The Process

  • Step 1

    Fill Out the Form

    Use the form on this page to send me a message and tell me about who you want a portrait of and any specific requirements you might have (deadline, colors, etc. Please note a rush deadline might incur a 20% fee).

  • Step 2

    Send Photos

    I’ll respond to your message with an email that you can send photos to. Please send me at least 1 or 2 photos that best represent your pet. The better the reference photos the better the drawing. Then, I need a 20% deposit sent through Paypal to get started.

    Step 2

  • Step 3

    Work in Progress Proof

    I’ll send you a work in progress shot for your approval. I don’t offer revisions but I do welcome feedback to ensure my drawing captures the likeness of your pet. The entire process takes about 2-4 weeks.

  • Step 4

    Final Approval and Payment

    Once the drawing is finished, I will send you a watermarked version for final approval. Once you complete payment, I will email the high resolution file to you. All payments are made through PayPal.

    Step 4

Why Digital?

I work digitally because it’s a flexible medium. I travel a lot and am not able to bring a full kit of traditional painting media with me wherever I go. I spend as much time on my digital portraits as I would painting on canvas! The difference is, you get to see a proof and have much more flexibility in making decisions as I work. Change your mind about the color? Decide you want a larger size? With digital paintings, you are part of the revision process. You also don’t have to wait to receive your portrait in person to see it properly – it gets to you the moment the painting is finished.
