How to commission a painting 

​A commissioned panting is a unique piece of art created to meet your individual requirements.

Are you are looking to buy a piece of original art but can’t quite find the perfect piece? Maybe it’s a certain size painting you are after, or you are looking for a landscape painting of a particular location.

It could be a perfect gift for someone special, or maybe one of my artworks has already caught your eye but it’s not quite the right size or colour.

Have you thought about commissioning a painting? It’s not as expensive as you might imagine.

When you commission a painting, the artwork will be designed and planned to meet needs: Layout, style, size, subject and budget.

Commissioning a painting is not as expensive as you might think, prices start from £180 for a small painting.

How does it work?

  • Contact me

  • Describe your requirements, the subject the size of the painting, the amount you wish to spend on your perfect artwork and the timescale.

  • I will put together a commission request for with all the details and price for the painting.

  • Once the commission has been agreed you pay a deposit, you will receive regular updates of the progress

  • When the painting has been completed you will pay the balance and the artwork will be dispatched to you. (UK shipping is always free there of course an additional charge for international shipping).

Recent Commission Reviews

We are thrilled with the painting, which has captured the essence of Corfu. 
The painting is a joy to look at, and we love, the detail of the spring flowers
and the trunks of the olive trees.
You are a very talented artist, who included everything we asked for, and we really
appreciate that you took on such a large commission, with all the hard work that
must have entailed.

I opened the picture and the first words I said to myself... ?

Perfect, it is perfect?

I love it, and I know my partner will be completely surprised and overwhelmed as it has captured our memory. Thank you.


Just to thank you again for the lovely painting you delivered to me. Might I also compliment you on your commission process. You responded quickly to my messages and listened to what I was after before making recommendations and producing the finished article. The painting was well wrapped and delivered in good time ahead of the tight deadline I had set you. A very good service all round. J.D.

Colette produced the most magical painting of our cottage. Every time we look at it we smile as it is almost alive with the spirit of the place that she has captured so beautifully. Thank you, Colette for such a gem of a painting to hang on our wall. P&N UK
