Commission Process

You have decided to commission a portrait?  Please read carefully the following information on how to commission a portrait...



1. Choosing the picture

A good photo is the key to a good artwork.


The ideal photo should make the animal stand out, be clear and sharp, with a good, ideally natural lighting.

I advise you to send me several pictures for each animal.

I strongly advice you to send pictures at least 1MB.


2. Quote & payment


Once your choice is made, it is time to confirm your commission. 

Payment by installment may be envisaged under certain conditions.

3. Painting or drawing the portrait


Your portrait will be added on my clients list as soon as your commission confirmed by paying or placing a deposit.


Commissions usually take around 5/6 months, so you will need to be patient …

If you would like your portrait to be ready for a birthday or another special occasion, do not hesitate to ask if it is feasible!


When the work has come near to completion, I will send you a picture for your approval or discuss the small amendments you might wish.

I will always do my best to ensure you are completely satisfied with the final portrait!


4. Shipping & reception of the portrait


Once the artwork is finished, time has come for you to receive your long awaited portrait!

You can of course fetch it directly from my studio (near Paris, France). Otherwise, your portrait can be shipped to your home. Shipping is at your expense.

I really appreciate seeing the portrait in its new surroundings, so don’t hesitate to send me a photo! Should you need some advice on framing, feel free to contact me.
