Special Interest Commissions

Since my work is commission-based, I only have opportunities to embroider portraits that I get requests for. In order to expand my portfolio, I have created this special interest list. These are pets/animals that I would really love to embroider and ones that would help me build my skill level.

Animals on this list have some priority over my waitlist requests. Even though I have not embroidered portraits of these animals before please do not worry about quality! I have no doubt I will be able to accurately capture their likeness in thread.

If you would like to commission a portrait of an animal and don’t have any reference photos yourself we can work together to find a royalty/commercial free image to use or you can pay to license one.

High-quality photos are required to work from for requests off the special interest list. Submissions of these animals are not guaranteed to be taken.
