COMMISSIONS

I really enjoy taking commissions as it allows me to create something truly unique and personalised. Currently I have a waiting list.  Please allow 6 to 8 weeks for a commission however it is worth contacting me if you would like something sooner.

A commission may be a Mandala, Dreamcatcher or a Buddha painting.  If you seek inspiration take a look at my Gallery or view my Pinterest.  The face of Buddha paintings are typically inspired by a photograph.  The Mandalas and Dreamcatchers are created intuitively, often through the use of a word or words, verse and/or colour(s).   

The process

I like to arrange a time to speak, in person, by Skype or phone, so that we can connect and I can get a good understanding of who you are (if the picture is for you) or the recipient (if the picture is a gift). During this conversation I will ask whether you have any intentions, colours and/or words to inspire or be included in the painting. We will agree the medium (watercolours or acrylics), size and cost. 

During the creation of your painting I will take photos to share with you in order to keep you up to date and to provide an opportunity for you to feedback. I also like to check any intuitive ideas I have with you so that you may verify what I am experiencing. On completion I will email you an album of the work in progress photos as a record of the story of your painting. With your permission I will also share work in progress and final piece photos on FacebookInstagram and Pinterest. All your details will be kept confidential. 

PRICE & SHIPPING

The cost is determined by the size and complexity of the painting. I ask for a non-refundable deposit of fifty percent in advance and the outstanding amount plus packing and shipping costs on completion. 

Together we will agree arrangements for collection or shipping. I have previously sent paintings to the US, Europe and within the UK. The costs of postage and packing are in addition to the cost of the commission.
