Elaine has been undertaking commissioned works on and off, since 1993. Examples can be viewed in gallery, under previous works. Requests for horse, dog and cat portraits are regularly accepted and undertaken. But she would also be happy to undertake requests for scapes (land, wood, sea, etc.).
Artworks are priced individually and according to size, and take into account cost of materials and timescale to produce each piece. Unframed artworks cost less than artworks finished with a frame.
Elaine uses sketches and photographs as aids to create her artworks. If you are local to Bournemouth and surrounding areas, where possible and with permission of course, taking her own photographs of the subject(s) is preferable.
However, if you live further than the Elaine is prepared to travel or this is not possible for whatever reason. Then she would be happy work from your photo references of the subject or subjects, but provide high to good quality images only please - poor quality images will be rejected. Any images you supply to the artist, will be returned to client upon completion and collection of commissioned artwork.
Following mutual agreement between artist and client(s), 50% of the agreed sum must be paid up front before work commences. 50% payment is non-refundable. Balance to be due upon artwork's completion.
Regular updates on the works progress from roughs to completed artwork, can be sent via email or if the Client(s) are local to me; then a personal visit can be arranged to suit and the Client(s) can come and see the artwork's progress for themselves, should they wish.
There are no obligations to make further payments if you are dissatisfied, but all monies due must be paid in full before artwork is despatched.
If you are interested in commissioning an artwork, please ask for further inquires and a quote, Elaine would like to from you.
