We love illustrating your pets (see our rogues gallery below). You can choose to have your cat, dog, rabbit or bird in their natural beauty or we can dress them in a whacky outfit of your choice. No suggestion is too outlandish. We have drawn one in a Sherlock Holmes outfit, a cat as a dentist, a dog in a football top and a parrot in a Hawaiian shirt. We have had tons of fun painting the clothes on the animals from ditsy print dresses to punk leather jackets. Each painting will be a 100% original, painted in watercolour and inks. Abi and Roz will both work on it. How fab is that? Two artists on one piece of work.
We work from a photo of your pet, preferably taken face on and in natural light. It is best to either kneel or lie down to take the photo. We don't trace the picture, we work from it so we like to have a couple of snaps that capture your pet's personality.
Each commission is different but here is a guide. We usually work to fit a 12” x 16” mount (this makes it easy to buy a standard frame). The Tipperleyhill signature look is to have the animal in the bottom half of the page.
All black and white only portraits start from £175. A black and white animal with coloured clothes starts from £225. Full colour portraits start from £400 (plus postage). We don't often say no, so show us your pet, we will do anything from mouse to tiger!
