Interested in commissioning a work, being involved in creating a special gift or getting just the right artwork to be a focal point for your room?

I have worked on a wide range of corporate and individual commissions from large scale wall murals and canvases to more intimate pet portraits. I’ve painted landscapes from a six-figure grid reference and compass bearing showing the exact view desired. And I’ve brought trout back to life to rise for a favourite fly, painted scenes from a local village on a giant squirrel and turned one of my paintings into a tile mural. Below is a small selection of past commissions (including a video), and some paintings from previous exhibitions.

How to commission a painting

One question people always ask is “what happens when I commission a painting?”

When you decide you want an original painting, there are a few things I need to know before I can provide a quote for the artwork.

  • size of painting;
  • style of painting;
  • content.

Describing your desired type of painting or sending images is really helpful in gauging the scale and cost of the project.

Prices for paintings on my shop can be used as a guide but if you are looking for something bespoke, e.g. a painting of you and your family on the beach at Loch Morlich, then that would cost a bit more.

I always include a simple frame as part of the quoted price. If you decide you want a different frame, that would cost extra.

I don’t usually ask for a deposit unless the painting is so specific that I’d be unable to sell it to anyone else.

I paint until you’re happy – I will keep in touch and send images of progress. You would receive an invoice on delivery of the finished painting.

Delivery is a separate charge. If you can’t collect from the studio, I will package it up and send it to you. Postage and packing can cost up to £90 depending on the size of the picture.

Feel free to contact me to discuss your new painting or project.

Or you can visit my shop to see paintings that are for sale.
