West Across the Lake - Commission a Painting

Commission a Painting

If you can’t find exactly what you are looking for on my website. Why not commission a painting?

It is wonderful to fill your home with beautiful things that mean something special to you. Maybe there is a particular view, species of bird or animal or flower that you love or perhaps you would like to create a very personal gift for a loved one. Perhaps you saw something on your holiday that you would like to remember every time you walk around your house. I would love to create something special for you! Even if you don’t really have a clear idea of what you would like, tell me about yourself and what you love and I can come up with some creative ideas for you.

For any project large or small, I can work from photographs and even tailor the painting to fit in with your colour scheme.

I have found that customers prefer to choose their own frames and there is a high risk of damage in posting glazed framed work. So I normally supply paintings mounted ready for the customer to select and buy their own frame. I mainly work to standard frame sizes which are cheaper and readily available but happy to discuss bespoke size options and what will suit the image best.

Prices depend on size, here are some examples:

Painting Size Mount Size * (size of frame required) Price (Excluding P&P)
30 x 30 cm 40 x 40 cm £200
30 x 40 cm 40 x 50 cm £200
40 x 40 cm 50 x 50 cm £350
30 x 50 cm 50 x 70 cm £450
40 x 60 cm 60 x 80 cm £550
50 x 80 cm 70 x 100 cm £750

Here are some examples of previous commissions I have undertaken:


The clients had recently purchased a lovely old manor house in Kent with beautiful grounds. The brief was to visit the estate and take inspiration from the landscape. The clients also particularly wanted to capture a magnificent 350 year old sweet chestnut tree in their front garden that is (sadly) dying. I created a series of four large paintings. One tells the story of the tree and it’s dramatic presence in the garden. The others (two of which are designed to hang as a pair) are, I hope a reflection of the incredible peace and beauty that I found in their grounds.

Going Bananas – Banaquits and Bananas

This commission was a special birthday gift from a mother to her daughter who was crazy about everything tropical. In fact one might say bananas….

The Dive

Here the client (a talented photographer) wanted to commission a painting which reminded him of his recent trip to the Galapagos Islands. I worked from the clients own photograph to create a painting which I hope captures the speed and majesty of the blue-footed boobies that he saw on the trip.

The Symphony of the Bells
