Frequently asked questions.

Do you work from photos or real life?

Naomi works from photographs

Can you use pets from different photos and combine them into one sketch?

Yes, this is how it is usually done.  It is very hard to get the animals to co-operate and sit nicely together in real life. 

Especially when you are trying to get a photo of them. 

How long does a commissioned artwork take to make?  

That depends greatly on current work load, commissions do take highest priority. Most commissioned pet sketches are completed in 1-2 weeks.  


Do I get to see the sketch before delivery?  

Yes, the artwork will be photographed and emailed for approval prior to delivery.  


How much will it cost?  

Pet sketches are available in a number of different sizes, so please view the price list for options.

Do I need to frame the sketch?
