Commission Prices

One of the greatest joys of what I do is being able to give form to the creative ideas and wishes brought to me by my clients. I take commission orders for both animal portraits and original illustrations, and I am also available for creative collaborations. 

Just like each of my clients, every commission piece is unique, and so I quote each project on a bespoke basis. I will work to your requirements, however weird and wonderful they may be! 

However, I appreciate it is useful to have an idea of the potential cost of the artwork you have in mind, so I have compiled a basic price guide below. Please note, these are baseline figures for A4 and A3 sizes only (other sizes including custom sizes are available!), and extra details and embellishments will cost more, depending on their nature. The examples shown are standard portraits without any extra decorations or embellishments, and so would be valued at the listed prices.

To see further examples of my work and get an idea of what's possible, have a nosey through my Commissions Gallery.

Please note, once a price has been agreed, I do ask for a 50% non-refundable deposit to secure your commission slot. I will begin work on your commission once I have received this, and the remainder will be due to me upon completion of your order. I will keep in regular contact with you throughout the duration of the creative process, to ensure I produce a special piece of artwork that you are happy with!

Natural Background

An artwork wherein the natural colour of the paper is allowed to become the background of the piece; brought to life with Prismacolor Premier colour pencils.

I have a wide range of available colours, including textured papers, and if you desire something specific which is not in my current stock I am happy to discuss sourcing it.  I am also happy to advise on what colours might be best suited to your piece if you are unsure what to choose!

Prices from:

A4 - £175
A3 - £320

plus postage at cost.

Royal Mail Special Delivery is recommended.

Watercolour Splash

A fun and artsy mixed-media take on the traditional animal illustration. These pieces are initially started with iridescent watercolours, and then completed as usual with Prismacolor Premier pencils. Orbs and stars are included for extra 'ooh-factor'!


As with all commissions, the colour scheme is your choice, but I am available to advise you if preferred. Please contact me to discuss any extra details.

Prices from:

A4 - £200
A3 - £360

plus postage at cost.

Royal Mail Special Delivery is recommended.

A4 artworks measure 21 x 29.7 centimetres, or 8.27 x 11.69 inches.

A few notes on prices...

  • Please note, the above prices are baseline figures for A4 and A3 artworks only, as these are what I am most commonly asked for. However, other sizes (including custom shapes and sizes) are available too. Just ask!

  • The prices given above are for portraits or illustrations featuring one animal only; I am happy to include more than one animal in a single frame as well - please contact me to discuss.

  • The above examples of styles are not set in stone - if you have an idea that doesn't quite fit any of these categories, don't be put off! I love a challenge, and I love working 'outside the box'. So, pop me a message and let's talk.
