What I am going to need from you:
You'll need to email me using the email address ABOVE, I will need a clear picture of the person, subject or pet you would like me to draw. If you don't have any clear photos it might still be possible to work from them, just email them to me, then I will let you know if they are clear enough to work from
Please make sure that:
The picture you will email me is clear to work from, with good lighting and that I can see clearly the features of the person's or pet's face (like the colour of the eyes, of the hair etc.) And remember that a very good photo will result to a brilliant portrait!
It usually takes up to 1-2 days to complete a portrait depending on the difficulty and amount of detail required, but if I have a long waiting list it could take longer, so if you need the portrait on a specific date I would advise you to contact me before you order.
I do request a £10.00 Deposit, which confirms your order.. All payments can be paid using PayPal, On-Line Banking or Counter Payments to my Business Account..I can give you details if requested
Packaging + Postage:
I post every portrait safely sealed in a cardboard postage roll, very clearly marked

Please note: If you live outside the UK just email me where you live and I will let you know how much the postage cost is going to be.
I am very fair regarding pricing.. I do get repeat custom because I offer fair Rates.. I also do not increase my prices at busy times, ie Christmas...My prices stay the same throughout the year
