***PLEASE SEND ME PHOTOS BEFORE YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER*** Portraits take 6-8 weeks for completion from the date we decide on an image (not necessarily the date you place your order). I can't start painting until we've confirmed reference photos, so this is a VERY important part of the process.
You will receive:
*The original watercolour + custom cut mat
*Hi res scan so you can make prints if you wish
*Web file with my watermark (I ask that any images shared online include my watermark)
*The exclusive rights to your pet's image. I reserve the right to include any portraits I paint in my portfolio, but I will not reprint your portrait for resale without your consent.
1. Let me know you'd like a portrait
2. Send me pictures & specify any special requests
3. Purchase your portrait
4. I draw out the composition in pencil (image confirmation emailed upon request)
5. I paint the rest of the portrait (image confirmation emailed)
6. You confirm your portrait & request any minor adjustments
7. I make any adjustments, email you the final scan, mat it, pack it & send it your way!
My portraits are shipped matted, flat & unframed. I use traditional, archival, acid-free materials. Paintings include mats that fit standard sized frames.
Feel free to ask me any questions, either before ordering or at any time during the process. You can contact me via email: clockworkartshop [at] gmail [dot] com.

What year did you begin serving pets?
How did you hone your craft?
I love painting animals. I grew up with a menagerie, and I have always been fascinated by the colours & textures of feathers & fur and the fun little quirks that make each creature unique. My favourite muse is my little black Diesel kitten. Being adorable is her job, and she takes it very seriously. Painting my own kitty inspired me to start painting pets for friends and family as well; through Clockwork Art I now have the pleasure of painting animals from all over the world!
What tip would you give pet parents for working with animals that you've learned as a pro?
The better the lighting and detail, the more accurate your portrait will be. One of the photos will be the basis of my composition, but I prefer to work from a variety of images and a description of your pet's personality, so that I can do my best to get to know them from as many angles as possible. :)
What is one thing you want pet parents to know about you? It can be whatev-fur you'd like!
Every portrait I paint carries my kitties' stamp of approval.
