HOW TO COMMISSION A PAINTING
Commissioning your equestrian painting (Polo player, equine portrait, rider on horse, rider performing barrel racing, dressage, showjumping, horse racing, rodeo scene, portraits of horses etc.) is a very personal experience. Such works make wonderful gifts and family treasures to enjoy for a lifetime. Horses have always been at the heart of my inspiration.
Contact me by e-mail at or on WhatsApp +39 333 95 66 640 to discuss your wishes and preferences for a customised painting or drawing.
All original works of art are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
For the execution of the painting or drawing, high-resolution photographs (1 MB or larger) are required.
- Pencil drawing: from 3 to 6 working days;
- Oil painting: from 2 to 4 weeks (this is to allow the painting to dry completely before being shipped);
- Drawing with coloured pencils from 7 to 15 working days.
If the work is needed for a specific date, for example a birthday gift, then please let me know and I will do my best to achieve this. However, it is best to give me as much time as possible.
Execution times may vary.
To obtain a quote for a work, please send an email to or a message via WhatsApp +39 333 95 66 640. A non-refundable 50% deposit is required to commission a work.
The deposit will secure your place on my waiting list. I work on a first-come-first-served basis. I will do my best to keep you updated during the creation of your work of art and I will send photos as I proceed so that you can give me feedback and, if you wish, make changes (if possible) before the work is completed.
Once the work is finished, a photo will be sent by e-mail. After approving the finished work, the balance is due. Payment is by PayPal to my e-mail or I can send an PayPal invoice for prepayment of the entire amount in a single payment (on customer request). Payment via PayPal protects the buyer and that's why I chose it. PayPal converts your currency to the required currency (euros).
100% guarantee. In agreement with the customer, the work will be sent by courier with insured, traceable and guaranteed shipping. When sending the work, you will receive an email with a link and a shipping code where you can monitor the delivery status.

In any case, the work will be carefully packaged to ensure its protection. Shipping costs and times depend on customer preferences.
