One of my favourite things about taking commissions is when clients request something unusual and beautiful like this lovely scene. 12″ x 10″ / 30 x 25cm

10″ x 8″ / 30 x 25cm

This portrait is of my son, Rory. I wanted a portrait which captures him as the day dreamer he is, so this pose of him absentmindedly munching on an Oreo while reading a book was perfect. 12″ x 12″ / 30 x 30cm

This is one of my favourite pieces I have ever drawn or painted, I hope it captures a very special time for this beautiful family. 12″ x 10″ / 30 x 25cm

This portrait was commissioned by a graphic designer, I love the layout she requested! 10″ x 8″ / 25 x 20cm

While commissioning this wedding portrait, the client wanted a scene of the couple looking happy and natural rather than a staged pose. I think it was a lovely idea and makes the portrait much more delicate and personal. 12″ x 10″ / 30 x 25cm

Detail from a giant 70″ x 40″ portrait, pastel on masonite board.

Fursa grooming her human’s beard. 10″ x 8″ / 25 x 20cm

This drawing was from a very small 65 year old photograph which had lost a lot of detail over the years, so other photographs and stories of the girl and her animals were essential for capturing this scene. 12″ x 10″ / 30 x 25cm
