What a fantastic job! And so great to work with. Can't wait to get a good picture of the poodle puppy so I can get one done of her. Thank you for the great picture.

Having had the pleasure and privilege of living in the company of many pets throughout my life,I have unavoidably developed a deep compassion and love for all animals. Art is my number one passion,and combining my artistic interests with my love for these companions of ours has brought me so much pleasure and satisfaction.
Originally from Stockholm Sweden, I came to California at the age of 11 accompanied by my family, including a Cocker Spaniel and a Swedish speaking Parrot.
Since then many a creature have come and gone through my home... dogs, cats, parrots, guinea pigs, small birds, rabbits, hermit crabs, turtles, and a duck...each one of them considered a member of the family. I therefore understand the deep bond you also share with your loved pets, and how special and precious they are to you.
These days I make my home in San Anselmo, California, just north of beautyful San Francisco. I am surrounded by rolling hills, redwood forests and the Pacific ocean just a half hour drive away.

Payment
I require a 25% non-refundable deposit when you order a pet portrait. I will not require further payment until your portrait is complete and you are satisfied. You will be able to watch the entire process online while I create your portrait. The final portrait will be delivered once I have received full payment.
You will be placed on my waiting list when I have received your deposit. Updated waiting lists will be available on my main website www.MartinasStudio.com , so you will know where you are in the list at all times.
Depending on the number of orders that I have, your artwork may take several months to complete; therefore, I cannot guarantee that your portrait will be ready before a certain date, but I promise to do my best to have it finished if there is a special day that you need it by.

If you would like a background or an additional pet added to your portrait, there is an additional fee as this obviously takes more time to create. This additional fee will be approximately 25% of the initial cost, but may vary depending on the complexity of these added elements. A final price will be agreed on before I start your portrait.

Once you have placed your order, I will post my drawings on my main website www.MartinasStudio.com as they progress, so that you can watch the entire process to completion. This way, if you would like anything changed, you can let me know before it is finished.

Your artwork comes with a mat only, so that you may choose a frame that matches your own individual style. The mat that's included can of course be changed if you prefer a different one.

When you commission a portrait, you are granting me the license to use the artwork on my website and for general promotion. This may include placing your image in my brochure, or on any other printed matter that I may use to promote my work.

I will not sell prints of your commissioned portrait unless you have given me written consent, in the form of a letter or email.
My prices can change at any time without notice. Once we have agreed on a final price however, it will be final and will not be changed.

*CREDIT AND DEBIT CARD CUSTOMERS - You do not need a Paypal account to pay for your items through Paypal! Choose the Paypal option during checkout. After you submit your order, click the "pay now" button. Scroll down and you will see the option to pay with credit or debit card without having to sign up for a Paypal account.
Shipping
Your portrait will be shipped flat, well protected and will include an acid free mat.
Shipping is not included in the price of your portrait. I will inform you of this cost before I start your portrait.
Additional policies and FAQs
Your 100% satisfaction is very important to me. You will be able to review your final artwork via e-mail in order for you to give me a final approval. I will at that time be glad to make any changes or adjustments to your portrait, so as to insure your complete satisfaction.
