Frequently Asked Questions

I certainly do!  Wildlife and Pet Portraits are more than welcome, and I’m starting to do landscape commissions as well.

Commissioning a painting is easy!  I will need a good quality image to work from.  While cellphone photos are generally good enough, I normally ask for the original photo taken to ascertain quality and detail.  It is very difficult to work from a low resolution image that pixelates.  I can also offer advice on taking good reference images as I used to be a professional photographer.  Once we have an image, you need to book your spot on my waiting list by paying the 50% booking fee.  The balance is payable when the painting is complete.

Yes!  I welcome all international clients and package artworks with the utmost love and care.  While I believe shipping unframed is better, I can also ship framed works.

All parcels shipped nationally will be shipped via Courier to  your home.

Orders can also be collected from me at no additional cost.

I prefer shipping international parcels with DHL, but cost can vary quite a bit considering area and the size of the parcel, therefor I prefer to custom quote.

It really depends on the level of detail and complexity, not to mention size.  I also usually have a bit of a waiting list for commissions, so book in advance to ensure your artwork is completed timeously – especially if intended as a gift.  Quality takes time and I’d rather produce work I am proud of.

You can elect to make payment in a couple of ways.  I accept credit cards via Payfast, Yoco and Paypal, or you can do a bank transfer.

My pricing depends on both size and complexity.  An impressionistic landscape will cost less than a large detailed wildlife painting.  Pet portraits generally don’t have backgrounds and are therefore less expensive than a full painting with a full background too.  I prefer doing custom quotes to suit your needs, please contact me via my handy contact form for more information.
