I welcome commissions, even if you live further afield, so do feel free to contact me.
Ideally I like to visit your home/garden and meet you in person, especially as many homes have a story to tell. This also gives me an opportunity to photograph your home or garden. However, if you do live further afield, there is nothing to prevent me working from photographs which you have taken.
My rates are negotiable depending on the size of the drawing/painting (A3 or larger) and whether you prefer a black and white drawing or a watercolour painting. Prices typically start at £250 per article.
If you'd like to commission me, I ask for a 30% deposit before I start work. The balance is due on completion and delivery of the portrait/s.
I work on artist quality paper, typically either 300gsm or 425gsm. The inks and watercolours I use are also artist quality.
ORIGINAL GREETINGS CARDS
Have you considered giving a greeting card which is an original artwork and can later be framed?
Typically these are garden scenes, like the examples below, left blank inside for your message and supplied with an envelope. Painted on 300gsm artist quality paper and sized to slip easily into a ready-made 10" x 8" picture frame (not supplied).
£45 per card
