STARTING YOUR BESPOKE ART PROJECT
Commissioning professional bespoke art can often be a daunting experience. But it needn’t be. I’ll do my best to make sure the commission is an immersive, fun and creative experience that we’ll both enjoy.
I’ve helped many clients make their dream art work a reality, with a great track record of creating custom projects and consistently receiving excellent customer feedback, which I take great pride in.
So if you’ve ever pondered how commissioning art or portraits works, I’ll give you the low-down on how to get the bespoke, highly personal artwork that you’re after.
Here’s how we will work together, to make your art dreams come true
Step 1: No obligation consultation
I’m always happy to discuss ideas and offer advice. People usually want to talk style, colours, dimensions and subject. I tend to work from clear well-defined photos so am happy to chat about images you may already have or look at taking new ones.
If you’re worried about what it might cost, let’s have a chat. A) it might not be as much as you think and B) it can often be comforting to know that you are purchasing something truly unique.
When you look at it like that, it really is a bargain. I aim to provide a a quality and professional service and prices for bespoke work start from £674. The very nature of a bespoke commission means there are numerous variables that can be factored in, so I would always recommend having a conversation about the possibilities of a project. You can also find more information about costs on the prices page.
Step 2: Making a deposit
Once we’ve agreed the size, dimensions and colour scheme, I’ll ask you to pay a deposit of 25% of the final total. I use Paypal, so I can securely accept all major credit and debit cards. I also accept bank transfers. Deposits are non-refundable and I'm proud to say that no-one has ever asked for one.
Step 3: The Spirit of Collaboration
This is where we get creative together. We will finalise the brief, making sure I know everything I need to in order to make your perfect painting. The ethos of our collaboration is to get your ideas into my distinctive style, which can range from quite surrealist to highly realistic.
I’ll show you drafts along the way, if there is any aspect of the painting you don’t love, we can talk about how to change it for the better.
Step 4: Job’s a good un
I’ll send a photograph of the work.
Because we’ve talked about it a few times along the way, you’ll have taken part in the direction it’s headed, there’ll be no shocks or nasty surprises.
Step 5: Shipping a beautiful thing
The final painting will be shipped as it deserves to be: packaged with love and care, to arrive in immaculate condition, ready to add an extra dimension of beauty to your home or make your office more homely.
Deliveries will be scheduled on a day that suits you.
Step 6: Big smiles all round
I’m really proud of my track record with commissions and happy customers, so I'd encourage you to give me feedback.
I’m as proud of my commissions as I am any of my art projects - I love to hear how well I’ve capture the essence of a beloved pet who will always remain in the family’s memory or captured the likeness of a much loved home.
