Commissions for 2022 are fully booked

Each piece is carefully designed and burned by hand, customized to your liking. I choose cuts of wood that best compliment the design, and use the images you provide of your beloved pet or favourite animal to render the most detail and character as possible. 

Prior to burning, I will create a compositional sketch, which will then be sent to you for your approval. The wood I typically use is either cherry or maple, depending on supplier availability, and I sand every piece to a 220 grit. Once the artwork is complete, I provide the choice of either a Tung Oil based finish or a Water Based varnish to seal the artwork with. The tung oil will deepen the hues of the wood with a satin finish, whereas the water based finish will dry clear and matte, not changing the colour of the wood. 

The prices below are inclusive of your desired design, consultation, sketches, and cost of materials. Your piece may include florals, foliage, multiple animals, or a background that falls within my portfolio. At no extra charge I can add a wire on the back for easy hanging, add names/date on the front or a small inscription on the back. 


Below is my set list of pricing and corresponding sizes. Due to the nature of wood burning and the hyper-realistic style of my work, in order for me to render the most detail and capture your pet's character in the best way I possibly can, certain sizes may not be appropriate for the design you are looking for. If I feel that your specifications would better match a different size option, I will discuss this with you. 


You may refer to my past work for examples on what my art style looks like and what to expect from your order. I love to draw ideas including animals, florals, fauna, birds, sea-creatures, and most other nature-related elements. I do not offer portraits of people. 

I require a 50% non-refundable deposit prior to beginning your order to secure your spot. Your place in my commissions is not confirmed until the deposit is paid. Invoices will be sent via email, where payment can be made through e-transfer or online with debit or credit. All payments are final and in Canadian Dollars.

Please note, it can take up to 4-8 weeks for artwork to be complete, depending on your place in my commissions and how many pieces are ahead of yours. If you are ordering outside of Canada and intend to gift your order for the holidays, I will prioritize your order so it ships to you in time.


Delivery via Canada Post within Canada takes up to 1-7 business days, US orders deliver in 5-10 business days, and International can take 1-3 weeks. Please plan in advance if you require shipping. Local porch pickup in Oakville is available, specify which option you require within the order form and please only select order date if it is a gift or needed for a special occasion. 

Some countries have strict policies on wood being imported. If you are ordering outside of Canada & the US, I will need to look into your country's customs policies to ensure that I can send my artwork to you. 

$10 of each pet portrait is donated to MUTTS Dog Rescue. 

All wood is sourced locally and sustainably.
