Some pet portraits you see are so beautiful: with so much detail and very lifelike, yet they lack something... they lack any soul-
They are just as lifeless as a photograph.
With my work, I promise that I will strive to bring your pet to life on the page!

Each of my pieces are original and unique.
I pride myself with putting as much of your pet's personality into each stroke of my pencil/brushstrokes to make your special friend come alive upon the page.

Commissions are A4 sized and are sold unframed.
All paintings are sealed with a sealant prior to shipping, I highly recommend that you do get your portrait framed in order to protect it.

Paintings can take anywhere between 2-6weeks, but I promise that the time spent waiting will be worth it!

However I can speed this process up if needed as a urgent gift, but please give me time to complete it, as some paintings can take 15+ hours!

How to order:
< Send me a message via Etsy conversation check if I have any commission slots open (I have a limited number each month) then purchase a commission and send me any ideas, if you want something whimsical or realistic, or certain colours backgrounds that you may want me to do.

> Provide a couple of good quality photos (the better the quality of the photo, the more detail I can put into your painting) of your pet for me to work from. Preferably one with the pose that you want your pet painted (If you provide a few photos I can pick the one that would work best), also please make sure that these are colour accurate so I can try to recreate your pet's true colour. Also I like to know a bit about who I'm painting, as this helps me to 'capture their character' in the paper, so add a paragraph about your pet.

< I will then proceed with a sketch. Once we are both happy, I will then proceed to painting (you can get an idea of this process here). I will send regular work in progress updates and photos.

< Once I have competed the portrait, I will send a photo of it for your inspection to make sure you are happy and don't want anything changed (Please note: at this stage, if you don't like it, I will try my best to fix if it is in my ability, and nothing too major.

>I don't offer refunds, please understand that painting is a very time consuming process for me.
Please, make absolutely sure that you are happy with the initial drawing while it is still in pencil form, watercolours are not very forgiving if you wish to change anything major halfway though. If in doubt at anytime, please contact me, so we can work it out.

I'm really looking forward to working with you!

I got a painting of my beloved Cat whom passed away early this year, I reached out to Siobhan and she was so helpful and knew exactly what I wanted right away. It was done and I absolutely love it~ She kept me up to date on the process and made sure I was 100% satisfied with how I want it to turn out and I must say my baby looks so life like it's incredible, high recommend getting a painting from her she has a lot of talent <3

Siobhan has done a wonderful painting of my handsome soulmate Thunder who passed away in 2018. Siobhan was able to connect with him and was inspired by his soul and presence. Thank you so much!! I'll cherish his portrait forever!
