The idea of doing custom work didn’t really come to me until a few years into my craft. I enjoy doing images of dogs (all different breeds) and have done different settings for framed wall art and bags. But it wasn’t until I heard many potential customers comment: “I love this, but if only it was my dog…”
I practiced with my daughters’ dogs–a Bloodhound, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and a Spinoni Italiano. Then, when I’d hear someone comment about wishing they had one for their dog, I assured them I could do just that.
Doing custom work is a lot of fun–I allow you to choose the type of piece (pillow, wall art [framed or unframed], purse or other), you choose the color of wool for the background and then you let me know how you want the image–full body or portrait style.
The only thing I ask of you is that you send me a few clear, high-resolution images you’d like me to work with. I like to be able to see different angles of the head and face, and body if you want a full-body image. If you have an exact photo you want me to work off of, that’s even better–just make sure it’s easy for me to see the subject’s face.
I will send you photo updates to show you how the process is going, in case there are a few things you want adjusted.
The timeline for custom pieces varies from style to details. I ask for an initial down payment before I begin, with the rest of the payment due upon completion.
Custom pieces are the perfect gift for birthdays and holidays! So if you’re looking for a Christmas present, I suggest getting an early start so we have time to make changes.
