How to get your pet portrait

Getting your pet portrait painted is a very easy process. The Pet Portrait is an ideal gift for someone you care about, wedding gift, birthday gift or yourself to remember the pet that is an important part of your family. I can do the painting from a photography or in studio photo shoot. If the pet has passed on, it helps to have a selection of photography’s.

For the portrait we can then discuss about the size, composition and the painting options(watercolour, oil or encaustic)  and framing. Cost start at €250 for a 30x30cm framed painting. The normal timeline is 6 weeks, but this can change if the painting is bigger. Based on our discussion on portrait position, I will give you 3 proposals for composition. Once the painting is 80% we can discuss the fine detail, you can make changes at this stage. A frame option is then confirmed and the finishing off process such as varnish, glass, mounting decided.

Final day is when you look at the complete painting and if you are happy payment can be made and it is yours.

Pet Memorial Commissions

Pets mean so much to the family and when they pass away their absence is really difficult. With a memorial painting, you (or your loved one) can celebrate what your pet meant to you. I can work off previous photographs and create that timeless painting that will remember all the good times you shared with them.

“Max was part of the family, we will never forget him. He brought life to our house, he was always there. So having the painting of him in our kitchen brings back the good memories. He was a real character and had a lovely nature”, Eithna Moran


“Max” – RIP, Jan 2018..

I was looking to purchase a piece of art for a friend/work colleague, Katie, to celebrate her wedding. I was selecting the gift on behalf of my team and wanted to get it right for both the team and my friend. I was given Helen’s name and choose the perfect piece, ‘Hello 408’. It is a beautiful piece and I know my friend, Katie, is proud to have the piece of art hanging in her home. For me personally, I would have a house full of Helen’s paintings if I could.

Dealing with Helen was a pleasure, very professional, practical and helpful. Navigating, selecting and ordering through Helen’s website was a very easy process.
