Commissioning contemporary artwork is a personal experience. An original canvas is an individual statement about lifestyle and taste.
How do I acquire something unique and personal to me?
- By providing ideas or a photo which you find inspirational or which evokes special memories for you. These are often the start point for your commissioned painting.
- By having a conversation, describing what the art is going to be for.
- Talking about the colours you like/hate.
- Describing the site for your artwork, the things that might influence your requirements – the scale of your room, the architectural style of your building.
- By talking to me.
I have worked with both personal and corporate clients and can assist you in putting together a brief which helps define the size, colours and subject matter of your artwork.
The costs for commissioned artwork depend mainly on the dimensions of the canvas. I use either three dimensional canvases, 1.3 inches (3.5cms) deep, making framing unnecessary, or work on quality canvas board. As a guide a 16″ x 12″ painting would cost £240, plus postage and packing.
