Whether you are after a piece for a particular sized wall, something more personal that tells your very own story, an ode to your beloved pet or a gift for a special someone, I’d love to work with you to create a personal piece of art just for you.

The process of collaboration, getting to know my clients and their unique stories, passions and aspirations to then bring them to life on canvas is something I truly enjoy.

When you commission a custom piece of art I work with you selecting the size to fit your space, the colours of your liking, composition and subject matter. Together we will go through every aspect of the process and I can guide you as little or as much as needed. Every brush stroke is unique and so are all of my paintings, however, if you have taken a liking to one of my past paintings, I can create a piece in a kindred style just for you.

1. Choose a photo

The first step is to find or take a good quality photo of your subject matter e.g. pet, flower that captures his/her personality, feel and characteristics. As I unfortunately don't get to see all the subject matters or meet your pet in real life, it is important that the photo is sharp and in focus for best results. I generally work from one main photo, however, I may use others as a point of reference, so please feel free to send as many as you like.

2. Painting Process

During our initial discussions, I will ask about your desired painting's size, colour scheme, composition and any further ideas you may have. Once the details are finalised, I will advise an estimate due date when I will be able start and finish the piece. I will first create a draft of your painting and send you a photo of the draft for feedback. After that I will start the painting and send you an image of the finished piece once I have completed it.

Please note paintings may take up to 3 weeks to fully dry before I can safely send it. ​
