Dawn is happy to discuss commissions for wildlife paintings and is frequently asked to paint pet portraits.
Dawn’s reputation as an animal illustrator has been built on painting and drawing highly detailed, life-like studies. Dawn is not a pet portrait artist and will only accept commissions where she feels she can create a portrait that both inspires her and reflects her skill and style of illustration. Consequently, Dawn prefers to see and photograph the subject herself, but will consider a client’s own photographs provided they are in sharp focus, of high resolution and reflect the character of her own artwork.

Commissioned portraits are priced in line with the cost of her own original artwork and extra expenses may be added if she needs to travel a long distance to obtain the reference material. Each commission takes approximately a month or more to complete, although the time will vary depending upon the client's specifications and Dawn's schedule. The total cost reflects not only the many hours required to paint the portrait, but also the time and preparation necessary to complete the process.

Prices start from £900

Prices for a commissioned portrait start from £900 and increase from there depending on the size and complexity of the portrait. A 50% deposit would be required before the process is started.
