Commissioning a piece of art is easy and fun, whether you are looking for a piece to complement a room or give as a one of a kind gift, either way you are having something created that is just for you. A painting is something that can be treasured forever and may even gain in value, so being the proud owner of an original piece of art is also a great long term investment.


Commissioning an Abstract painting

If you find a painting you like in the Abstract Art section and would like something similar, but in a different size or colour I will endeavour to create it to your exact specifications.  Alternatively, if you have an idea of your own in mind, I would be happy to discuss this with you.

Abstract paintings take approximately 2-4 weeks to complete.


Commissioning a Portrait painting

Portrait paintings are a unique way of capturing a moment in time.  They become part of your family history and can be enjoyed for many generations.  If you would like to commission a portrait just send me a photograph either in a digital format or print out and I will gladly discuss with you the style, size and price.

Portrait paintings take approximately 2-3 months to complete.


Commissioning an Animal Portrait

When I paint wild animals, especially on such a large scale, I feel that it allows me to get up close to an animal, which I would otherwise never be able to.  As with portrait paintings, I work primarily from photographic reference and I have a lot of photos at hand from numerous trips to Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Kent, so if you would like to have a lion in your living room or have a specific animal in mind, I will see what I can do!  If by any chance, you happen to have a clear photo of a wild animal or perhaps even of a precious pet, I would happily paint that instead, just send me the image to discuss the style, size and price.

Animal portraits take approximately 2-3 months to complete.


The Animal Within

“Which animal would you be?”

Discover your wild side, be painted as half the animal that best represents you and uncover what you share with the animal kingdom.  All you need to do is send me a photograph and if you have it, a clear image of the animal of your choice, alternatively just send your photo and I will find a suitable animal image.  The price of this style of painting is dependant on the canvas size, please contact me to discuss this.

“Animal Within” paintings take approximately 2-3 months to complete.


Commissioning a Drawing

Drawings are a great gift and an affordable way of owning an original artwork.  If you would like to commission a pencil drawing of a person, animal, your favourite architecture, or just about anything, send me a photograph to discuss the size and price.

Drawings take approximately 3-4 weeks to complete, though this is dependant on the size.


General information about commissioning a piece of art

Prices for all paintings and drawings vary depending on the size and the time it takes to produce the artwork.  On your acceptance of the quotation, for the work to be carried out a non-refundable deposit, which is deducted from the final price, is required before the commission can be started:

  • 35% non-refundable deposit is required for abstract paintings and all drawings
  • 45% non-refundable deposit is required for portraits of both people and animals and also for ‘The Animal Within’ paintings

Once the artwork has been completed I will email you a photograph to ensure you are happy with the finished piece and I then request that the final payment is made prior to delivery.

Please note that the lengths of times quoted as being needed to complete an artwork are to act as a guide as this is dependant on current workload and the materials in stock.
