Polo’s Portraits

Paintings by


This site has been set up for people to commission portraits of their family members or friends.

All you have to do is to contact me by email attaching a high resolution photograph of the person that you would like painted. If you could attach other photos that show the situation you would like them portrayed in front of (ie their favourite place) and if you would like other wildlife or pets involved in the painting, let me know and I will create a composition for you to approve before painting begins. Once the composition has been approved, I will accept a deposit of half the agreed price of the painting before I start painting and the rest upon completion. If a frame is required the extra money will be added to the final payment. Prices include packing & postage and an idea of cost by media, size and material can be found on my Pet portrait page.

Payment can be made by Paypal or cash if you are local to Oxford. I will not accept cheques. Direct bank transfers may be accepted upon request.

Call or email me if you have any questions.  01865 721848  info@phillarsen.plus.com

Giclée prints of your portrait can be ordered if required.

Printing is on the highest grade Acid Free heavy weight Art paper (Elegance Velvet) or alternatively direct onto Cotton Canvas (Chromata White) and matt varnished using Giclée technology. This ensures that the prints will not fade within 75 years of your purchase.

I can offer a high quality Professional Framing service to all my clients. Framing is very personal as some people like all their frames to match. I therefore only offer this service on request and at extra cost. Please contact me if you need to discuss framing.

I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed. Thanks for taking the time to look at my website.
