Between major projects I am able to accept commissions.
In my still life works, I often use objects that have special meaning to me. For still life commissions, I am particularly interested in creating pieces that feature objects that have special meaning to you. This can be in the style of one of my existing works, in an arrangement that we develop together, or something completely new.
For figurative or portrait commissions, I am happy to work with you on an exciting concept and composition that is more than just a smiling snapshot, and can develop mock-up images or sketches before work begins on the final piece.
I treat my commissions like collaborative art works, and am excited to work with clients to create a unique piece that we can both be proud of. So, if you like my work and would like something personalised just for you, please get in touch and we can discuss price and timeframes.
Please note: I am not available to create portraits that are simply copied from photographs, but I can put you in touch with talented artists that may be able to assist if that is what you’re after.
