"How do I commission an original work of art?"

"By commissioning an original piece of art, direct from me, the artist, you will become part of an exciting process that carries on a centuries old tradition of purchasing artwork that is created specially for you; plus you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you have supported an individual working in the creative arts.

In the first instance, if you like my style of work you are very welcome to contact me either via the contact form on this website or by phoning so we can informally discuss how the process works, what can be achieved and a ballpark cost with an initial no-obligation conversation. Then if you would like to proceed, an accurate price will be quoted and once agreed, preliminary sketches will be produced. Once you are happy with the composition in the chosen sketch, the process will proceed to the final artwork stage.

How much does an original piece of art cost? In short, it all depends upon the size, content, time involved, style of frame and delivery which results in prices ranging from £100 to £2500 on average. 

So whether you are looking for a pet portrait or sporting topic for that special family occasion or a commercial client looking for some art for a presentation ceremony or to decorate your office or headquarters interior, I look forward to hearing from you."

"The examples below show two colour sketches (pen and watercolour wash) that were produced for a client prior to creating the final painting; that was sold unframed as the client wanted to use their own frame-maker and select a frame style that suited both the picture and their home interior. But if you would like me to frame the painting for you, I will be happy to discuss further details."
