Our Services / Commission

If you see a work of contemporary art you admire but it is not quite what you were looking for, it is often possible to commission the artist to create something unique to fit your personal specifications for a similar price.

Be it a family portrait, painting of your home, photograph of your partner or a bespoke artwork for your interior, commissioning allows you to choose the subject matter, colours, style and dimensions of a piece. Commissioning an artwork for yourself, or someone important to you, is a highly personal gift that can become a family heirloom or commemorate a special occasion. It also allows you to purchase the perfect piece for your home or workplace.
