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).
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 Facebook, Instagram 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.
