Things to note:

Framing not necessary for oil portraits

The finished pet portraits are delivered unframed.

splined canvas portrait

You do no need to incur extra framing costs as the oil portraits are painted on splined canvas boards (left). Not canvas panels. Splined canvas boards cost more but offer great convenience. Splined canvas boards are pre-primed and pre-stretched - and ready for display without a frame, any time, anywhere.

But if you wish to custom-frame the painting, a professional bespoke frame-maker will be able to find a beautiful frame to hold the artwork.


Mounting for pencil drawings

Finished graphite pencil and coloured pencil drawings will come with a temporary backing as support - a PH-neutral plain mat (from Daler Rowney UK or equivalent). This helps to prevent the artwork from creasing or warping.

If you would like an archival, museum-quality mounting board as mat backing for the pencil drawing, please consult a professional bespoke frame-maker. The frame-maker will also be able to advise you on the cost of framing a pencil drawing.

Pencil drawings will have at least one-inch (2.5 cm) margin around the painting to allow for framing.

Trusted brands and high quality materials

High quality materials are used for creating your pet portrait.

For oil portraits, I use Winsor and Newton's Artisan Water Mixable Oil. This new range of oil paints are acid-free, non-toxic, and more expensive than traditional solvent-soluble oil paints. The canvas used for the oil pet portraits are made of 100% cotton and directly imported from Europe.

For coloured pencil and graphite pencil drawings, I use only high quality, archival Stonehenge Paper, Daley Rowney Heavyweight Cartridge Paper, or similar range of non-acid paper.

Estimated completion time

It may take four to eight weeks to complete a pet portrait. It depends on the chosen medium and the number of paintings and drawings I am working on when you place your order.


The above prices are quoted in Singapore dollars. For international orders, use the currency converter to get an estimate cost. The final cost will depend on the day-of-transaction conversion rates and the exchanges rates charged by your credit card company. Shipping costs for overseas orders are extra.


50% deposit is required before work on the portrait begins. Rest of the pet portrait fee must be paid before the finished portrait is delivered.

Payment is by cash or cheque for portraits commissioned in Singapore. Payment by Paypal for overseas commissions.


Commissioned pet portraits are sold for personal use only.
