We need to establish a clear brief – a mutual understanding of what you would like and what it is possible to provide. This will be done by reference to my example works, your photographs and other visual references together with email and telephone conversations prior to commencement. 

It would be useful to understand exactly what you intend to use the work for, e.g. framed for display, electronic or print reproduction. 

I suggest you take a look at my work and identify three or four of the pieces you like to help us confirm the brief in terms of medium, composition and size. 

I work in oils, water colour, charcoal and pencil. 

Once we have agreed the brief, I will commence the piece and at a suitable point send you an image so that you can see how the work has progressed. Some minor amends are possible at this stage however given we have agreed the brief, I will not be able to make major changes. I will send an image of the final work prior to shipping.

The cost of my work does not include travel should you wish to meet I am happy to do so locally and would charge for the cost of travel only.

I would not usually frame the works. This is due to the wide variety of framing available, difficulty in conveying the finishes, increased cost of shipping and greater potential for damage in transit.

Where the work is an interpretation of real life it is done in the style and form of the examples of my work you have seen and is an art work or illustration not a photo realisation. Combining Both digital and hand drawn images create a lasting piece of artwork.

Unless otherwise agreed in writing by myself, you are buying the piece of work and not the rights to reproduce it in other forms. If you wish to do so this is possible, please ask.
