Pet Portrait Commissions

Creating lasting memories of your beloved furry friend

I create hand drawn Animal Portraits of your pet from photographs. I enjoy capturing the character of your animals in my drawings. I aim to make a lasting memory of your beloved family pet in my artwork. I create your pet portrait in the following mediums:

  • Graphite pencil
  • Coloured Polychromos pencil
  • Carbothello Pastel pencil

All portraits are made on high quality drawings papers from Irish Art shops.

How do I create your drawing?

I create your drawing from an image of the animal. The higher quality the image the more detail and character of your furry friend I can pack in. Images supplied shouldn’t be any less than 1 mb. A standard phone camera can produce this. Ensure your pet is in good natural light, preferable outside or near a window if indoors.

Provided images checklist:

  • More than 1mb
  • Pet/animal is looking towards the camera
  • The pet is in good light
  • Provide a few images if you are unsure

What’s the Process?

  1. Pop me an email via the contact form and we can have a chat about which medium you would like
  2. Send me your preferred image/images of your pet in an email
  3. I require a €50 deposit to complete the booking
  4. Most drawings are finished within 7-10 working days, depending on workload
  5. When your drawing is ready I will email a low resolution , watermarked image of the drawing
  6. When the final balance is paid, I will pop the drawing in the post. All drawings include shipping for the island of Ireland, shipping will need to paid for drawings destined outside of Ireland.

The deposit and final balance payments can be made via stripe invoice (which prompts a secure card payment portal- I will email this to you). I can supply you with an invoice with bank details if needed.

Coloured Pencil drawings and Graphite drawings are provided unmounted & unframed, they can be mounted on request. The pastel drawing will be provided mounted to protect the surface of the drawings (it can be smudged easily prior to framing)
