My name is Celeste Gillis, and I'm an artist who has been specializing in portraiture for the past decade; accepting commissions from clients throughout North America as well as overseas. I studied Fine Arts at the Ontario College of Art and Design, and have worked as an Art Consultant for various galleries, as well as curated several art shows and music events. I also love dogs, cats, horses & bunnies, and have made capturing their unique personalities my focus. If you are interested in commissioning a portrait, please browse the information below and feel free to contact me at email@example.com with any inquiries, or to to place your order.
NEW: I'm selling a few of my
acrylic paintings. Please click on images for details, or continue to
scroll down for charcoal commission information:
My charcoal portraits are $225 for a 14" x 17" drawing with one
pet, and $100 for a second pet in the same portrait. All portraits are
composed on archival quality vellum bristol, then spray coated with a
matte fixative. Please inquire for larger sizing options (incl. those
with more than 2 animals). Prices are in both CAD & USD.
TURNAROUND: Anywhere from 2-6 weeks, depending on my workload at the time. The Christmas season is particularly busy, so please have your orders in A.S.A.P. Also, if you have a specific deadline please let me know ahead of time so that I can accommodate your needs.
PHOTOS: Please provide one or more close up, clear and detailed photos of your pet(s). The larger the photos, the easier to work with. You can provide me with originals, or email me high resolution (large sized) digital pictures, which are even better. If you are not sure, feel free to send me photos and we can decide together.
PAYMENT: What I will require from you is a 50% deposit, either via cheque, PayPal, or direct deposit; with the balance and shipping paid upon completion. Please email me for further payment details and information.
FRAMING: I do not provide framing myself, but I can certainly provide suggestions for local framing. If you are on a budget, my 14" x 17" portraits work nicely with a standard 16" x 20" frame which can be purchased at most superstores.
DELIVERY: Shipping for charcoal portraits within Canada and
the US is a standard $30 for regular mail. Priority or International
shipping will require a custom quote which I would be happy to obtain
for you. If you are in the downtown Toronto area and are able to pick up
the piece in person (or if it's an easy commute for me) there is no
delivery charge. Shipping for acrylic paintings will vary depending on
location and require a custom quote.
GIFT CERTIFICATES: I offer Gift Certificates in any amount over $25. They have been popular as gifts, as well as submissions for raffles and charity events. Please inquire for details.
CONTACT: Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or if you are ready to place your order.
