Aside from my life as a fine artist, photographer and writer I am also a commercial artist and illustrator. I use the same skills and media for both disciplines, the only difference being the degree to which a customer or the market or my whim dictates the outcome.
Personal commissions, for an individual to keep or give as a gift rather than use for a business purpose, are a special category of art, and I’m happy to create a memorable image for an individual or family. I am known for my portraits of companion animals and in large part developed my skills in most media by creating over 100 portraits since 1992, not including a few dozen just for me.I’ve also created custom paintings, sketches and drawings of homes and special places. You’ll find both in this special gallery of Commissioned Artwork.
