Commission an Artwork

If you love art but want something a bit more personal, then consider commissioning a bespoke painting.  Perhaps you are looking for an extra special gift or are redecorating and want to give your home a boutique feel?  From family portraits, beloved pets to favourite views, Jo can bring your image to life and add a unique touch to your home.

Commissions  Choose from my three styles



Wouldn’t you love to have your favourite scene recreated as a painting? I could paint it to your specification.

Using the technique of photo-montage and creativity and some painting, I could make a new quirky picture by collaging some of your favourite pics. I think these make great gifts for e,g, 50th Birthdays etc.

Warhol style
Think pop art. Think bright colours. A commission done in an Andy Warhol style looks modern and fun and works well with people and pets.

About art commissions

Are you confident with the idea of commissioning a piece of art? You may have questions which I hope I have answered here. If you need further information, please get in touch and I will be happy to help.

It depends on how busy I am but I will try to finish it within a month. A deadline is always useful to work towards.

It obviously depends on many factors such as size and media but I can work with most budgets. 

Firstly I would recommend talking to me or emailing with me with some photos, size and preferred media. If I am sure I can carry out the commission I will give a guide price and if agreed request a 50% non returnable deposit.

No, it does not matter. I can work with good quality photos and will email you with updates so we are both confident the commission is going in the right direction.

I have not had any clients yet who have changed their minds but this can happen for whatever reasons. If I have started the work and spent time working on it, understandably, I will have to keep some of the deposit to cover materials and time. But I always strive to work with my clients to get a great result and ensure a satisfied outcome for all.

You can email or ‘Whats app’ me the picture or pictures. The photos need to be clear and of good quality. I like to work from a selection of photos.

I need good quality images, the required size and media. I am more than happy to look at a ‘Pinterest board’ or a powerpoint of your ideas also. I want to make sure you get a unique artwork.

Yes, I email proofs or if local bring over the painting at certain points to make sure you are happy with the way it is proceeding and to see if there are any colours etc that need tweaking.. 


Lily loved the club, her drawings of cats are much improved and she told us that you also had a look at artists’ drawings. I am impressed, this club seems to be very well done, thank you!

Budding Artists

I love Budding Artists because it means that I can relax and draw with my friends after school. It makes me feel happy and I bring home lovely work to show to my mum

I just wanted to let you know how much my daughter loves your class, her art has changed dramatically since joining art club

Budding Artists

Thank you for another brilliant inspirational term. You are the most fantastic teacher. The only problem is that I've nearly finished another sketchbook. I seem to be averaging one per term. Your classes are seriously addictive: to do more art!

Budding Artists

Thanks again for a fabulous morning. The length of the session was just right, the activities adapted so well to a range of ages and abilities. and you were both fantastic with the kids. They loved it and I loved it!

Thanks for your hard work Jo. I understand that the students really enjoyed your sessions, that sign up and attendance was excellent (always a good sign!) and that you were well-prepared and enthusiastic. I hope it was a positive experience for you as well
