Pet Portrait Prices

All of my prices are based on the paper size, of which your portrait will proportionately fill. As a general rule of thumb, these prices are for a head and shoulders portrait.

The prices below will include a basic mount and delivery within the UK. Please contact me for postal prices and shipping details for outside of the UK.

Current Prices as of August 2020

  • A3 sized canvas or paper – £350 – this price is for one pet only. An addition of 50% is added for secondary pets.

A3 is the smallest size that I offer. If you would like a larger size, please contact me to discuss your requirements. I don’t produce miniature portraits as the details from pencil work is better portrayed on a larger canvas.

If you wish to have more than one pet in your portrait, I am happy to discuss and arrange a separate price for this.

Working From Photo’s

To be able to provide you with the best quality portrait, I will need a good, clear, high quality picture of the subject.

Eyes and nose area specifically need to be in focus, as this is what will really allow your portrait convey the personality of your pet. I can work from poorer pictures where needs be (if a pet has passed and pictures are limited) but the details are not guaranteed to be accurate.

Securing Your Booking

My books are filling up quite quickly, so to secure your place, I ask for a £100 deposit. I will then block out a time for you with an agreed date for completion. This deposit is non refundable once work commences.

I am also happy to arrange payment by installments if this is easier for you.

The portraits take a minimum of 30hrs to complete, so I generally allocate at least a week per portrait.
