what materials are used in the paintings?

Our paintings are completed using the highest artist-grade quality. The pigments in the artist-quality paints we use have superior lightfastness ratings that resist change in appearance over time and light exposure. To make sure your paintings last forever, we paint on artist-grade paper that is chlorine and acid-free; this is essentially the equivalent of museum archival grade paper.

how long does it take to complete?

This depends on whether there are any other paintings booked ahead of you, the size of the painting you’ve chosen, and the reference photo provided. Please contact us as soon as you’ve decided, for an estimated time to complete a painting for you and to place an order.

will I be able to have a rush order done as a gift for someone?

We accept orders on a first come, first serve basis. Once you contact us, we can let you know how many orders are ahead of you.

As well, we take great pride in the quality and details of our beautiful life-like paintings. Our hand-painted watercolour paintings are done with much love and care. Because of this, we do not wish to rush our paintings in order to avoid compromising the quality of our work.

We understand most people generally shop for gifts relatively close to the special date, be it a birthday, Anniversary, Valentine’s Day, Mothers or Fathers Day, or Christmas etc. For this, we gladly offer Gift Certificates to present to your loved ones. This way, they can take their time to choose the perfect photo of their pet that they love to be painted!

how large should my photo be?

Any photo taken with a cell phone or camera that’s 2 MB or larger. We found that the best image size we’ve worked with was between 8 to 10 MB. The more details in the eyes and/or nose the better; however, it’s possible that we can work with you to get the best results if you have limited photos.

can i use a photo i posted on my Instagram account?

Absolutely! As long as the photo was taken by yourself and you own the photo. Just include the link of your Instagram photo when you contact us.

i’ve chosen my favourite photo of my dog. what’s next?

Send us a quick message with your interest in your order and we’ll contact you shortly with next steps.

how do i pay?

We accept payment by PayPal.
