I am not taking on any new commissions at this time as my books are full.


If you are interested in a commission in the future, please email me to be put on the waiting list and I shall contact you in due course. If you wanted it for a special occasion then give me the dates and I will try to accommodate if at all possible.

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. 

 

Copyright:

I retain the copyright to all works commissioned by the client. No artwork may be reproduced or altered without my written consent. I will not produce prints of your artwork to be sold, however they may be used for display or promotional purposes.
 
Packaging and Shipping:

Mounted pieces that are to be posted will be carefully packaged and posted next day tracked and signed delivery. Postage, package and handling starts from £15 for UK. Please enquire for overseas shipping.
Full payment must be paid before I ship the artwork. I will provide the client with tracking details.

Payment of import duty may be liable in some countries, which is the sole responsibility of the client.

 

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:
