Commissions are a large part of the work that I do.
A commission is very personal request, whether human or animal.
Many of my commissions come through recommendation, so I take to heart very seriously, the responsibility of creating the treasured painting that they have in mind.
I work with the client, both in the setting, detail, likeness and the effects they want to create.
Many of my commissions are a 'secret gift.' This presents its own challenges but is also rewarding when client and the recipient have received the painting.
I use photographs, for my portraits but if possible, it helps a great deal to meet the 'sitter or subject' in order to have idea of characteristics and personality.
I try to have the opportunity to take photographs myself, which is not always possible but usually the client knows essentially what they have in mind, so I can work with the client to create their painting.
Currently, it is difficult to be able to visit clients to discuss a painting but with careful planning we can make the safe, distance arrangements.
Please contact me through the website, phone or messenger-Facebook or Instagram to discuss requirements and I will be very happy to help.
Please contact me for commissions prices and quotes.
Prices vary greatly according to the content, size, complexity and medium.
Framing requirements vary greatly, according to the clients style but I can arrange framing and provide quotes.
A commissioned painting is very personal and in my experience, has to not just be 'a likeness' but bring to life and
say something special about that person in an image of the person who is, or was so very special to the client.
I am happy to work with you especially if you have a specific budget in mind.
