Because you want to remember your friends forever

COMMISSION A PORTRAIT


A portrait of your favourite dog, horse or pet is a wonderful way to remember treasured members of the family, and is an original and personal gift, which will give pleasure for years to come.





Personally meeting each subject, wherever possible, I spend some time discussing the portrait and its framing with you. I take notes on colouring, markings, blemishes, etc. followed by a set of photographs. Having the unique ability of recognising the animals' characters, I am able to project them into my detailed watercolour portraits.

However, if a personal meeting is not possible, I am able to work from a set of good photographs, thus enabling me to ascertain the detail and character to project into the portrait.

By building up thousands of fine brushstrokes, I capture the tactile depth of the coat and individual features, making each and every portrait an authentic, accurate and totally lifelike evocation of the subject, appearing alive to you.





Every portrait is presented framed and mounted and is ready to hang where it will be a timeless tribute to your pet.

A single portrait



Many of my commissions portray beloved 'friends' as gifts for birthdays, anniversaries and weddings. These unique and personal gifts are always treasured and have longevity beyond the lifetime of their subject.



Commission charges for a single portrait are between 590 and 615 guineas depending on framing selected: this includes sight of the subject, a set of working photographs, and is supplied ready to hang.

Multiple portraits



I am often commissioned to portray several animals together to convey the relationship or the friendship between them. I arrange the composition of these multiple portraits to best bring out the characters of each subject.



Commission charges for multiple portraits are on request, and dependent on additional remarques and framing selected: the charge includes sight of the subjects, a set of working photographs, and is supplied ready to hang.

Portrait with pencil remarques



To further personalize each portrait I can add pencil remarques to the head and shoulders study. These can either depict the animal in various disciplines, positions and situations, it's aptitude or to illustrate the relationship with it's owner.



Commission charges for a single portrait with two pencil remarques are 690 guineas (£724.50): this includes sight of the subject, a set of working photographs, a choice of double-mounting and framing and is supplied ready to hang.

This includes sight of the subject, a set of working photographs, a choice of double-mounting, framing and is supplied ready to hang.
