Custom Pet Portraits
by Professional Portrait Artist Sandra Palme

Pet Portraits are a very special way of honouring your furry or feathery friend.

Interested in having your pet painted?

My name is Sandra Palme - I'm a professional equine and pet portrait
artist, specialising in handmade custom pet portraits
mainly in pastels and charcoal. I also offer watercolour pet paintings.

I would be happy to create a lasting memory of your dog, horse, pony,
cat or any other pet from your favourite photos. It is my goal to capture
your pet's personality and essence as well as their looks.
I know how special your pet is to you!

Your photos

Your custom pet portrait will be drawn from your photos. The better the photo, the better the artwork. All that is required is at least one good
picture of your pet that you can e-mail or post. Here's some info on how
to take a good reference photo.

How to commission a pet portrait

If you are thinking about ordering a painting or drawing, have a look at
my information page and my price list and then contact me by filling
in the contact form here or by sending an e-mail.
I will reply within 24 hours.

Once your portrait is completed, a scan will be e-mailed to you for
approval. No payment is due until you are 100% happy with the artwork
of your pet. I pride myself in producing quality artwork and guarantee
a very good likeness of your pet.

Also, you can compare several of my drawings to the reference photos
they were drawn from and read more comments on the portrait gallery pages.

I'm a UK artist but international commissions are accepted.
Customers from the USA can send payment
in US $ dollars via PayPal.

The media I use for my animal artwork are pastels but also charcoal, graphite pencils and watercolors. I'm always happy to discuss
which medium is the best choice for your pet portrait.

Gift vouchers are available as drawings and paintings make unique and special Christmas presents, wedding or birthday gift.
