Commissions of houses, architecture and views of towns and country......
I make lots of commissions inspired by homes and houses, buildings and townscapes as well as a few of fields and the countryside. I really love making these as these places are deeply meaningful to the people that commission me. I love buildings & architecture as buildings satisfy our heads and hearts through how we use them and build our lives and memories in them. I have made commissions of small houses up to much larger public buildings.
Simple email me or use the contact form to discuss the commission you would like me to make. Prices range from £200 - £800 so just let me know your budget and we can discuss from there as much depends on the complexity of the piece commissioned.

What happens next - the commission process:
Simply contact me via email or telephone to initially talk about your ideas for the commission. This stage is really important as we get to pin down things like size, price, framed or unframed, specific details to be included as well as the deadline. I may need you to provide a range of photographs of a venue, or I might be able to visit the venue if it is near to me. Please allow 8 weeks before the wedding to start this process as I often have a waiting list for commissions. 30% of the commission price is due at this stage as a deposit via cheque/BACS or Paypal.
I then prepare three sketches of the proposed composition of the commission which I then email to you for you to choose one design. If there are things that need adjusting or tweaking, then this is the stage to really it right as its from these sketches I will develop the commission collage.
The cutting and making begins! I can send you progress pictures if you would like, though people often wait for the excitement of the big reveal. Whatever you would like, I am happy to do. When the piece is completed, I send the commission via Royal Mail Guaranteed (it will need a signature) to your selected address and the final remainder payment (70%) will then be due. This can be paid as before by cheque/BACS or Paypal. The commission is usually unframed (additional charge and delivery applied to framed works) and supplied in a window mount using an off white archival mount card, ready to slip into a frame.
Commissions usually measure 40 x 50 cm mounted size or 60 x 80 cm mounted size.
