The commission process

Photos brought to life with a bit of TLC

Once you have contacted me via my Contact page there are 5 simple steps:

  1. We agree on your size and style requirements, price and delivery schedule.
  2. You send me your photographs in digital format via email at high resolution.
  3. You make a 40% non-refundable deposit via paypal or bank transfer.
  4. I will send you a digital proof for your final approval.
  5. You make the final payment and your paws2paint original will be delivered.

Choosing your style of portrait

Every commission is unique but to help you in your decision I have some popular sizes and styles to choose from on my Pricing page. I pride myself on the quality of my commissions and only use premium products. If you have any queries or have a special request simply contact me via my Contact page.

Providing photographs of your pet

For best results it is important to supply more than one image, as clear as possible, as I want to capture the spirit of your beloved pet. Unique details such as the fur texture, eyes and markings will allow for a true representation.

The timeline

Once a commission has been confirmed I am able to determine the turnaround time to complete a portrait. Current projects in progress will determine the time duration. Please know that each portrait is given my full attention until their completion and my priority is to consider all individual requests. As a guide allow 1-2 weeks for an ink and watercolour and 2-4 weeks for a painting on canvas from the time commission is accepted to delivery. 


Delivery is free in the Sydney metropolitan area. Outer Sydney, interstate and international delivery (by courier) can be arranged by paws2paint — standard freight charges apply. Any additional delivery charges will be provided to you upon approval of the final painting.
