Prices and sizes

I aim to capture the 'essence' of every animal, with as much detail as possible, giving my portraits depth and making them feel 'real'. This is achieved by a very careful, time consuming, layering of colour and structure.

Many paintings are displayed on here, shown alongside their reference photograph, so you can see this for yourself. Please bear in mind they are just photos of my paintings, so the true beauty of them is lost somewhat. If you would like to see originals please look at my events page and come and say "Hi" at a show.

Every animal is different, even within the same breed. When I have seen your photograph I can make recommendations on size and price, before then I can only advise what you might be best choosing

Paintings come with a blurred background so all the attention is on the lovely animal. They are in full colour unless you prefer a black and white.

I specialise in single animal head and shoulder portraits, devoting the whole portrait space to their lovely 'essence'. It is, however, possible for me to combine photographs of different animals, in one portrait if preferred. Please bear in mind this will mean a much larger painting and a higher price.

Your loved animals portrait is a unique piece of original art, created just for you and all about your furry or feathered companions. As most of us have to prioritise our finances, you may pay by a very popular '[i]payment plan'. This will help you have the 'once in a lifetime' portrait, without stretching your budget.[/i]

Small monthly payments are barely noticed, and your painting is paid for by the time it is ready! Wonderful.

Plans are normally spread over 12 months upwards, in small easier to find equal amounts. However it can be tailored to suit yourself, with a variable plan.

Some sizes .. prices .. and payment plan amounts for full colour paintings. Prices are for an unframed painting.
