Commissioning a painting

I am often asked whether I do commissions, and the answer is “yes!”. I love the challenge of a new and unusual subject, whether a portrait, pet or a landscape.

The process can be a little intimidating, so here are a few frequently-asked questions:

Can I give you one of my images?

I am happy to work from your image,

Can you work on small and large pieces?

I work across a wide range of sizes (9”x 12” to 48”x 72”)

How does pricing work?

Commissioned paintings are priced by size

Do you require a deposit?

I typically require a 25% non-refundable deposit before starting the painting.

How long does it take?

Please allow 4-6 weeks from start to finish

■ Can I see the painting before final payment?

Yes; I will send you an image of the completed painting, and you are welcome to view it at my studio.

■ What if I don’t like it?

If you are not satisfied, no additional payment beyond the deposit is required

■ How about delivery & installation?

I am happy to deliver and install the completed painting.

■ Do I have to get it framed?

The painting will be ready to hang, and does not require additional framing, but you are welcome to have it framed by a third-party, according to taste.
