How Does This Work?

  1. View my portfolio and see if my style is right for you! ūüôā
  2. View my pricing and select a size. Price includes sales tax, packaging, and postage.
  3. Take great photos of your pet.
  4. Order your portrait.
    • For multiple portraits, please submit one order for each.
    • Upload your photo with your order.
  5. I will begin painting once your payment is received in full.
    • Each pet portrait artwork is hand-painted. I use high-quality watercolor paints and ink on acid-free, 140lb (300gsm) cold press watercolor paper. I can include delightful details such as toys, decorations, and/or your pet‚Äôs name or a caption in hand lettering.
    • Each painting requires several hours to complete, over multiple sittings. Each takes about 2 weeks once payment is received.
    • I do¬†not include framing or matting.
  6. I will scan the painting and email the image file to you for final approval.
    • Watercolor does not allow much reworking without ruining the painting, but sometimes small changes are possible.
    • When you are happy with your painting, I will prepare it to be shipped.
  7. I will ship your painting to you.
    • I will safely package your painting¬†in a protective, clear, resealable bag with cardboard backing, inside a rigid chipboard mailer
    • I will ship the painting to you via USPS First Class.
    • I will then email you the tracking number.
    • Delivery will take 2-3 business days.

Who will own the copyrights?

You must be the legal owner of the photo you submit for reference. By ordering a painting, you agree that while you retain copyright to your photo, you are providing the license to me to create this derivative work.

Purchase of a painting from me does not transfer the copyrights for the artwork to you. You will receive and own the physical painting. However, I will be publishing the digital image of the painting on this website and on social media. I might also offer reproduction prints for sale. You will need to request my permission for any commercial use of the image, such as for a business logo or other derivative work.

Do you offer a money-back guarantee?

I do! I want you to be 100% thrilled with your pet’s portrait. If for any reason you are not happy with the final digital scan I email you, I will keep the painting and refund you the full amount you paid. Refunds are not available once you approve the scan and I ship the painting to you.
