Own a Unique Original, or Commission a Custom Piece

My passion lies in creating original, one-of-a-kind artworks using my signature painting technique. Each piece is a unique expression and cannot be exactly replicated.

Bring Your Vision to Life:

Do you have a favourite piece from my portfolio that sparks inspiration? We can collaborate on a custom artwork tailored to your specific needs and preferences. Perhaps you have a desired size, colour palette, or subject matter in mind. I’m happy to discuss the possibilities and bring your vision to life.

Ultimately, the choice is yours! Let’s work together to find the perfect piece for your space.

What to Consider Before Commissioning Art

Before embarking on your commissioned art journey, take a moment to consider these key factors to ensure you get a piece you’ll love:

  • Purpose: What is the artwork’s intended role? Do you want it to commemorate a special occasion, complement your existing decor, or be a conversation starter in your space?
  • Size and Medium: Consider the artwork’s size in relation to your designated space. I offer a variety of mediums, each with its own unique characteristics (e.g., oil paint offers rich textures, while watercolour creates a light and airy feel).
  • Budget: Commissioned art is an investment. Be upfront about your budget so we can discuss options that fit your needs.
  • Timeline: Depending on the complexity of the piece, commissions can take time to complete. Let me know your desired timeframe, and we’ll work together to create a realistic timeline.

Still have questions? No problem! I offer free consultations to discuss your vision and answer any questions you may have.

What are the Costs of Commissioning Art?

Transparency throughout the commissioning process is key to achieving your desired outcome. While each project is unique, I do offer a general pricing structure based on size and complexity.

Here are some factors that may affect the cost of your commissioned piece:

  • Size: Larger artworks naturally require more materials and time, impacting the overall cost.
  • Level of Detail and Complexity: Highly detailed pieces with intricate elements will take longer to complete, potentially affecting the price.
  • Finish: I offer a variety of finishes, such as varnish or resin, each with its own protective and aesthetic qualities. Varnish provides a classic matte or glossy finish, while resin creates a more contemporary, high-gloss look. We can discuss the best option for your needs and budget.
  • Framed or Unframed: While framing is not always necessary, it can enhance the presentation of your artwork. I can offer framing recommendations or leave this aspect up to you.

How Long Do Art Commissions Take?

The time it takes to complete your commissioned piece depends on its complexity and size. Larger artworks and those with intricate details require more time and meticulous attention. My artistic process prioritises quality, and I allow ample time for each layer of paint, varnish, or resin to dry and cure properly before moving on to the next step. This ensures your artwork will last for generations to come.

To secure your spot in my commission schedule, I require a fifty percent [50%] deposit upfront. The remaining balance will be due upon completion and your approval of the artwork. Throughout the process, I’ll keep you informed of the progress and answer any questions you may have within twenty four [24] hours.

Your input and vision are important to me, and I want you to feel involved in this creative journey.
