▶︎ Select the size and medium and purchase the listing. If this is a gift, be sure the mailing address is correct. In NOTES TO SELLER, provide any personalization for your portrait including background, color preferences, text, etc.
▶︎ Send me a message with the photograph you would like your portrait based off of. Please see tips below for picking a photograph that will work best. Please feel free to send several photographs so I can get to know your pets personality and all of the little colors and spots that make him/her unique.
▶︎ Within 5 business days, I will send you a draft/sketch for your review.
▶︎ Once your portrait is completed, I will send you a photograph of the piece for your approval. Once approved, I will carefully package your piece and send it on its way!

To ensure the best quality painting, please follow these rules when picking your reference photograph:
1. Use a photograph with even lighting. A well-lit photograph that doesn't have too many dark areas is best, but also avoid too many bright white areas. This allows me to see all of the details in their fur.
2. Use a high resolution photograph whenever possible. Please make sure your photograph is sharp and detailed!
3. Take the photo at eye level with your pet. Photos at odd angles or looking down often look unflattering and unnatural to the eye.
4. Do not photograph your pet with the FLASH turned on. It creates odd colors and a red-eye glowing effect.
**You can email your dog's photos to cherietaylorstudio [!at] or use the Etsy message system. Please do not send copyrighted photos without the permission the photographer.

1. For every piece of artwork I create, I take plenty of progress pictures and a time lapse video of the art being created – and I LOVE to share these on my social media pages. I typically wait until the customer has received their painting before posting these. If you would prefer that I not post anything on social media, please let me know in the NOTES TO SELLER.
2. All of the portraits and illustrations are for personal use only. For commercial purpose please contact me at cherietaylorstudio [!at]
3. All sizes up to 11" x 14" will arrive flat-packed in a box. Any size above that will be shipped in a tube mailer.

I am BLOWN away by my pet portrait made by Cherie. She is clearly talented—you can see from the photo. But more importantly, she is a professional! Cherie made sure to check-in with me on the progress of the portrait while she was making it. She sent me “rough sketches” and even added an extra touch to it requested by me. She was very accommodating and shipping was fast! I will definitely be purchasing from Cherie again. :)

Cherie was very communicative through the process of producing a sketch of our two dogs! She made updates and worked with us to make it perfect! We love it so much and can’t thank her enough!

Oh my gosh, the was just amazing. I purchased this as a Christmas gift for a dear friend of mine whose dog is probably more special than a human she has ever met. When my friend opened the gift, her words were "This is the best gift ever!!" and almost cried. Cherie's drawing depicted Jack (her dog) to a T! I was blown away by the accuracy of the drawing. Cherie was great to work with and delivered on the picture on time. Highly recommend her. I will be returning for future purchases!

Cherie did a portrait of my brother/sister in law's dogs as a Christmas gift. It turned out absolutely amazing. When my sister in law opened the gift, she immediately started shedding happy tears. Saying they love it is an understatement. Cherie is amazing and she will definitely continue to be our go to for portraits.
