Frequently Asked Questions


Can I photograph your dog for the portrait?

Yes, absolutely. I can easily travel within a 30 mile radius of Henley on Thames RG9 1HG, if further afield, please do ask. I charge for my travel time, time with you & your dog & travel costs. For a quote send me your enquiry along with your postcode.

How long does a portrait take?

Once we’ve selected the photograph and decided upon the composition, allow 4-6 weeks depending upon workload. My drawings evolve over several rather than a single session. I need to return to a drawing, to see it afresh, before I’m satisfied.

I live in San Francisco, can you draw my beloved Chinook?

Absolutely yes. As I work from photographs my subjects can live anywhere on earth or heaven. For international clients I dispatch drawings unframed with wooden board protecting the artwork. (Postage & packaging rates are quoted individually).
