Hello, my name is Jennifer Turpin and I have been creating pet commissions for over 15 years. In those years I have grown my ability to understand my customers needs and I’m very proud of the partnership that develops out of this process. The partnership works so well that I have many returning customers. 


How to get started on your very own pet portrait - this is for an 11 x 14 inch stretched canvas option


Step 1 - email me a good quality photo of your pet. A clear photo is key to have the best pet portrait. Feel free to send as many pictures as possible. I will work from 1 main photo and the others help with any missing details. 


Step 2 - select a size. To keep pricing simple my prices are $2 per inch. My size options are - 8.5x11, 11x14, and 16x20. Please let me know if you prefer a different size. All paintings are created on stretched canvas with the sides painted. Your portrait can be hung with or without a frame. 


Step 3 - I will send you sketch’s of possible layouts. These are only quick drawings to capture an idea of how you would like to see your final pet portrait.


Step 4 - A 50% deposit is made to secure your place on the commission list. Once we agree to a sketch, I’ll provide a start date and I will send you updates as we go along. I often have other pet portraits I’m working on so timing varies depending on when I start. Please let me know if you have any specific dates. 


Step 5 - Once I have your final approval of your pet portrait and I have received the final payment,  I will package your painting to safely arrive to your home. I usually ship through FedEx since they have been really excellent at shipping art. 


Please let me know if you have any questions. I know how special pets are in our lives and I really enjoy capturing these 4-legged family members to bring back happy memories. I also love to learn more about your pet so feel free to share some interest facts and stories.
