Whether it is a picture of your favourite pet or something more exotic, Alison can create a stunning image that will enthral for years to come.

Alison works from photographs, as it's a lot easier than chasing animals around. After all, even the most obedient dog will only remain still for a short time

If you wish to commission a portrait, here is what to do.


Firstly, it's a good idea to take several good images of your pet in a variety of different poses. This will enable Alison to see all sides of the animal and gives her an insight into the nature and personality of your pet.

Would you like a different background to the ones in the photos?

No problem!

Most of us find it easier to photograph our pets in the home or back garden where they are more relaxed and comfortable. Just submit one or more images of the kind of background you would like to be featured in the artwork and your pet can be blended in.

After you have submitted your images and let us know what your requirements are, Matt can utilise image manipulation software to render a draft image to your specification.

This can be an enhanced version of your favourite photo or a combination of several images.

This enable you to better visualise the final product before placing an order.

Monitoring progress

We will also email our clients with progress reports and images, so they can alert us if any minor changes are required.
