10 Questions about Ordering

Telling you how to order something beautiful.




1. Can you paint my dog?

Yes, I'd be happy to. I portray any kind of dog. Your dog is my passion.


2. How does it work?

It's very simple. E-mail me your favourite photographs of your dog, preferably non-blurry, taken in natural light, and without the use of a flash. A facial close-up helps me to capture the unique expression, which is so important for successful portraits.


3. Do I choose a theme?

Think about what kind of portrait you would like. Do you prefer a simple representation of your dog, or something with a distinct theme? Do you have favourite colors, hobbies or other things you would like to be incorporated? Just let me know, and together we'll find a solution that will please you. If you opt for, and have chosen a theme, I will draw a sketch for you first. Once you like the sketch, and give me the go ahead, I'll get to work.


4. What materials do you use?

I usually work with acrylic on canvas. All materials are high quality and will ensure the longevity of your painting. 


5. Where do you ship to?

I ship worldwide. Shipping fees are determined by size of the painting and destination. When size and destination is known, price for shipping will be listed in your individual quote. If you are a customer outside of the European Union, please note: Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyers responsibility. Please check with your countrys customs office to determine what these additional costs will be. Please check if your postal address is correct. I'm not responsible for items not recieved due to an incorrect address.


6. What does it cost?

The price depends on the size and complexity of the painting. I can send you my general price list, which applies for one dog per painting. However, it is easier to get your individual quote today. 


7. How do I pay?

I will accept Paypal or bank transfer. The balance is due once you have viewed and approved an emailed preview of the painting. Please note that custom orders, once you have approved them are non-refundable.


8. Can you paint more than one dog in one painting?

I'm happy to paint any number of dog in one painting. However, my general price list applies for one dog per painting and prices will vary depending on the complexity of the painting. Another option you can consider, which customers frequently choose is, to get several paintings the same size. Then you can choose to hang them together as one big painting or individual paintings. 


9. Can I use the painting commercially?

A commissioned drawing is for private use only. If you're interested in using the drawing commercially you have to make this clear from the start and then we can come to an agreement. However, I'm often asked for example: Can you design my logo? I'm always happy to collaborate on interesting projects. However, I am a traditional artist working with paper and canvas. So, should you desire a logo, I can make you a sketch, but for digitization you have to work together with a graphic designer. If you wish to use my art work for mass production, please make this clear from the beginning. 


10. Do you design Tattoos?

I'm very flattered that people choose to have my work as a permanent tattoo. You can order your desired motiv as a sketch, drawing or painting. A good tattoo studio will then work together with you to incorporate the image into a beautiful design. However, I'm not responsible for a possible negative outcome of the image on your skin. If you are a tattoo artist yourself and want to use an ordered custom sketch, drawing or painting as a motive, please make this clear from the beginning.
