I am currently taking a break from these commissions. Thank you to all of you who have given me the pleasure of painting and drawing precious moments in your lives.
It's a joy and honour to be asked to do a commission and be part of someones story.
These can be done from favourite photos of previous moments, but many are capturing a memory or an occasion like an engagement, a perfect swim, or a childhood memory.
Some commissions are to be given from friend to friend, some from child to mother, some are given just to say thank you. Others are as token of optimism or support and some are kept just to enjoy and remember a moment in time.
With each commission I complete, I include its very own little sketch book. This includes sketches I have done in the planning of your picture and colour swatches as I always test my colours and mix on paper. I love putting these together, each is a different size as each is unique. I think they are an art work in there own right and make a lovely addition to the story of the picture.
Intersted in a commission?
Contact me if you have an idea, I am always happy to discuss ideas with you and I will tell you if I think it will work or not within my style.
A commission is a very personal thing and I hope by our communications, which I like to be in written form, I will understand what is you want to capture in your picture.
I often work from a selection of photos and descriptions to build up the final picture, although I do also work from a single photo if you wish that to be re created in my style.
Prices vary according the complexity of the picture. I will give you quote when we have discussed your idea. Prices are from £75.
