Just email us: email@example.com or contact your chosen artist directly to discuss your requirements.

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 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” Click here to contact me.
With over 15 years’ experience Sara Sherwood has many testimonials and her website explains the process in more detail.
