LOVE! LOVE! LOVEEE it!!! I purchased this for a friend who lost her beloved kitty friend. Stephanie was quick in her work and very responsive and accommodating to any artistic changes that needed to be made before the final piece. She really captured the essence of Bebe, the cat. I'm very happy with the outcome and would purchase a custom piece of work again! Thank you so much, Stephanie!! :)

About

Original sketches, watercolor portraits & over two hundred amazing Keepsakes. Loving Life on Etsy!

Hi I'm Stephanie Beever a UK based portrait artist and creator of art from photos!

I love what I do creating custom drawings because it allows me to produce meaningful custom artwork that will last a lifetime! I started working in watercolor keepsakes 7 years ago after painting a bespoke child portrait of my niece for her first birthday. The drawing was loved so much I put up a few samples on Etsy and.... never looked back!

I've worked on over 250 commissioned portraits and continue to love what I do.

I work from home in my home art studio. Each custom portrait takes between 2-4 hours to complete from an outline portrait sketch, to initial coloring to fine tuning and any final amendments.

I always try to keep my prices affordable whilst honoring the time and my expertise as a portrait artist and illustrator.

If you like what I do, I'd love you to like my page on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/stephaniebillustration for updates, first glimpse at new work and behind the scenes exclusives.

Additional policies and FAQs
****CUSTOM ART SERVICES FAQ - ***

**Sizes
>> Standard US or UK sizes available.
>> The most popular is 8x10 inches. I can print up to 16x 20
>> Original will be either US 8X10 or UK A4 depending on your preference.

**How it works**

1) For each picture I will ask for 2-3 good quality pictures to choose from which may work as an illustration. I’ll give you my recommendation as we agree on a picture.

2) In around a week I'll send you the artwork. You may suggest any amendments and work collaboratively with me to perfect your piece.

3) I’ll send you a final image to review. Once you confirm I’ll send to my printers the next working day, who usually take 1 additional working day to print and send directly to you.


**How quickly can you do this?

Images take 1-2 weeks to complete your image. I’ll be in touch every 1-2 days with new drafts. At busy times such as Christmas the wait can be longer. I’ll give you a time estimate when you make contact.

**Is there a fast track service?

Fast-tracking is possible at an additional fee of $10 for 1 week, $15 for 2-3 days.

**Facts about the service

My style is sketchy and not based on a perfect resemblance. I will let you know if I foresee any difficulties in obtaining an appropriate likeness.

PLEASE NOTE: Please let me know in advance if you want special alterations e.g. slimming, longer/shorter hair length. Have a close look at the photograph and check if it captures the individual correctly. I'll accept reasonable changes of this nature however if the change is due to something I couldn't possibly have known and it takes me substantial time to change for you this would incur a fee for the additional time to correct. Additional close ups of individuals/animals are always useful for reference.

** Can I have a background **

Backgrounds are not included in the standard listing price - except for small details like sky, grass etc. If you would like a background to your image (not applicable to home portraits) get in touch for a individual quote. Backgrounds are at an additional fee as they take longer to paint and vary depending on your desired detail (with the exception of a plain color background).

**Extras** - to be charged on completion of design work.

Hairline border - $3
Special Names/dates on image - $5
Additional copies – $10 per print based on 8x10 print. Larger sizes cost more. Minimum size 6x4 is $4 for additional prints.

**What do I do next?**
If you would like a photo turned into an illustration, please send a photo to me via Etsy conversations or e-mail stephanie-beever(at)hotmail.co.uk

**Printing & Postage**

>>Prints

If you have opted for a print, this will be printed either in US or UK and sent to your directly from the professional lab in your home country.

This will be Royal Mail in UK or USPS in US.
Fedex priority mail is available for rush orders.

Originals are painting on 300gsm Jackdaw Acid Free Watercolour Paper. The paper is slightly textured. A classic and attractive watercolor card.
