Have a realistic, custom acrylic cat portrait painting done for yourself or as a special gift for a loved one. I am once again making myself available for commissioned pet portraits. Below are details on how to go about. Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have, before committing. My pet portraits are hand drawn and hand painted by me, NOT PRINTS OR PHOTOS in any way. I have 30 plus years experience as a commissioned pet and figure portrait painter. Sizes available are: 6"x8" or 8"x10" or 11"x14". The medium choices are: wrapped canvas or hardboard. Your painting on hardboard will come with a single white mat but you will need to frame it behind glass. Wrapped canvas will come with ready to hang hardware.

The portrait of your pet will be painted working from your reference photo or photos. Clear reference material is generally essential for a successful likeness in a portrait. Your portrait will be done on primed artist quality stretched canvas or hard board, 6"x8" to 11"x14" maximum. The canvas is totally finished and painted on the sides, with staples in back, so can be hung as is or framed once received as well. I do also work on hardboard, which then needs to be matted and framed however, before hanging. Please make your choice from the listing options. I work in acrylic, in a traditional and representational manner, which dries quickly and is just as if not more durable and long lasting then oil.

THE PROCESS: As the buyer, you will be required to get their reference material to me within 1 week of purchasing, either by mail or electronically (I return all mailed reference images with the finished portrait). We then go over your reference and your wants for the portrait and a drawing is worked up. I submit the drawing to you before the painting is begun. I then begin the painting and I will complete it within 4 weeks of receiving the reference images. I can submit work in progress images to you the buyer if requested. Once you approve the finished portrait from an emailed jpg image, I will ship immediately. The painted portrait is drawn by hand and painted by hand, in acrylic. Below is a brief history of myself and my work.

MY ARTIST HISTORY: I am a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto. My strength is portraits of people and pets. I have been taking on portrait commissions since 1993. My own drawing and painting experience dates back to before high school. I have continually developed my skills through life drawing and personal pieces as well. My work has been accepted into many juried shows and won various awards off and on since 1997. My work is painterly yet realistic in appearance. I strive hard to always do the best job possible for my clients and nothing is sent to you until I have your emailed approval of the finished portrait. Thank you for your interest.

Please feel free to reach out and ask any questions before purchasing.

Buyers responsible for shipping costs of returns which are to return to me in CANADA. Returns must be shipped back tracked, no refund given for returns not received by me. Refunds only given once item is assessed as being in new unused condition. Any deterioration to condition or resell ability will reduce the refund amount.

Please be sure to always read my item description for measurements and details about the item you are purchasing as this can greatly reduce the need for unnecessary returns on a small independent shop owner business and yourself the buyer.

For manufacturing defects or items damaged by the Postal Carrier or Courier Co., photographs of the damage are required, before any claim and refund or replacement item is possible.
Please be sure of your size requirements Before ordering any apparel items. It is always best to order larger if you are unsure.
Care instructions are in the individual product descriptions, where applicable, as well as generally coming included with most apparel items. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.
I am only able to gift wrap prints as all other items are printed with my designs and your purchase is fulfilled by my manufacturing partners.
Most of my items are possible to order in larger quantities. Prices depend on the quantity you would like, and can differ depending on the item. Please reach out if you would like a large quantity of my prints or items featuring my printed designs.
If purchasing cross border, you may be subject to duty, taxes and VAT at your end. Please know that I am unable to determine if you will have to pay duties, taxes, VAT etc. to receive your purchase from me. This will be determined by your own Country's Government, and it is your responsibility to make yourself aware of that information from your Country's Government website.
My listing prices nor my shipping prices include any Upfront nor Prepaid Vat or duties in them. Myself, as the shop owner, have no hand in the collection or remitting of any Vat, duty or taxes and don't refund for any you may incur.
Digital download purchases, Etsy will collect any VAT and remit that at the time of your purchase, I as the shop owner do not handle that.
I prefer not to ship any purchases as Anonymous gifts to your intended recipient. Please ensure that your recipient is aware that they will be receiving something. Please ensure that your recipient's address is filled in correctly at the time of your purchase as I will be shipping to the address in your order, and not an altered, verbal or electronic change to receiver addresses after a purchase.
I do not refund for digital downloads as this item is impossible to return. It is recommended that you already know how to work with any digital file, .jpg or .png, to create with it what you want. I am unable to include teaching and instruction with my digital download image offerings and I don't price for that.
Digital downloads on Etsy should have no issue with downloading for you. If they do, please contact me and I will email it. I am only able to email once, and you must know your email program as to whether it will accept a .jpg or .png image of larger sizes. I am unable to be responsible for emailed files that you are unable to accept at your end.
I charge what it costs to ship. Size determines the cost in some cases. Canvas prints larger than 16x20 in. cannot be shipped via Canada Post and must go by a carrier that accepts freight, such as UPS. All my shipments are shipped with a tracked method, and in some cases, depending on the value, with signature required.
* The larger size options of my prints and canvas wall art all have a slight amount of the shipping costs in the item price. This is due to the fact that I cannot have variations in my shipping profiles to accommodate different sizes in 1 listing.
Please note that all my prints are sold and shipped Unframed, I do not offer framing, sue to shipping costs and issues.
Please feel free to reach out to me with any of your Custom requests and I will do my best to accommodate.
Since I am the artist and designer of all my prints, patterns and the photographer of all my images, I am able to handle many different types of Custom requests that you may have. This includes colour and contrast alterations, making an image or pattern available on any product that I am able to successfully source from my print and manufacturing partners, or completely Custom concepts in most circumstances. Time and image availability will be the only hurdles in most cases.
