Pet or People Portrait Pricing
What Do You Want? 
How big a painting do you want? For animal paintings, do you want head and shoulders or full body? How many pets in the painting? Do you want a simple or complex background? Do you want a painting of the pet parent with the pet? For candid paintings of people, the smallest size painting is a 12 x 16 inches. The more people in the painting, the higher the fee. Once you know what you want, it is easy to figure the fee. Some clients want paintings, others want drawings. Shelley can do both.  

Some of Shelley’s clients have contributed with family members or co-workers to commission a painting for a holiday, birthday, anniversary or retirement gift. The smallest size animal portrait painting is an 8 x 10 inch, gallery-wrapped canvas or traditional canvas. You can have one pet or as many pets as you like. Shelley has painted a portrait as large as 36 x 60 inches. She also creates black and white pencil drawings. Each painting or drawing is custom to your particular desires.

What Determines the Fee 
•  Size of painting
•  Whether the painting is head and shoulders or full body
•  Whether you want one pet or person or several pets or several people in the same painting
•  Whether the background is simple or complex, and
•  If you are within a 1 hour radius of my studio, Shelley offers the service of
    taking the photo of you and/or your pet for your painting 
The more you want, the bigger the investment. Please feel free to contact Shelley at 203.730.0664 or to discuss what you are envisioning and your budget so we can work out what is best for you.
