Terms and Conditions

Please make sure you read through these fully, by commissioning a portrait from Illustrations by Shannagh-leigh it means you agree to these terms and conditions. 

 If you have any questions comments or concerns please feel free to contact me. 


A non refundable deposit of 25% is required to secure your painting slot before any progress on the painting will be started. Any commission under £100 must be paid in full upfront. Any payments remaining must be paid upon completion within 7 days.

Extensions can be granted to the artists discretion.

Any payment plans can be discussed and granted to the artists discretion.

Failure to complete any payments discussed may result in termination of the commission process and the sale of the painting (the painting will be reworked so it no longer resembles the commissioned subject).

No painting will be sent out until the full payments have been made, if any commissions where paid with cheques, cheques must be cleared before commissions will be sent.
