Booking a Commission is easy

Booking a Commission

I would love to do a pet portrait for you and booking one with me is a really simple process.   In the first instance all you have to do is contact me via Facebook, email or telephone in order to discuss your requirements.

Please be aware that you will be required to pay a 25% holding fee once we have agreed your commission, this is non refundable.

I am currently taking commissions for 2021, so if you wish me to draw something for you please contact me as soon as possible.

I only do twelve commissions per year, so consequently if you contact me and all twelve places are booked I can only add your name to my waiting list.



Once your commission has been started, I will, if you have a computer, tablet or smart phone, keep you informed of your commissions progress, with regular updates including photographs of the ongoing work.



As you will see from my gallery and print pages all of my work is done to a high degree of realism and so a good detailed, clear, digital photograph of the subject in question is much preferred, however I could work with hard copies if necessary.

Indeed if it is at all possible I would prefer to visit you in order to take the photographs myself, this will be done within the price of the commission, providing you live up to a radius of 50 miles from Malton in North Yorkshire, if I have to travel beyond this distance then you will be charged travelling expenses of 10p per mile.

When I can do this I would expect to take quite a number of photographs of the subject.   I would then discuss with you which photograph is to be used as a reference image for the planned artwork.


Prices are based on one head and shoulders, the sizes are based on paper size and your portrait will be a good size within the paper area.



Prices include postage and packing within mainland UK

Just to reiterate our prices include :-

  • A head and shoulders portrait of the subject

  • The taking of a suitable reference photograph that has been agreed with you, as long as you live within a 50 radius of Malton in North Yorkshire

  • Guaranteed next day postage with the mainland UK

  • All packaging materials used for postage

  • Regular digital updates of the work in progress
