Commission Details and Example Ideas
I am happy to undertake any kind of commission and work closely with my client to make sure their ideas are brought alive on paper.
I only usually open 12 commission slots per year, so book early to avoid disappointment, particularly if you require the piece for a special date or around seasonal celebrations.
Some popular ideas…..
Popular commission ideas are to incorporate a portrait of your loved one/s in a fantasy, fairytale setting of your choice,or to transform your child into a “little mermaid” or character such as “Alice in Wonderland” to give you an idea of what can be asked for. My different takes on The Owl and the Pussycat have been popular for Wedding and Aniversary Gifts. People often ask that I weave a special message into the artwork. Looking through my gallery will give you an idea of my range and I can do something “similiar” to previous pieces (although never the same) or something from scratch based on your own ideas. My inkwork also lends itself well to tattoo designs and commissioning an original tattoo is also popular.
My preferred medium is ink in Black or White or Colour- I also do more traditional portraits and pets in Graphite/ Coloured Pencil on request.
You can view my Portfolio of Work here at my Redbubble Gallery (where I offer cards, prints, calendars and T-shirt designs from the fantastic range of quality Redbubble Products). I hope my art inspires some ideas of your own and look forward to bringing those to life for you.

How to Go About Commissioning an Original ArtWork
You can email me direct at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the bubble mail option to message me (at the top of my redbubble gallery page) and I’ll be happy to discuss your requirements or answer any queries.
If you go ahead with a commission I require the fee in advance (this holds your commission slot & the time will not be booked for anyone else)- This is non refundable, so please think carefully before committing to the work. The postage & packing is added when your commission is complete, once paid I will send the work to you. You receive scans of the pencil sketches so we can discuss them & make any chages before committing the piece to ink.
With all complete commissions- I post them on my Redbubble Site (not for sale) so you can view them before I send them to you.
I require the payments to be made by PAYPAL but do let me know if you prefer to pay by other methods and I will see if they can be accomodated.
All commissions come signed and dated (very discreetly- have a look at my folio and you will see that my signature is incorportated into the piece). I use archival quality ink pens on quality cartridge or watercolour papers.
We can discuss whether you want the piece sent as is or presented in a matt (colour of your choice) or framed (by a proffesional framer to gallery standard).
The price guide below is for the artwork only and does not include any framing/extras or postage/packing. These additions will depend on what you want and will vary on your location.
