Portrait Commissions




A commissioned portrait is a personal and unique gift and hopefully an enjoyable experience to be remembered.  If you are unsure which style or medium you would like or have any other questions simply get in touch with me to start the ball rolling and I will guide you through the process.

An artist with over 25 years experience I work with you to create bespoke, original artworks. As pets rarely stay still long enough I work from good quality photographs and preferably photographing your pet for you. (if you are local to me)  I believe this allows me to know a little of your pets personality and character with the added benefit of being an invaluable aid when creating their portrait.  If your portrait is of a child or children the same process outlined above would apply or if an adult and you prefer a series of two hour sittings can be arranged where I will sketch directly from life which the portrait will be based on.  If you will be sending your own photographs please read – Tips on taking a great photo 

Simply contact me and we can discuss your requirements where I will quote a price and timescale.

Once the commission has been placed I ask for a £50 deposit which will secure your quote and place in my work schedule. This deposit will of course be deducted from the total cost.

It can take four to six weeks to complete a watercolour commission and oils would be approximately 3-4 months depending on current workload.  It also gets incredibly busy around Christmas so please do bear this in mind when placing your commission.

I look forward to hearing from you.
