Due to the almost infinite variations and degrees of complexity of mixed media work, pricing can vary greatly. Therefore please contact me directly.
As with mixed media, fiber and textile art, clothing, and note cards can vary greatly in complexity, so it is impossible to reasonably establish a fixed pricing system. Please contact me directly, I would love to discuss your idea with you, and would love nothing more than the opportunity to create it!

rules of service and photographic tips

rules of service

  • Unless otherwise requested, work will be finished with an off white mat and backing. Framing is not included, but can be done on an individual basis.
  • All deliveries are subject to $15.00 shipping and handling.
  • A 50% deposit is required prior to the beginning of any work. Upon completion, I will send you via email, a digital image of the portrait for your approval. Upon receipt of remaining balance, painting will be carefully wrapped and shipped via USPS.
  • If work arrives damaged, I will provide a full refund with return of painting in original packaging. Insurance is available with additional charge.

photographic tips

  • The photo should be clear and in focus.
  • It should be a close up, with head or body filling the photo frame.
  • It should capture the pet in the position that you desire in the portrait, with eyes open if possible, but not looking directly at the camera.
  • Don't send just one! The more photos the better.¬†All photos will be returned if mailed.
  • Action photos also give interesting poses.
  • An open (smiling) or closed mouth is another consideration.
  • Perhaps your pet has a favorite toy or scarf that you would like in the picture? By all means put it in there!
