“I know that your dog is not simply your pet, they’re an irreplaceable member of your family, and your best friend…”

…The love you share is real and the time you spend together is precious. If you’re here it’s clear that, being devoted to them, you want to celebrate your best friend and the happy memories you’ve created together, and with someone you can trust.

An original piece of unique, lasting portrait art that forever immortalises and truly celebrates the unfading love you have for your adored companion. Perfect for dedicated dog owners who want a refined, original one-of-a-kind celebration of their best friend/s that they can treasure for many years to come, skilfully crafted with the meticulous love and care that they deserve by a friendly, experienced artist.

Each of my unique dog portraits directly starts life as a small selection of considered, finely detailed professional photographs produced during an initial sitting with my subject. I take my camera to my subject and shoot at the home they share with their family as home territory is often where they feel at their happiest and most naturally relaxed.

Upon returning to my studio I’ll put together some initial portrait mockups using your favourite photographs from the initial sitting and then email them over to you. You’ll review them and we’ll use them to decide upon the final composition of your portrait, as such you’ll know exactly how your portrait will look before it’s completed. I’ll then use refined and carefully considered techniques to celebrate and enhance the reality of each subject, meticulously crafting the original photographs into completely unique pieces of portrait wall art over a number of days.

A unique, painterly collage style that directly combines individual highly detailed images of your hound at their best into a single, visually striking and completely unique piece of composite art, each original pet portrait takes approximately 35 working hours to complete.

While I craft your portrait, all you need to do is choose the size of print that best complements your family home…

Absolutely fantastic pictures. Greg has perfectly captured our 6 greyhounds and made them all look beautiful.

…Once completed, your unique pet portrait is presented as a gallery standard and fully archival framed Giclee print.

Each original portrait is carefully printed onto the highest quality Hahnemuhle fine art paper using fade resistant inks by skilled gallery standard professional printers fully experienced in the preparation, presentation, storage and conservation of fine art prints. Your print is then hand mounted and sealed into a bespoke hand made frame, each of which is designed to perfectly compliment your portrait and crafted specifically to order by fully experienced, professional framers using premium materials.

Supplied ready to hang in your home, your fully archival framed dog portrait will look as good on your wall in a lifetime as it does today, becoming a precious family heirloom and allowing you to treasure and enjoy the priceless memories of your best friend both now, and for many years to come.

I only make a limited number of artistic commissions available to book each month in order that I can give my full and dedicated attention to each of my clients. It’d be great to hear from you when you’re ready, I’d love to be part of your favourite dog’s life.

 

Prices for an original mounted and framed 15″x 12″ portrait start at £400. Other size options are available to match your specific individual requirements.
