Fearless John. Watercolour on paper, painting by Lee Devonish, 2011Commission an artwork

I’m currently accepting commissions for portraits, site-specific pieces and other artwork.


Commissioning a portrait by distance can be tricky. I’m happy to use photographs as source material, but my process is not as simple as copying photographs – be prepared to supply at least 5 images.


I work most frequently across a variety of two-dimensional and three-dimensional media including oils, watercolour, wood and ceramic, but this is not an exhaustive list and I have previously used more unusual materials such as soap, thread and cardboard to create portraits. I’m easily able to work with external ideas to achieve a happy collaboration.


Have a look at my Etsy store for a guide to pricing of my artwork. Payments for commissioned pieces can be made in instalments after receipt of a deposit.
