Commissioning FAQ

“Art is unquestionably one of the purest and highest elements in human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye, and the eye through the mind. As the sun colours flowers, so does art colour life.” John Lubbock

Commissioning Overview

Please review our Terms and Conditions page prior to commissioning work.

Commissioning an artwork by me, whether its a photograph or a sculpture, is an exciting collaboration between us. You tell me your vision for what you would like and I interpret that using my unique skills and style. It could be something tiny and delicate or a huge installation piece. If it’s figurative piece then you can be the subject of the portrait yourself or we also provide a model search service to get the right person to fit the concept.

It is an intimate and engaging process whereby you get the artwork you want, at the size you want, created specially for the location you have in mind. Whether it’s just a vague idea or a fully realised plan we can work together to achieve it. You are welcome to be fully involved, from start to finish or just get me to create it, deliver it and then install it if needed. If appropriate to the job I can visit you at your home, wherever that may be, to discuss the work in relation to the space you have in mind for it and to take the necessary measurements etc. I can work at my studio or at your place, if suitable, or a combination of the two. I ship artworks all over the world, using an excellent art packer and shipper who I have worked with for many years. Whatever your budget, I’ll be able to guide you through the options and come up with a solution which will be perfect for you. I very much look forward to hearing your ideas, however conservative or whacky. Email or phone me now for a no commitment chat and lets see what we can create together… 🙂

Commissioning a Photograph

These portrait photographs can be anything from fully clothed to fully nude and either single or multiple figures. They can be printed in a huge range of sizes from larger than life size to smaller than a postcard. The photographs themselves are created using a C-type archival print process. We can discuss framing options or deliver to you unframed, signed on the front or the reverse.

We can discuss the pose and how you’d like to style the images with clothes and props or just nude and with a background or plain black. These decisions are all part of the collaborative process of commissioning The photograph itself can be made at my studio, at your home or at any suitable location. The process can take anything from an hour or so to several hours depending on the size and complexity of the image. If you have any questions about the process or want to just run an idea past me to get an idea of its feasibility and some guide prices then please email or phone me for a chat.

Commissioning a Sculpture

I work in many different sculpture disciplines in a wide range of materials from bronze and marble to steel and glass to fibreglass and plaster to found objects etc. or a combination of all of them! Sculptures may be free standing or wall hanging and can be designed for indoor or outdoor display. They can be figurative or abstract or somewhere in between.

So if you have seen something in my portfolio that has inspired you and you’d like something similar that’s great. If you have an idea of your own and you’re looking for an artist to fulfil that vision then lets have a chat. I can talk you through the benefits of the different materials and their suitability for different settings. For figurative work, if it’s a sculpture of you or of a model, it can be made at my studio, at your home or at any suitable location. The initial moulding process can take anything from an hour or so to several hours depending on the size and complexity of the piece. I generally work life size but am happy to discuss the options for larger or smaller scale works. If you have an idea you’d like to run by me please email or call me for a no obligation chat.
