COMMISSIONS
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).

This is the first time I have taken part in this, and I'm really looking forward to it! This is a juried exhibition, so when I decided to enter, there was no guarantee that anything would be selected. I will be demonstrating my colouring pencil technique at the Menier Gallery in Southwark St, London on Saturday 9 May, so please pop in if you're in the area - the gallery is just behind the Tate Modern. I think I'll be working on a lynx - but it may be a fox - but I may have changed my mind again by then!
