Over the years I have been commissioned to do many private pieces for individuals and corporate clients.
A private commission is a one-off original painting, that I can do for special occasions like Anniversaries, retirements, and big birthdays.
I like to use a personal approach when working with a commission. I always ask for several photos of the person or to even meet in person, this allows me to get an overall sense of the personality that I'm working with, it's always important to capture that essence of a person, or even a much loved pet.
Painting a portrait posthumously can be a very sensitive matter and I like to approach it with the utmost care. To capture the essence of a person from a photo I like to work from several different clear photos of the person. This can be discussed in consultation.
What you need to know
When commissioning a painting the following will be discussed and agreed upon before painting begins: Size, Budget, Delivery Date, Composition, and medium.
