Before or after you’ve purchased this item, email me (Julie at with:

  • Photo: Send me your single best photo (Contact me about merging several photos if you don’t have any great photos)
  • Feel free to include any additional details that you think will help me capture the personality of your pet.

If you’d like to pay half up front and half upon completion, please contact me and I’ll arrange for that.


Now that you know what subject you’d like, decide on a size. The size ordered corresponds to the size of the paper. The image will be painted slightly smaller to allow for a matting margin. If you’re looking for a different size, let me know!

  • Small: 4″ x 6″
  • Medium: 5″ x 7″
  • Large: 8″ x 10″

Matting and Framing

I can mat and frame the artwork or you can do it yourself. Follow these links to order the mat and frame separately:

I offer these services to my customers because I know not everyone enjoys a trip to Hobby Lobby or Michaels. However, I want you to know that you can easily do this part yourself and save quite a bit of money if you watch for sales! My prices assume I will not be able to take advantage of sales when I purchase a mat and/or frame for you.

*If you plan to frame your art yourself, you might prefer to pick out the frame first, since some frames come with a mat. Some people even like to purchase the frame and mat off-the-shelf first, and then order the art to match. This is typically less expensive than ordering a custom-size frame and mat.

Backorder? When will this artwork be completed?

The status of all my commission items is “backorder” because I don’t have a way to schedule commission work on this platform. Generally, I create each work of art in the sequence it is ordered and your ‘place in line’ is set when you pay for your item. I have to limit the number of commissions I can take each week, so if you need the item by a certain date, be sure to contact me ahead of time to find out if that’s possible!
