Celebrate your
four-legged friends

Pet portraits are a great way to celebrate a special critter in your life or to remember a long lost friend.

And honestly, there's nothing I look forward to more than getting animal photos in my inbox! I can't wait to hear from you.

your very own
PET portrait

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

Your pet portrait will be an original, hand-painted, unframed 8x8-inch gouache painting. It will be on archival, 100% cotton, watercolour paper.

WHAT'S NOT INCLUDED?

 

Framing and delivery/shipping charges are not included. However, you are welcome to pick up your artwork at Nancy’s home studio in central Edmonton. If shipping is needed, it will be an extra fee.

PAYMENT

A standard pet portrait commission costs $100.

 

A $50 deposit is required at the time of signing a contract. The remaining amount is due once the artwork is complete. You may pay with cash or e-transfer.

If you are looking to have a larger painting than the standard 8x8 portrait, or if you would like your pet portrait to include more than just the pet (like maybe the room where their favourite sleeping spot is), let me know and we can discuss the possibilities!

REFERENCE PHOTOS 

 

Please send photos to nancynickolsondraws@gmail.com. I need at least one photo with good lighting that captures the whole body. Additional photos are helpful to show details like the colour of the eyes, collar, etc. To ensure I understand your needs, all the details you want to be included in the artwork should be discussed prior to the signing of the contract.

TIMING

The expected date of completion will be confirmed upon booking. Plan for at least 3 weeks for the artwork to be complete. If you have a tight deadline, reach out and I'll let you know what's possible.

GIFT CERTIFICATES

Give the gift of a pet portrait commission! This is a great option if your timeline is tight or if you can't track down photos without the gift recipient.

How it works: You purchase a gift certificate. I will mail your gift certificate to you or to your recipient, or I can send you a digital version to print yourself. Then, your gift recipient can contact me at any time when they are ready to have their artwork started. They will send me their photos and I will start painting. 

Please note: All artwork created by Nancy Nickolson is protected under copyright. Do not resell, reproduce, or alter the artwork. However, sharing attributed photos on social media and the like is encouraged.​ If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
