Pricing Guide
Pet Portraits are available in 4 different sizes (A5, 7 x 10 inch, A4 & A3). If you are wanting more than one pet on a Pet Portrait, there will be an additional charge of £15 per pet. Please makesure you choose the correct options before checking out in the shop area.

Commission work can be paid either by bank transfer/cash or card machine. I require a 50% deposit when you place your order for a personalised commission. Personlised commissions can be ordered via email [email protected].

Online Courses
All of the online courses are listed on my website and social media pages. Our online courses can be purchased and downloaded via our Etsy shop.

Handmade Products

Due to their nature, Shining Bright Arts, Crafts & Illustration cannot guarantee that handmade Products will be identical in appearance or will not contain imperfections that occur naturally during the production process.

Dried Flowers

Please keep in mind that no two flowers are the same. The product(s) you receive might vary slightly from the product picture due to the nature of your product(s)

The colours of products when viewed on your computer monitor may appear different than the actual colour of the merchandise. We make every attempt to give you a good representation of the available colours for each product sold, but unfortunately we cannot guarantee an exact match. Dye lot variance of 1 to 2 shades is considered normal.

Handle with care as dried flowers are delicate and it is quite normal for some petals to drop. Dried flowers last for months, to help preserve them - keep them away from direct light, heat and moisture. The colour will inevitably fade over time, but keeping them away from direct light will slow this process.
