Just email the gallery on or contact your chosen artist directly to discuss your wishes and they will arrange the details with you.

If you see one of Sarah Knight’s limited edition linocuts that you like, but not in the colours for you, she can mix her printing inks to the colour palette you require.

For land and seascapes, she can semi-abstract from one or more photographs you provide, adding the texture and movement that are a theme of these paintings.

SARA SHERWOOD - Cityscape, landscape, abstract and abstract portrait

Sara Sherwood creates cityscapes and abstracts in oil on canvas. She starts by chatting about which pieces of her art you like, listening and interpreting, she then sketches ideas and discusses colours. By the end of the conversation she is ready to create something unique for you.

I love painting on commission, it gives me purpose and I paint with gratitude. I can create a dramatic statement piece or something more calm, depending on the room and atmosphere you want to create. Challenges are welcome and I often learn new things as a result.
I studied interior design at art college so can also offer art placement suggestions.
Meet me virtually by video call and show me your interior and I can talk through colours and ideas from my home studio

With over 15 years’ experience Sara Sherwood has many testimonials and her website explains the process in more detail.

CLAIRE THOROGOOD - Portraits, animals, people, interiors

Claire Thorogood’s love of capturing the essence of her subject is evident in her human and animal portraiture, whereas understanding how to capture ‘a moment in time’ is portrayed in the light in her landscapes and the far reach in her dancers movements.

STELLA TOOTH - Portraits, people, performers, pets. Drawn and in oils.

Our portrait: your story

Commissioning a portrait from life – or agreed hi-res photos – provides an enjoyable, collaborative experience – and an artwork that projects your image through time. British figurative artist Stella Tooth’s Portrait Experience Card provides the perfect gift for that special anniversary.

Stella also offers a unique new service where, post pet portrait commission, she will make available on her Red Bubble shop your pet’s image on a number of goods from T shirts and phone covers to cushions and duvet covers which anyone will be able to buy, including you, your family and friends.

And, if you want to find out what it’s like to be a rock star, you can commission Stella to give you the next best experience when you take to the stage of the Half Moon Putney post lockdown where she is Resident Artist. Your permanent reminder of your 15 mins of fame will be the reference photos she takes of you – and her drawing or painting. Click here to learn more about the rock star experience.
