Thank you for taking an interest in my artwork.

I’m afraid my waiting list for commissions is closed for the time being due to work load.

 

 I will notify on here, on my social media accounts and will also send out an email to those who have subscribed to my mailing list when I am in a position to re-open.

 

For those who are already on my list, I thank you for your patience!  

If you already have some photo references in mind, please make sure that the photo/photos are of a high quality in order for me to do the piece justice.  I reserve the right turn down anything I do not deem suitable so if it is of a pet that has passed, please send me the

photo so I can let you know in advance if this is something I can work with.

 

Thank you all again so much for your interest and support.

When you get towards the top of my list, I will contact you for the next step which includes selecting a photo, sizes and compositions. It is worth trying to get some good photos in the meantime. (see photography tips below).  Please note that in order to do a piece justice I can only work from quality photographs and reserve the right turn down anything I do not deem suitable. Once we have agreed on everything, I will send you an agreement to sign and return, at which point a £50% deposit is required. This deposit is non-refundable unless an unlikely event prevents me from doing your piece. The balance will be due on competition.

Photography Tips!

It is best to use a camera so as much detail can be picked up as possible. Camera phones are not ideal unless it is one of great spec!

Take photos of your animal outside in natural light.

Try to get on your pets level (eye level) and make sure that the picture is fully in focus and there isn’t a ‘flash’ in their eyes.

Make sure you send the photos over in their original format (so don’t crop or edit the photos) as this can decrease the size and resolution of the image.

Please then send them to art@sophiefois.co.uk as an attachment or if you would prefer to post a memory stick please send to:

Orchard Cottage, Turville , Nr Henley on Thames, Oxford shire, RG9 6QU, ENGLAND

Ultimately the decision is yours on what pose/look you want from your animal as you know that certain personality they have and what portrays them best!

Here are some good examples:
