The commissioning process is very simple. I have extensive experience of working with clients – both corporate and private – home & abroad. Every project has been a lot of fun resulting in a rewarding outcome for both parties.
A typical engagement with a client would start off with a meeting, either in person where possible or online, or via telephone or email to discuss and outline your basic requirements of the piece. Things to consider are aspects like preferred colours, size of the canvas, level of energy (ranging from soothing to vibrant and powerful), ranges of textures, metallic or non-metallic finish, timescales or any critical deadlines, and of course budget.
Where possible, I usually like to visit the setting where the piece will eventually be situated, so that I can get an idea of the surroundings, i.e colours of the walls and furnishings, size of room and very importantly the lighting. Lighting plays a key part, whether natural or artificial, as the piece will change its appearance accordingly. If a site visit is not possible, as is often the case with international clients, I usually ask for pictures or arrange for a video call, along with any swatches or additional input the client may wish to provide.
Once I gather details of your requirements, I then follow up with a few suggestions along with approximate timescales and costs for the client to review and finalise. The cost of the commission is based on varying aspects such as size, level of detail, materials used, and time & effort required to complete the piece. Once the scope and details of the commission have been agreed, I then start on the work.
I offer all my clients the chance to view the work in progress, be it in person or online. Sometimes clients decline this offer as they prefer to see the finished piece without any additional input from them. Once the piece is finished, it is delivered to your preferred location.
Please contact me if you require any further details or would like to commission me to create an abstract for you.
