Pet Portrait Commissions
You’ve found my new blog on my new website! This post is about commissioning your pet’s portrait from me. I do them because I enjoy giving a tribute to those special companions that are gone or will soon be gone. It’s unfortunate that we don’t have them with us very long as it is.
My portraits are done in wool felt using the needle method, usually over a wire armature. Most have glass eyes that are created by me. Some will have noses or claws in polymer or wool, depending on what I feel gives the best likeness. Work is normally completed in a few weeks unless I’m severely booked. Most will have dimensions of 8 x 9 x 3 – depending on what kind of animal and type. Standing, sitting or lying down.
I require good clear photos of all sides and markings to do a well made piece. the colors I see in your pictures will dictate the colors of wool I choose, so they need to be in good lighting that shows the best color of the pet.
prices for 2020 start at 275$ and up depending on difficulty or changes as desired by the buyer, to be discussed and agreed upon. shipping charges will be calculated by your zip code. International shipping quotes can be given on request.
The work must be paid for in advance, as your pet is only special to you. I cannot sell it to someone else. The quality of my work speaks for itself. My goal is to make a quality portrait of your pet. I have had many happy customers over the years. I do not disappoint
