Commission a Portrait for the Perfect Timeless and Unique Gift


The Perfect Original Gift

Commissioning a portrait of a loved one for that special friend or relative makes the perfect and timeless gift which will be cherished for a lifetime, and generations to come.

Why commission a portrait?

A hand painted or pencil drawn portrait is an evocative way to capture the likeness of a person. Unlike photography, an artist has freedom to capture individuality, to focus on specific traits to capture something much deeper than just a likeness, and produce an artwork which has great aesthetic appeal. A good piece of artwork will stand the test of time and have appeal forever.

If you're looking for that perfect gift, consider commissioning an original portrait. I can work to a wide range of budgets, from a beautifully finished pencil drawn portrait on paper, to the most special gift of all, a large portrait on canvas. For more information, please click commissioning or contact me for an informal chat on 01691 839097, or message me.

I'm based on the Welsh borders of Shropshire, near Oswestry and Shrewsbury, but also travel to clients anywhere.
