Portrait Commissions of People or Animals

For commissioned items, I work from detailed photographs with a high resolution. This allows me to produce quality art work in oil on canvas of your chosen person, pet or subject.

If you are unsure of the quality of your photographs, please forward them and I will advise you. If you are local, I am able to arrange to take photographs myself.

Upon receiving your photograph(s) and specific requests, I can advise on the potential size, cost and time scale for your unique piece of artwork. Once agreed, I will require a 50% non refundable deposit. The remainder will be due upon completion and you receiving an image of the final work. A small fee for postage and packaging will be necessary if you are not local. The final piece will include a Certificate of Authenticity.


Advice on Photographs


  • Please consider using a camera which can give as much detail as possible
  • Take a number of images in natural light outside in a variety of poses
  • Don't use the flash
  • Take the photos at eye level
  • Don't crop or alter them
  • Forward the photos to the below email address
