Commission me for your paintings or drawings which will be created specifically for you!

 Also small hand made sculptures and you can even commission me to create some hand-knitted wrist warmers if your preferred colour if you'd like! If you see something in my shop that you like but would prefer a different colour or would like me to make or paint something similar - use the form below. 

I am pleased to offer artwork commissions to you to enable me to share my artistic skills to capture your ideas. I am also happy to offer you the chance to commission your own small sculpture. Dragons, fantasy, wildlife and more.

Commissioning your own painting or sculpture is a great way to express yourself and to add a unique and special touch to any living space.

Whether you are looking to treat yourself or to give a special and unique gift to a friend, colleague or family member, a commissioned piece of art can be an amazing way to find that special something that will be loved and cherished for years to come.

Would you like to commission your own special painting or sculpture or are you looking for a special and unique gift?

What happens - the process of bringing your vision to life
  • You fill and send the form - make sure you add all info you think relevant. Size, preferred materials and subject matter. 

  • I will then get back to you via email to gather more in-depth details regarding the work. 

  • I will then create some initial quick sketches for your approval along with a pricing quote and timeline.

  • Once approved, I will create a special listing or invoice for a deposit and set a payment plan that works for both of us.

  • This process typically takes between day and a week as we finalise the details of your commission. 

  • Next, the final detailed sketch (if applicable/requested) will be sent to you for approval.This sketch will allow you to visualise how your painting will look and enable you to make any necessary changes before I move on to the painting stage.

  • Once the initial commission has been agreed on, any materials will be ordered if necessary. After which, space for you commission will be prepared.  

  • Now the 'arting' begins.

  • You will receive progress photos at least once a week until completion.

  • After completion, you will receive a final photo of the work for approval, after which, shipping/delivery/collection of your commission will be arranged.

Commission FAQs

  • Are you currently open for commissions?

  •  This button says Yes! ->

  • This button will change to No and red when I'm not open for commissions.

 

  • Can I commission an artwork similar to another artists work I've seen?

  • No! All artists work is copyrighted so it would be wrong to do so from a legal point of view as well as being a really horrible   thing to do morally.

  • Can I commission an artwork similar to one that you've already done?

  • Yes!

  • Will you paint/sculpt anything I request? 

  • No.

  • Please look at my art and make sure you recognise the style of my work as that will show in your commission. You are commissioning me to paint your vision in my own unique style. You should always choose an artist whose style works for your particular idea. 

  • Also anything I feel is negative which I would feel wrong to paint or create would be refused. 

  • What about revisions to the work?

  • I am usually happy to make revisions to the work within reason. Small adjustments. My aim is to get the work completed for you within the timeline quoted and revisions, especially big ones, could throw this out. I had one many years ago that I worked on for 2 months, when nearing completion they decided they wanted the figures they'd asked me to paint to be placed in a theatre on a stage with the audience watching on - from them being in a dead end street on a dark night! I said no and stopped the work. The change would have meant me starting from scratch again and 2 months wasted already. So basically, some reviews which are reasonable is quite usual and expected, massive changes from the initial agreement are not!
