Natalie who commisioned the portrait for her partner James
Chicken and her owner Ruth
"I recently commissioned a portrait of my beautiful Beddlington terrier ‘Chicken’. The whole process was really simple, I just emailed a few photos of Chicken and the rest was left to Shaun to create! I received regular updates as the portrait came to life and I was amazed by how quickly Shaun was able to complete the finished piece. I’m absolutely thrilled with the portrait, it captures not just Chicken's look, but also the essence of his personality through his expression and eyes. It's a piece of art that my family will treasure forever."

Once we've discussed your requirements and you have supplied us with your photographs we will create a rough layout showing the format and proportions your commission will take, we will ensure you're happy with this before progressing.
During which we will send you a minimum of two emails showing the artworks progression.
Upon finishing the commission we will email you with an image of the artwork, where possible any changes that need to be made can be discussed.
The finished piece will be presented unframed, wrapped, with a white bevelled edge mount, backing board, signed by Shaun with a certificate of authenticity.
Items can be collected or delivered by hand if local.
