wait for their painting or drawing!
We do try to meet special occasions if we can, however if we are unable to do this, our gift voucher service could be the perfect option for you. It means that we can either make all the arrangements with you, from choosing photos, size of the portrait, which medium you would like, the composition of the portrait etc or you can just choose an amount you wish to give the recipient and leave them to decide everything! The advantage for the recipient is that they have input into the design of the painting or drawing. They may wish to swap a photo and use one that you are unaware of. They may like to choose their own frame or wording on the engraved plaque for instance.
You can have the card sent to you to give personally, or direct to the recipient at their home address. The card size is 7 x 5 inches and we use Moonpig to send the cards worldwide. To order one of our gift voucher cards, please email us above with your requirements. If the pet has passed away we do like to see at least one good photo of the pet in question to make sure that we an work with them. We look forward to hearing from you soon and making someones day very special.
