My background is in advertising and part of my job as a creative was to decifer the client brief to get to the nitty gritty of what they wanted. I approach my commissions in pretty much the same way. To get a feel for my customer and gain a total understanding of the desired results, I'll ask plenty of questions. This 'getting to know you' process can take place between emails or on a one to one basis. I'll often produce layouts and rough visuals with some colour samples. I love a challenge!

Here are a few of the typical scenarios when only a commission will do.

The artwork you like has sold!

You have seen the 'one' and love it, only to find that when you try to add to your cart, you realise that it has sold! Do not worry, I am always happy to paint you something similar. Even better, I can paint it to the size you want. Just drop me an email and I can give you some prices and timescales. Commissions typically take 2- 4 weeks. Ask me about a 'sold' painting.

You need a different size or format

You spot one of my canvas paintings on my site that would be perfect for your space. However, it's the wrong size and format for your wall.

There's a great triptych set that you have seen on my abstract art page. Right colours, right style, but you would prefer a single painting and feel that a one piece canvas would suit your space.

I can quite often adapt a painting to fit your scale. Simply, measure your wall and email me with your request. I can provide some size options and quotes and further information on the commission process. Ask me about canvas sizes

You need a different colour

You have seen an artwork that you love the style of, but it isn't quite right to fit into your decor/colour scheme. 

Send me your colour requirements I can always make some suggestions on how I can integrate your colour scheme. I am very happy to work to colour samples too. I am often asked by my clients to create artwork based on different colours. In this scenario, I will always offer a completely honest opinion. If I think that the colours/format would not work with the chosen style, I'll always try and make some alternative suggestions.  Get in touch with your ideas

Send me a picture of your room

If you would like me to see your wall space/room, feel free to email me your images and rough measurements and I would be delighted to make some suggestions and even show you how something could look in your room.
