Welcome to my commissions’ page, please enjoy viewing my artworks.
Over the years I have received numerous requests for commissions, some have been out of the ordinary… But I love a challenge!
Pet and Equine Commissions:
Portraits are lovingly and meticulously drawn and rendered from your carefully selected photographs to reveal your loved pet’s unique personality.
Please head to my contact page for any commissioning enquiries; I encourage you to attach a few images as a suitability starting point. There is no obligation- all enquiries are welcomed.
When considering reference images, try to envision how they might look from a portrait point of view?
An exceptional portrait requires photo reference material that poses your pet with good:
- Clarity (photo is not blurry or too small)
- Light (a photo of dark coloured animals look better taken in natural sunlight so that shadows and highlights can be seen)
- Depth of field (subject looks alive and 3 dimensional not flat)I take commissions from anywhere in the world and always ensure that your drawing will make it safely to your front door. I will send you photos throughout the process of your artwork, so that you are able to gradually see your beloved portrait come to life.
My other passion is painting wildlife. I consider myself strongly connected to nature and its energy. I create and illustrate Animal Totem Shields that resinate the special animal that you feel connected to in life and spirit. Each totemic shield is designed especially as a one off. Acrylic is painted on natural leather, hand stretched with leather lacing onto a round or rectangle frame, completed with real feathers or other glass/bead trinkets as you like.
I design individual tattoo motifs which capture not only the totem animal/s but also contain the human connection by merging powerful symbols that empower and balance you.
