I offer custom illustration pieces in both watercolour and digital. Commissions make the perfect personalised gift for any occasion. Whether you want to recapture a favourite photo, dream up a pose or leave it up to the artist to decide, there are no limits to what you could order!
CHOOSE YOUR Medium...
These watercolour paintings are lined with copic multiliners and painted with an array of professional watercolour paints. They are a timeless and magical gift.
Take your watercolour painting to the next level by having individual elements of the piece cut out and placed onto a background in a 'pop-out' style. These 3D paintings are truly mesmerising in person.
Drawn with a tablet and the coveted Paint Tool Sai program, digital pieces offer a whole new style. You can choose to receive the hi-res digital file for personal printing or to have this printed and posted to you on high quality matte finish paper.
CHOOSE YOUR SIZE...
Choose from A4 or A5 sizes.
Choose from any photo size below 8x12 (includes portrait, landscape and square sizes)
PHOTO SIZES PLUS BORDERS
If you have a frame in mind with a border inside, you can request your commission to fit this frame. For example, you could select an 8x10 frame with a 5x7 cutout.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
To begin the process of creating a beautiful commission for you, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org or click on the 'contact' tab above. In the email, please specify exactly what you are expecting from your commission, including the size, the subjects, the background, and any other special requests such as embellishments. Please also include your address if you are having your commission sent to you in the mail. Then, simply attach the reference photos you'd like to include in your email. If you have given enough information, I will reply with a sketch of your piece and a quote. The price of your commission will be within the ranges specified above and will change depending on the size and complexity of your piece. If I am unsure on any element of your commission I will ask some questions before a sketch is completed.
You can suggest any changes you'd like to make to your sketch. Once you have approved of your sketch, I will begin the final piece. Please note that once you have approved of the sketch, you agree to the final design and price.
Once your commission is complete, I will post it to your address or send you the digital copy via email. I do not show you the final piece until it has arrived in your home, so if you would like to see sneak peaks of your commission on social media, please let me know in your first email. The final step is to find a new home for your beautiful commission!
