About The Artwork Commissioning Service

As an artist, it is my goal in every commission to create something personal and unique to you. I take great pride in my work and strive to make every piece as great as it can be.

I welcome any and all commissions - human portraits (individuals, families), pet portraits (cats, dogs, horses, birds, etc.), paintings from your photos, paintings from my photos - a completely personal and bespoke service.

I am very happy to talk through individual requirements on the phone or through email and I like to keep all of my clients informed throughout the service, from start to finish.

What Makes My Artwork Service Unique?

What Makes My Service Unique?
Unlike many other portrait artists who work only in pastels or chalks, I offer an acrylic paint on canvas service. Whilst this means my portraits (or other commissions) may take longer, I provide a far superior, more luxurious finish, much richer in detail, colour, texture and overall quality.

Not only that, but painting in acrylic also results in a more unique and interesting style, sure to stand out from the crowd and have a strong visual impact. Superficially, acrylics resemble oils, but are quicker drying.

I also offer an extremely competitive pricing structure, particularly compared to the standard pastel or chalk service of other artists.

Frequently Asked Questions

DO YOU WORK LIVE OR FROM PHOTOS?
I usually work from photos of the subject, so before I can start work on a piece it's incredibly useful to have at least one good quality photograph to work from, the larger or higher the resolution, the better. If you can provide an image it should be one you are happy to have committed to canvas.

This can be emailed to me in its digital form or sent to me in the post.

WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE A SUITABLE IMAGE?
If you live within a 15 mile radius of Solihull, I offer a friendly call out service, where for a small fee, I can come to your home and photograph your pet in their day to day environment and discuss the portrait's requirements.

WHAT IF I WANT MULTIPLE SUBJECTS IN ONE PIECE OF ARTWORK?
No problem, the more the merrier! If the piece is to feature multiple subjects, human or animal, it is better if the photograph you supply has them all in, but if this isn't possible, do not worry! - I can assemble and composite multiple photos into one piece before seeking your approval on the layout and commencing the artwork.

WHAT ABOUT BACKGROUNDS?
Any background you need, I can provide, that's no problem. As standard, the background will be a complimentary block of colours and shading that will present the subject in the best light.
For a more detailed or specific background, please be sure to mention this requirement! An additional cost will be quoted for if necessary (see price list).

THEN WHAT?
Once size, medium, composition (head only or full body, etc.), number of subjects, background and any other requirements have been decided, quoted for and agreed upon, I'm ready to start your unique piece of artwork. I'm sure you will be delighted with the final results!

DO YOU NEED A DEPOSIT?
Yes please. I require a deposit of 30% before I start work on the final piece (non refundable).
The balance is then payable on completion and once your final approval has been given, before the finished product is delivered.

HOW CAN I PAY?
Payments for commissions can be made however is most convenient for you. Many people prefer to pay via PayPal - "the safer, easier way to pay online" as it offers peace of mind, protecting both the customer and the seller. You don't need to be a member or sign up to use it. Or, you might wish to pay by cheque or postal order. Customers local to Solihull, Warwickshire or Birmingham may even wish to pay in cash on delivery of their newly commissioned artwork. Full details will be given once a quote is agreed.

WHAT ABOUT DELIVERY?
All finished pieces are securely packaged and sent via recorded delivery. I will keep you informed throughout so you know which day to expect the delivery. Customers local to Solihull, Warwickshire or Birmingham may even wish to pick their pieces up directly, or for a small fee I can deliver them in person.

GUARANTEE
I have never had an unsatisfied customer and I intend to maintain this exemplary record. I am certain you will be delighted with your finished piece of artwork! However, if you're not happy with the final product, you are not obligated in any way beyond the original deposit. The piece will remain my property.
