I accept commissions with a great big smile!

A commissioned work starts with a consultation between artist and buyer. Price is based on size, complexity and time needed for completion. In most cases, it's preferable to work from the artist's own photos and sketches. However, you are welcome to provide the photos yourself as long as they contain plenty of clearly defined detail. When both parties have agreed on what is required and how it will be completed, a deposit will secure your place on the waiting list.

To start the process, please leave a message on this site on the 'Contact The Artist' page, OR on my FB Page, OR by clicking 'Request Custom Order' at my Etsy Shop (see below).

2014 - Titchfield Arts and Crafts Show - review

Fox by Moonlight
I set out to collect my remaining paintings knowing that one had been sold and found out when I arrived that I had sold another!

Oh joy! And then they told me that Surveillance: Arctic Wolf had been 'Commended' by the judge - so, in a roundabout way, it was three out of three!

I say goodbye now to the coloured version of Fox by Moonlight, and to the pastel painting of a tawny owl, Vigilance. I miss them already, but hope they are much loved in their new homes.

I am so glad I took part in this, having only heard of it from the White Dog Gallery in Lee on Solent - it was fantastically well organised, the organisers themselves couldn't have been more friendly & helpful and the show itself was a delight to attend. The range and quality of work, and the sense of community spirit were all equally inspiring.

Yes, I really must take part again next year & if you, dear reader, are a local artist and you haven't yet submitted to this show, then I insist you do, too!
