    Commissioning a painting


    This mutually enjoyable process starts with a conversation, prereably face to face. My role is to establish how I can realise your intention and through questioning we can establish a direction and solution. Each customer requires different things in a painting and that's when we can establish the things that are important to you. I alwys provide sketch drawings to confirm that my approach delivers on the expectation, eliminating confusion or time. I will provide framing recommendations and placement of the final piece if required.

  • How to commission a unique piece of sculpture that you can treasure forever.

    How to commission a unique piece of sculpture that you can treasure forever.
    Owning a work of art is such a pleasurable and enjoyable experience. You may have previously purchased sculpture or have been unsuccessful in finding that right piece. If so, why not commission a work directly from a sculptor ?

    Commissioning an artist to produce a work of art can be highly rewarding for both parties. The work is personal and unique, it will be specifically produced for you and your requirements. Each commission will vary slightly in the steps taken from conception through to completion, as each commissioner, artist, situation and circumstance is
    unique. My process is outlined here in six easy stages.

    Firstly, it helps if you know what you might like. I will ask you questions and explore creative avenues but it helps to have something in mind and if that includes a location within your garden this helps too.
    From initial contact, I will advise you on ideas and provide sketches and a small scale model (maquette) if required. Discussions cover size, scale and placement together with timescales and budgets.

    Most bronze castings are produced to a limited edition of 9, after that the mould is destroyed guaranteeing you a very special piece indeed! If you want a one-off piece, this can be arranged.
    You have every opportunity to see the work in progress including the casting at the bronze foundry, it’s always a fascinating and rewarding process that adds to your commissioning experience. You can also be there at the installation or wait and create
    your own unveiling or maybe as a surprise for a partner. This whole process is about partnership and creativity, you choose your involvement to suit you and will lead to a special and memorable occasion - as it should be.

  • Commissioning Sculpture



    The first step is to be clear in what you want to achieve. Whether it be a central garden sculpture or an interior design piece.

    Based on your initial thoughts, I will meet with you and explore new ways to exceed your expectations.

    Finding the right location for your new arrival is crucial to your experience and enjoyment of it. The space around the sculpture is as important as the piece itself.

    4 SCALE
    Depending on location, the scale of the piece can be sized accordingly based on the proportions of the small model (maquette) produced.
    From the original sculpture, silicone moulds are made and the ‘lost wax casting process’ is used. A colour (patina) is applied to suit the piece and agreed with you, the customer.

    The delivery and installation is all taken care of to ensure the safety and permanence
    of the piece. And of course, your satisfaction!

  • Bronze Pet Sculpture, Hearts and Memories Captured

    Bronze Pet Sculpture

    Hearts and Memories Captured

    I’ve always loved dogs. Having lost a beloved friend some twenty years ago, she’s still in my heart and lives on in my memories.

    Having your pet immortalised in bronze is a gift in itself, and having it close, refreshes all the good memories and feelings exchanged. We remember and treasure their unique character and behaviour, the way they sit, tilt their head and sleep outstretched on the sofa or the bottom of the bed!

    All of this can be captured by commissioning me to create something that family, friends and generations will love and treasure forever!

    Let’s start a conversation that by the way, can happen at any stage of your pet’s life journey.
