Whoever you are, I will create a custom portrait of you (or person of your choice) as a mermaid / merman / mer-person. You will receive a high-quality print of the original artwork.
Each print will be signed and numbered, and comes packaged with care. All artwork and photographs copyright Elly Strigner 2017.
Print is sold unframed.
21cm x 29.7cm in size / A4 portrait, printed on heavyweight paper.
PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS!!
How it works:
1. Place order
2. Email reference photos to elly [!at] ellystrigner.co.uk or via Etsy messages. Please state clearly your name and order number!!
3. Portrait will be hand-drawn, painted, and adjusted digitally as necessary.
4. Artwork will be printed and posted to you first-class - you'll be updated on your order throughout the process.
Please allow 21 business days from date of order for completion and 3-5 business days for delivery. As this is a custom order (and I am pretty fussy about doing things properly) it takes time and I cannot guarantee it will be quicker than this, sorry.
Your personal data is private and I will not share your photograph or personal details with any third parties. I will only store the data you send me on Etsy.com or on my professional email account (above).
If you would prefer NOT to send a photograph but still want a mermaid portrait, please provide me with as much verbal description as possible in the 'Personalisation' section.
