If you’re considering a Cornish commission and would like to bring the Cornish outdoors to your home, let’s talk (preferably over a cuppa).

What matters to me the most is that you to have the painting you’ve always wanted. Our initial conversation will start with your ideas about the location and subject of your painting, the size and where you’d like it in your home. I can hear about what you like, and what you don’t, and we’ll go from there. We can also discuss your budget.

Commission FAQs

How much does a commission cost?

Commissions are typically more that the price of an original painting. I’m happy to discuss pricing in more detail.

How long will a commission take?

Again, this is dependent on the size of the painting. I’m unable to work to short or tight timescales but aim to complete commissions as soon as possible. I’d be happy to discuss you timescales

How does payment work?

Once a commission has been agreed, a 50% deposit will be required. The balance will be paid on completion.

What if I change my mind?

It’s important to me that you love your painting. I am unable to offer returns or exchanges on commissions. All sales of commissions are final. You will have opportunities to share thoughts and request changes in the development of the piece.
