Artwork

All artworks are original oil paintings created with artist grade canvas board and paint.  A coat of professional grade art varnish is applied to optimise the colour pigment, accentuate brush strokes and ensure paintings will last a lifetime.  ​All artworks are signed on the front and sold in a complimentary frame.  Please visit this website regularly to see new paintings as they become added. 


Commissioning

I am available to undertake commissioned artworks and all you need to do is supply a photograph.  Here are two recently commissioned portraits:




























It is also possible to create paintings based on photographs, but with different aspects added, taken away or changed.  For example, a customer who commissioned a portrait of her daughter's wedding wanted a black and white painting with a red accent, with the bouquet painted a tomato red, rather than the more pink-based red in the photograph.  The customer also wanted the bride's arm moved to bring up the bouquet, so the portrait was produced based upon two photographs, as follows:















The pricing for a commissioned artwork is based on a number of factors:


  • The number of subjects in the painting

  • The size of the painting

  • The intricacy of clothing and other details

  • The complexity of the background

  • Any special requests, such as omitting, adding or changing elements (as above)
