One advantage of buying direct from the artist is that the price is much lower than would be necessary via an agent or gallery.
I place great value on the artist-collector relationship. My priority is for you to be delighted with your commission, so as well as doing a work of art that surpasses your expectations, and involving you personally in that process, I price my work fairly. It is absolutely possible to find cheaper commissionable artists should you wish.
All work is on artist quality, acid free paper or canvas, a completely handmade unique original, made using traditional methods, signed and dated by me.
The cost depends mostly on the time taken - this is a reflection of the size, number of subjects, and method used.
Because I offer so many variations of these, it is not practical to maintain a price list here. However if you go to the order page, you can choose from the drop-down boxes, and the price will be shown in the text immediately above the boxes (no need to ‘add to cart’).
My standard frame is solid FSC certified wood, painted a discreet slightly distressed grey to compliment the drawing. White mount card perfectly offsets the frame, and protects the work from contact with the glass. This is professionally cut, and acid-free to prevent yellowing core. I can quote separately for a variety of other frames on request.
For portrait and other commissions not covered by the standard ordering options, during the initial discussion I am able to give you a clear idea of costs for different options, without obligation. Please email me if you would like to make an enquiry, I will be delighted to help.
