Art is very personal. Each painting has its own symbolism and inspiration.
A private commission can be imbued with deep meaning, depending on the client’s story, and this I always respect.
My first overseas commission came from Switzerland, when I lived in Kakadu National Park as a young university graduate. Since then, I have sold paintings to clients in many countries including the United Kingdom, Italy, Kuwait, Dubai and South Africa, and throughout Australia.
Commissioning a painting is an easy process. We start with a discussion on subject/theme, your preferred size, medium and price range, and we agree on an expected completion date.
I am happy to provide advice and usually email images of the work in progress.
Paintings are framed unless, as with raw linen, leaving the painting unframed actually enhances the art.
Willie Wagtails on Wire (see photo above) was commissioned after a client had admired my Common Redstart on Wire, painted after birdwatching in the Middle East. Willie Wagtails on Wire is oil on canvas and features an old fencepost from farmland near Bendigo, Victoria.
