Here are some useful FAQs that help to establish need and expectations.

It is important for me to understand why you want me to make the artwork.

My timeline is generally dependent upon the number of current works in progress and commissions awaiting completion.

Ideas/styling/location/person – they always help to ‘set the mood and tone’ of a piece.

A photograph of the space is useful if known, and helps me to work with the specifics of aesthetics.

A commissioned piece is a contract. Payment is usually in 2 parts, 50% deposit to confirm the agreement and 50% on delivery.

See the homepage on my website for details on where my work is currently being sold or exhibited.

Specialist framing usually takes between 3-6 weeks and needs to be costed prior to contract. Of course, you can change your mind, but please bear in mind that it is better to consider this as part of the initial commissioning process.

If you are not sure, ask! I am very happy to help.
