I create bespoke colourful pet 'pawtraits' out of your favourite picture of your pet. Available in two sizes, A4 and A3 with a choice of colour backgrounds.
I also create artwork prints to brighten up your home and greetings cards. Click on my 'Etsy Shop'.
Take or choose a photo of your pet. It is important to have natural light and a clear image (not blurry). Also make sure your pet is not obscured by anything. The best angle is eye level for a portrait.

Frequently asked questions
Do you do any other sizes?
At the moment the maximum size that I can print is A3. However if you want the image smaller than A3 or A4 then that is a possibility.
How long does it take?
The Pet 'Pawtraits' up to 2 weeks and then postage can be 3-5 days. So if you do require one for a specific date then please allow enough time.
What type of photo composition is best?
The best compostion of your photo would be a traditional 'portrait' view, so a clear image of the face and upper body taken at eye level. Generally I do not draw the whole figure.
Do I need profesional photos?
No. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has hundreds of pictures of my pets on my phone. The cameras on phones these days are so good that I can use the images taken on a mobile.
How is the artwork created?
The artwork is hand drawn digitally using the photo provided.
What if I change my mind about the background colour?
That is not a problem, I will always send through a copy of the image for your approval before it is printed. So the colour of the background can be altered from your original order.
Can you send directly as a gift?
Absolutely! If you just let me know at the time of ordering that it is a gift and where you would like it sent.
Do you do any other artwork?
Yes! Take a look at my Etsy Shop - More coming soon!!
