I’m often asked when I show my artwork, “Where can I commission an artist?”. The answer is here lol. As well as creating artwork for charity events, athletes and nature, you can commission me as your artist to create a unique piece for your home or as a gift.
I was recently commissioned to create a highly detailed piece of a clients two dogs. In total this piece took over 200 hours to complete.
Complete with tufty pieces of fur, facial expressions, puppy dog eyes and even the odd bit of dirt. Each hair has been individually drawn and shaded to make a true to life portrait of each dog.
Evie is a terrier cross and has multiple shades across her coat. WIth her tufty beard and her harness being slightly lost in her thick black fur, you can certainly tell its her.
Darcy is a Bichon Frise with a brilliant white coat. However her crafty nature and love for country walks mean she is rarely brilliant white, as captured in this portrait.
How does commissioning an artist work?
The first step is to reach out to me and let me know what type of artwork you are looking for. Please note though that all my artwork is created in fine pencil. We can then discuss both price and timescale. Once we have agreed on a price and timescale, I will ask you to send me some high resolution photos that I can work from. Depending on the type of artwork I am creating, I may require some additional close up photos for added detail.
