The value of my portraits lasts forever...
Want to see them burst into tears (of joy) when they realise how thoughtful your gift is?
Need a present that's original, unique and that you don't need to keep the receipt for?
Want to treat yourself and enjoy celebrating the most important member of the family every day?
Commissioned watercolour & ink paintings with character. A bit like if they were the hero in their own illustrated book, I've been told. Pet portraits, Horses, Dogs, Cats, Ferrets. Any creature you want to celebrate... I am bonkers about creating them.
I capture their essence and make a unique piece of art to cherish.
It's an ideal gift too, and a wonderful surprise if you organise it through me with a photo... then present it.
I have a 100% satisfaction rate on delivery - owners are often staggered that I have captured their character so well when I haven't even met them.
The effect of my art especially works well when it's a pet that has passed away, bringing a small comfort and a celebration of their love for them. I hear a lot that their owner feels happiness from a beautiful painting... because often only having a photo instead to look at when they are no longer around can be very painful as it simply reminds them of happier times.A signed piece of unique art in white bevelled mount, inside a white lightweight acrylic-fronted (not glass) A3 frame ready for the mantle or wall, created in watercolour and ink with wax seal of authenticity on the back.... what an amazing gift or surprise for a loved one.
Here are a just few examples of the countless creations I have already made - dogs, cats, horses and ANY creatures considered...
I use professional 300gsm watercolour paper as a base, and only use high quality paints with ink detail.
Every piece is done by hand and you get the original.
I offer a standard choice of background watercolour shading of grassy green or silver shimmer... or you can make a special request to match a wall or location.
Usual turnaround is 28 days but can be negotiated when you need it speedily, as I work on multiple pets in my studio on any given week in short sittings.
BONUS - You will also receive a time-lapse video of the art coming to life from start to finish, set to music (pick a genre) - TO SHARE EVERYWHERE - which I send to you online.
... Share your pet on social media/email/phone/tablet and accelerate that joy if it is a gift... for everyone to enjoy!
I prefer to sell the art already in a frame but sometimes for overseas orders or other requirements I can give you a price for unframed original.
All I need is a clear photo (or two) FROM ANIMAL LEVEL and preferably clearly showing their eyes - of your faithful friend from their level - something sharp and yes... it could be a phone photo.
I base my prices on a SINGLE animal and most impressive size is A4 artwork in bevelled mount, within a large white lightweight (or upgrade to a glass front luxury ) frame... ready to hang on the wall. I also offer a smaller size for a lower budget or unframed (but mounted) too. I can also combine pets in one painting but there is a small additional charge for this due to detail of faces.
Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions about pricing or additional subjects within paintings.
Recipients are often so moved when they see the finished piece that I'm used to them bursting into tears... but in a good way of course.
Follow the INSTAGRAM LINK below NOW TOO, to see more of my time-lapses and most recent commissions...
I regularly publish testimonials, pictures of pets alongside the art and there are reviews on my Facebook page too (link below) to reassure you.
Or why not type PICTORIA into Google and read my reviews for yourself?
