I use a photo of your pet as a reference, which you send to me via email.
-You provide several photos of your pet for me to use as a basis for the painting
-The photos need to be head shots or a full body pose with clear focus and good lighting, so I can see the facial features well. I use the exact pose from the photo as reference for the painting (see pictures above).
-I discuss ideas/plans for the painting with you via email
-The painting is finished within 2 to 5 weeks, depending on my schedule. When you purchase, you're automatically next in line in my queue.
Size: 12 x 12 inches or 11 x 14 inches (whichever works best with the dimensions of your photo). I use 1.5 inch thick museum quality gallery wrapped canvases. I paint the image around/along the edges and wire each painting for hanging.
Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
Shipping: I offer Free Shipping in the USA and international shipping for an extra fee. Your painting will be insured and packed with care.
Guarantee: Prior to mailing you the finished painting, I will email you several photos of the painting. If you're not happy with it, I can either make adjustments or issue a refund. Each painting also comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Copyright: I retain all copyrights and reproduction rights.
If you'd like your painting to include more than one pet, I'm happy to paint them for you, but it will be best to make the painting a larger size. Please see this listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/545224938/custom-pet-portrait-artist-cat-custom

I package my fine art prints in clear archival poly bags. Then, depending on the size, I either ship the print rolled securely in a tube or laying flat in a bubble pack envelope with rigid mat board supports. All orders are insured and will be replaced if damaged during shipping (but this rarely happens!).
I package my original paintings with extra care. Each painting is wrapped in wax paper, then a layer of foam wrap. After which, it is sandwiched between two sheets of cardboard and secured with tape. This cardboard/painting packet is then wrapped with bubble wrap. It is placed in a heavy duty cardboard box that has at least 2 inches of space around the painting where I add more bubble wrap and/or bubble bags. All orders are insured. I've shipped all over the world and never had a painting damaged in transit (knock on wood!), but if it were to happen, I could paint another similar piece to replace it or refund the order total.
I love to paint custom pet portraits :)

I make each print as it is purchased. So, if you need a print with specific dimensions that I don't offer in my listings, I'm happy to provide a custom print that will fit your frame or wall space. Please message me to order. Prices will vary depending on size.
