How it Works












 Direct Art Australia has become Australia's most affordable high quality Portrait from photo company.


...It's time to reveal our secret!

We are in contact with you regulary while the portrait is being ensure the portrait is being painted to your high standards....AND...drumroll please....

Direct Art Australia uses the 50% Deposit to Start Program. We only need a 50% deposit to start your process. It's what we call Lowering the Entry Barrier and has moved the risk away from the customer! It is such a fantastic safe guard that our artists have been working non-stop to fulfil the orders flowing from the new system.

The 50% Start Progam means you won't pay another cent until our artists have finished the portrait, sent you a big photo and you listened to your comments. They will do any addition or modification until you say 'Ok...THAT is WHAT I WANT!

We make the ordering process very easy through our online 'Easy Order Module'

The biggest and best advantage of working with us is that you are in contact with the artist - we will send you photos of how the painting is progressing AND you can suggest any last minute changes or alterations.

Our Artists are professionally trained and will not stop until you are 100% satisfied. We keep going until EVERY detail is PERFECT for you. (Which is usually the first time!)
