COMMISSIONS

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)
  • Pose
  • 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.
Wildlife Totems:

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.

I have provided a price list for animal portraits as a beginning, but please do not hesitate to email me should you have another idea in mind!
