ILLUSTRATION & ART COMMISSIONS

I create beautiful hand painted illustrations for just about any occasion!

Commissions are really personal, so it's important that you feel comfortable when working with a designer. Browse my portfolio to see if you like my style and feel free to get in touch for a chat!

 

I work closely with my clients to make sure their needs are met throughout the whole design process. Your say is very important, so that we get it just right!

Visit my main ILLUSTRATION page, for more examples of my art work, or my Instagram for more recent updates.

Each Commission is unique, so there's no 'one fee fits all', but to give you a rough idea of price...

 

Small & Simple (A6 - A3) Personal Commissions from £50 - £100.

Complex or Detailed Watercolour, Gouache or Acrylic (A6+) Personal Commissions from £90 - £250.

Logo Designs or other Illustrations for business or commercial purposes from £150+. 

Wall Murals from £600+ 

 

As I said, each design is unique so do get in touch with me to discuss your commission idea and I will provide you with a quote. 

Do let me know if you have a particular budget, but please remember that a lot of time, energy and skill goes into creating art and this is my profession.
