    Do you do commissions?

    Yes. In fact a large proportion of the works on the site were commissioned.

    How do I go about commissioning a piece of work?

    It’s very simple. Get in touch and we’ll go from there. Contact

    How much do you charge for a piece of work?

    There are a number of factors that come into play when it comes to pricing including the size,  medium, and subject.  As commissioned work is bespoke I don’t have a standard pricing scheme. As a starting point though, a  simple oil portrait (16×20) would be around £500.

    Which medium do you use?

    For a commission it depends on what’s been agreed with the client which usually means oil. I also use acrylic, charcoal and pencil amongst others.

    What’s your practice?

    I usually start with sketching and photography and working an image up from those references on my easel at home.

    What’s your favourite subject?

    Honestly, I don’t have a favourite  as such. I just look for something  that interests me in whatever the subject happens to be. I call this my ‘hook’. It could be the lighting of a scene, the look in a face or the texture of a surface.

    Who’s your favourite artist?

    This is a bit like choosing your favourite film! There are many artists that I like but there are a handful that I come back to time and time again. In no particular order I would cite Rembrandt, John Singer Sargent,  John William Waterhouse, Lord Leighton, Corot and Piranesi.
