I have been delighted to accept lots of commissions recently. What I really love is being entrusted with your special place or your favourite view and trying to capture the very feel of the place for you. It is quite a different experience to painting something for yourself and demands a different sort of sensitivity.
I would be really happy to discuss any commission with you and love to paint from your photographs – outside painting poses certain obstacles in winter of course!
I usually use 80 x 100 cms canvasses but can paint to the size you would like.
Do get in touch if you’re interested. I will be taking a break over April and May so do contact me sooner rather than later.
Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you
