PET PORTRAIT PROCESS
"Your pet is part of the family; a living, breathing creature who gives you unconditional love and joy. I take great pride in creating a lasting work of art to celebrate your pet."
To get the best result, each portrait needs to recall a personal moment like a memory which evokes the connection between you and your pet. This goes beyond photographs and is one of the many elements that set my artwork apart.
I like to work very closely with my clients and I am not happy until you are 100% satisfied with your unique portrait. I use photographs to draw from and ask clients to provide a selection of photos to generate a true likeness for the finished portrait.
A portrait can also be created from several “not as good” poses or shots. If at all possible, I need at least one good photo showing the eyes. However, do not despair if you don’t have any great pictures, I can work with what you have along with verbal descriptions of your pet’s personality.
Before I can begin your portrait a nonrefundable material fee is required. The balance is due upon completion. Once I commence work on your portrait I will keep in touch with you via regular emails or text. It is here that you will be able to see your portraits’ progress throughout its stages. This gives you the opportunity to make comments along the way and see how your portrait is coming together. Upon completion, your remainder will be due. The portrait is not complete until you approve the final proof.
