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.
