Yes, as many pictures as you feel will help and that capture the essence or spirit of what we are trying to capture. For me there is never such a thing as to much information as I like to collect as much as I can to make your art so incredibly you!
This will depend on my schedule as well as the style and size of the piece. Normally 6-8 weeks is sufficient, although at Christmas it does get very busy so be sure to allow as much time as possible
Prices will vary with size and style. Generally, unless their is a lot more involved in the painting than normal, I do not charge extra for commissioned pieces. I like your art to be something that is special for a lifetime and possibly passed on from generation to generation.
The process is as follows … a 25% deposit is taken to book a block of time in my schedule and to cover the initial costs of the canvas and materials etc. Your responsibility is to supply me with as much information and pictures as possible, we will also discuss this personally and then you can just relax!
Once I have your work of art completed to a point where I feel comfortable to show you, usually at about 95% I will send images and make sure you are totally happy with what we have achieved in collaboration together, if anything needs to be added or subtracted now is the time. Then its time to varnish once you are in love! Balance is paid upon completion before the artwork leaves the studio.
Please note the copyright of any commission still belongs 100% to me and cannot be reproduced by you or anyone else in any form or fashion. It is for personal use only. However I am happy to organise reproductions for you for your family and friends.
A really good question! Firstly ask yourself what would you like in your painting, what is important to you? whether it be just you or your family or friends as well, heirlooms, pets, favourite jewellery, clothing, shoes etc. If you were looking at something in the ‘Women with Attitude’ series, maybe something you always say that is so typically you!
Then ask what style and possibly colours do you like? If that is important.
Next what sort of size and shape would suit your space or are you flexible?
I am always happy to chat and help you come up with ideas as to what might make a wonderful personalised painting. There is a gallery of some of my clients previously commissioned works that may inspire ideas as well. View Commissions Gallery.

If there is a piece of my art that you fall in love with … talk to me as I can recreate something similar but personalise it to you, it then tells your story and makes it extra special!
Artworks can also be created to suit your size and colour requirements.
If you need ideas and help as to what would suit your home or designated area best, send me pictures of your available space and the works you like, and I can digitally place them on your wall to help you visualise how your art will look.

Whilst it is said ‘imitation is the sincerest form of flattery’, Please DO NOT copy my artwork for any reason whatsoever without my permission!
I have worked really hard to create my own style and like any artist I have had to struggle and experiment to achieve my own uniqueness, spending countless hundreds of thousands of unpaid hours and frustration. Hence I believe I deserve to eat the fruit of my labour not anyone else. So my advice to others is that it far more fulfilling and truthful when you achieve that for yourself rather than stealing someone else’s intellectual and creative property . Thank you 🙂
