Commissions

I tend to paint what inspires me and then I sell them on in different ways when they are finished, knowing that when they are bought, they go to a good home. There are times though when something more personal to you is desired such as your home as a portrait or a favourite holiday photo as a painting, so I do undertake commissions. Contact me to discuss anything you have in mind, either by phone, email. Details can be found on the contact page.

* These prices are based on one animal/person in the picture. Should you wish to have more than one subject in one mount, please contact me for the pricing structure.
To produce the best likeness I require good clear photographs that I prefer to take myself wherever possible, however your own photos taken outside with natural lighting can be accepted if they meet my needs. More than one would be beneficial, as this helps me to get a clearer picture of the character of the subject.
For any commission:
Once photographs have been received or taken, a 20% non-refundable deposit is required before I start the painting, to cover the cost of paints and materials.
For local commissions (within 50 miles of Bournemouth) the balance is due on delivery of artwork.
For non-local commissions (more than 50 miles from Bournemouth) I will send you a copy of the completed work via email or post for your approval. On approval, I will then require the balance due before sending you the final work. Please allow up to 10 working days when paying by cheque due to clearance times.
*please note that colours do vary from monitor to monitor, so colour accuracy may differ between images shown via email/website and the finished art work.
10% discount available on multiple orders.
10% loyalty discount for previous customers.
All prices are for unframed work provided with a mount, and exclude any costs for postage and packing
Payment can be made by cash, cheque or PayPal
