Custom & Portraits

Custom paintings of any species, at just about any size!  Birds are my specialty, but I paint many different animals.  Please look over the general pricing and sizes, then contact me at and let me know what ideas you have, and the size/background/framing you are interested in.   We'll work together to plan the perfect painting within your budget.  Once a project is planned, I require a 50% deposit before beginning, with the remainder billed upon your approval of the finished piece. Orders are usually complete within a week or two, depending on my schedule and the complexity of your project.

Each listing in this collection has more detailed information about the types of custom projects I offer, and examples of past work.  Costs are generally comparable to my similar already-created works.

Custom process:

1.  View my custom information and examples to get an idea of the available styles and options.

2.  Email me at with your budget, size range, and ideas of how you'd like your piece to look.   Also send photos if it's a pet portrait.

3. We'll discuss your project and I'll create a sketch.

4.  Upon approval of the sketch, I'll create a 50% deposit listing for you to purchase (website accepts credit cards or paypal).

5.  Usually within a week, I'll send photos of the nearly-complete painting before I add the final details.  At this point I can make minor alterations.

6.  Upon your approval of the finished painting, I'll create a 50% balance listing for you to purchase, then I will varnish and ship.
