Want something made specially?
If my work has caught your eye and you’re interested in commissioning a piece, feel free to reach out and we can chat further about making it happen.
I work in both digital (Adobe Photoshop and Animate) and traditional (pencil sketches, watercolour, or other if you’re brave and keen) mediums. I’m pretty flexible in what I do but my current strengths are in portraiture (humans, animals, birds).
Please note that due to my full-time employment in the conservation sector, I have limited time available to work on commissions.
My ability to complete your commission will depend on my availability at that time.
You can get in touch via email by clicking here.
Pricing is typically dependent on how complex/detailed the subject is, the size of the piece, if you want a background, etc.
Below is an indication on pricing (postage listed separately). All prices are in AUD. Please note this is a rough guide only and may price outside these ranges depending on the specific piece and terms around it.
Simple animal illustration in black and white – $40-$110
Portrait (human or animal) in colour – $70-$300
Please email for a more complete price guide.
Traditional watercolour animal portraits
A5 – $70-$110
A4 – $110-$150
A3 – $150-$350
Postage within Australia

Additional cost for postage with tracking/signature on delivery/express post
Still interested in commissioning a piece? Great!
Here’s how to proceed (and what will happen next).
Get in touch here with an outline of what you’re after (and timeframe if you have one).
I’ll do my best to get back to you on rough pricing and when to expect it by.
I’ll prompt you for more details if needed: how you want it to look, if you want a background or not, and the size and style you’re after. This will help me to give you a price and time estimate.
Once we agree on subject details and price, and we confirm details on payment and timeline, I’ll send you a preliminary sketch to make sure you’re happy with it before I commit and get started.
Major changes won’t be possible after the preliminary sketch has been approved by you, but I will keep you updated at key stages in case there are minor changes you’d like made.
Once everything is completed, I’ll send your artwork out via the agreed method (safely packaged via post, or by email/cloud sharing for digital media).
If you have example images feel free to include those in our correspondence!
As above, the more details you can provide upfront and the clearer you are about what you want, the easier it will be for me to create something for you that meets your vision.
For portraits, I require high resolution photos that show the subject as you want painted/drawn. If it’s not on the photo and you want it there, I’m going to have to take creative license and make it up; this includes objects obscuring the subject in any way, or a photo that crops out part of the subject (e.g. feet, ears, hair).
If low resolution photos are all you have, we can still chat and I’ll advise you on what the limitations are.
Digital pieces will be provided as .jpg or .png files.
As a note, pieces I produce for you are not to be reproduced for commercial purposes, unless agreed otherwise.
Thanks for reading, and I look forward to working with you! 🙂
