Commission a custom made, unique piece of artwork, designed especially for you.

 

Why commission a painting?

 

With colours that match your home decor, or maybe a painting of a family pet, requesting a commission allows you to have a tailor made artwork based on your own ideas or preferences. Despite nature being my subject matter of choice, I am open to all ideas and colour schemes. I always enjoy the challenge of painting something different! The benefit of a commissioned painting is that you can decide exactly what sized canvas or frame would work in your own home. 

What can I expect from the commission process?

The first step is to fill out the form below with a brief description of the sort of work you are looking for, with any specifications included, and I will get back to you as soon as possible. If you are hoping to have a completed work for a specific date, make sure to leave plenty of time, as there may be a waiting list. 

After all the specifications have been agreed, you will receive a rough estimate of the total cost, however this can change due to any adjustments or additions to the artwork during the process.

How much will it cost?

A commissioned artwork will cost more than a pre-done original, due to the extra time and attention given to discussing ideas, potential pre-painting sketches, and fitting your exact requirements. If you have a budget, I can give you examples of the type of work and sizing I can offer for that price range. For work that will cost more than £150, I take a non-refundable deposit to purchase the materials and start the preparations for the commission. Once started, the cost will be calculated based on the time spent and amount of product used which can be unpredictable, however after discussing the work, I will give you an estimate of what the cost will be. To get a quote, please get in touch and I will get back to you shortly. 

Artwork delivery & collection

Paintings can be delivered anywhere in the UK, and will be sent by Royal Mail 1st class. The costs of delivery will vary depending on the size and weight of the artwork. If you would prefer to collect the painting from my studio, we can arrange a date for the artwork to be collected with no shipping costs involved.
