If you see anything you like, but it’s too small, too big or you’d like it in another colour, why not have a commission made. I create art work suitable for large offices, pubs, restaurants, conference rooms, libraries, galleries, museums, waiting rooms - anywhere with a blank wall. I also use a variety of media including oil on canvas, chalk and charcoal, water colour crayons and pencil on paper. I can produce work to any size you wish and together we can create your perfect custom made painting.

Pet Portrait Commissions


If you are interested in pet portrait commissions, please view the guide below for tips on the photographic requirements for producing the perfect pet portrait.


Quality of photographs for pet portraits and family portraits


I work best with close ups of faces and so it is important the detail in the eyes is very clear.

Please ensure that the photographs supplied be in the highest quality possible. Take as many photos as you wish. With a large choice to browse through, we can arrange the most successful composition.  




When ordering your portrait I require a 20% deposit before work can begin. The remaining balance will be due before the art work is delivered. If you are unhappy for any reason with the commission, you will be refunded (less the deposit and delivery) once the art work is returned to myself in satisfactory condition.



Please specify when ordering your portrait if there is any particular timescale for completion. i.e - birthdays/Christmas etc ... I will advise accordingly whether or not completion is possible. Please order well in advance of four months for any specific deadlines.




Depending on size and weight of the portrait, delivery in the UK ranges from £5 to £30 and will be specially packed and protected.




My commissions do not include frames. This is so you can choose your own personally from your local framer. If you do specify the pet portrait be framed by me there will be an additional charge of £10 - £100 depending on size and choice.




I offer 10% discount to returning customers. Please mention when ordering your portrait if you are a returning customer.
