How do I Commission Something?

I am happy to take on commissions as I enjoy making artwork of places or things which have a special meaning for the client. I can work from photographs (supplied on paper, or emailed electronically), and will always discuss the subject of the painting with you and what sort of size medium may suit the image best. I can supply commissioned work unframed, and advise on suitable framing options, or I can take care of the framing for you as well if you prefer.  


Please get in touch by email to if you would like to discuss a commission - small or large. Commissions start from approx £120 (A4 size watercolour painting) or £150 (acrylic or oil painting on wood panel).
