¨Benjamin¨ - Pastel & pastel pencils
¨Colin & Mia¨ - Acrylics on canvas

For commissions, prices start from £325.  Individual quotes will be given, to take into account the intricacy and size of the artwork, as well as the chosen medium.  I take commissions for both pets and people, and I work in both oils and pastels.

The following sizes and prices provide a rough guideline.  

10 x 12″ = £325
12 x 16″ = £450
16 x 20″ = £575

Commissions as gifts

If you are needing a commission by a certain date, please let me know as soon as you can, and I will let you know my availability.

 Payments & Postage

A non-refundable deposit of 20% is required before work begins, with the balance due upon completion. 

Postage for the UK will be included in the quote. For overseas delivery, I will give a postage cost along with the quote. 

Reference photos

It´s important that the photo/s you provide are clear and in focus, with good resolution.  Photos taken in natural daylight are ideal, avoiding bright sunshine.  Using a flash can cause the detail to be lost, and can create red-eye.   

Where possible, try to get take the photo at eye level with the subject.  I´m happy to combine images from multiple photos, to create one piece of artwork, or even if you want something a little quirky.  Please be advised that this will affect the quotation.

If the photos you have are of a loved one that is sadly no long with you, I will be happy to work with what you have, to create a lasting reminder.

As the commission progresses,  I will email you with photos of the artwork at different stages.  This will give you a chance to make comments along the way.
