How does payment work? Do you offer any payment plans?
I accept payments through Venmo, Check or check, and PayPal.
If needed, I offer 2-6 month interest-free payment options. This is can be done electronically or through the mail. I will set up a billing schedule to suit your needs. Please know that the painting will not be shipped or delivered to you until the last payment is received.

What is your guarantee if I am unsatisfied with the painting?
All sales are final, and I offer 100% satisfaction guaranteed.  If for any reason you feel the work did not turn out as you hoped, I will keep the painting and initial deposit, and give a credit for the deposit amount to be used for the purchase of any Pet Portrait Fun product or service.

How do I start the process of having a custom pet portrait made?
First send me a few photos of your pet. I will ask you about your pets’ personality. Tell me what you liked to do together, or places you liked to go with each other. I will use this information to illustrate the personality of your pet.

 What is the next step?
I sketch a pencil drawing, where a photo of it will be emailed or text to you for approval.  Any changes can be made at this time. When you are satisfied with the pencil sketch, a deposit is sent for half the cost of the final painting either by Venmo, Paypal or check.

What is the medium?  

B&W= Black Charcoal and White chalk will be on gray paper
Watercolor= will be on watercolor paper illustrated with ink and watercolor paint.

Oil Painting= will be on Canvas

How does my painting come?  
It will be shipped or handed to you in person. The painting will be in a cardboard folder with a transparent protective paper cover on the artwork.  If shipped, the cost will be added to the final price.

Can you help me find a frame?  
I always recommend a glass frame to protect the artwork. If you would like me to assist you in the framing process this can also be discussed. Price does not include frame

After the consultation and we agree on the details,

I will draft a contract for you to sign.
