    I will reply to you within 2 business days with:

    • An invoice for payment of the 25% deposit, payable via PayPal or Credit Card
    • The answers to any questions you have asked
    Step 4.

    Once I’ve received your 25% deposit, I will start creating your horse portrait and will have it completed within 21 days upon commencement for standard sizing unless the fast track option is selected above in which case you will have your portrait completed in 14 days. Required time for larger horse portrait sizes will be discussed upon request.

    Step 5.

    As soon as the portrait is completed, I will email you a photo of the completed work. I’ve never had a client who wasn’t completely happy with their finished portrait however, for your peace of mind, if you don’t love your horse portrait you’ll have the opportunity to request alterations to the portrait.

    Any alterations requested will be agreed upon and completed within 3 business days, after which I will email you a photo of the horse portrait with the alterations you’ve requested.

    Step 6.

    Once you’ve confirmed you love your horse portrait, I’ll email you an invoice for payment of the balance of the portrait price, which will be payable via PayPal or secure bank transfer.

    Step 7.

    Once I’ve received full payment of the balance, I’ll post your unframed horse portrait in a flat-packed parcel to your delivery address within 2-4 business days. I use Australia Post and provide free standard shipping Australia wide.  International post may take up to 7 business days depending on location.

    Once the parcel has been shipped, I’ll email you to provide the Australia Post tracking code, an estimated date of delivery and care instructions for your new artwork.

    More helpful information about care and handling of your portrait can be found on my Blog page.

    Step 8.

    Shortly after the estimated delivery date, I’ll send you an email to make sure you’ve safely received your horse portrait.
