How to book your commission
Firstly, it's time to have a dig through your photo albums and find some photographs of the subject. I work directly from photos so it's important to get this step right. For general wildlife commissions, I am able to source reference photos but it is helpful if you can provide any examples of the kind of images you are drawn to. For pet portraits, the reference photos you provide will be the deciding factor on whether I can take your commission on and they must be high quality. For more information about what photos I need click here.
Once you've decided on a size and found some photos, then it's time to send in a commission enquiry via the form linked below. We'll then have a chat via email to discuss your requirements.
I work on a first come, first serve basis with commissions. To secure your place in my books, I require a 50% non-refundable deposit which is payable via card or PayPal. Once I have received the full deposit, your space on my list is reserved. Payment plans are available and discussed on an individual basis with my clients.
What happens next?
I work through my commission books at my own pace, but will get in touch when your commission slot rolls around, to agree a design with you; I'll also send you updates as necessary throughout the process.
Upon completion, you'll receive a final photo of the painting to approve. At this point the remaining 50% of the commission is due. Once paid, I will post your painting out, usually in a tube to protect your artwork as best I can. All paintings are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, and posted out unframed and unmounted to give you the freedom to choose your own.
UK postage is included within the cost of your commission but international postage typically works out at an additional £25-£40. All commissioned works are send via a tracked service so you can keep an eye on your painting while it makes it's way to you.
