You Supply:
If you would like to commission a Wall mounted Head or Textile Banner I will request an image of the animal/pet you are commissioning, Front and side views with a few Key measurements ( I will email this information to you). The images can either be sent in the post or emailed to me. Any markings, colouring or special features must be mentioned if you would like them to feature in the Commission.

A deposit will be taken for Wall mounted Heads and Textile Banners with the remainder paid on completion  prior to posting. Birds and Textile Portraits will require the full amount paying when placing the commission. Payments can be made via Paypal.

  • Banners will not be any larger than 90cm wide by 80cm high.

Materials:
