SELECTED COMMISSIONED COLLAGES
When commissioning a collage from me you get to co author your piece. I am the facilitator of the artwork and you are the director, providing the initial image to work from as well as supplying the information you would like hidden within the portrait. You can also supply the materials for it if you have particular magazines you would like me to work with. Here are a few portraits I have created, but I also get asked to create landscapes of specific places, homes and other images that are valuable to the person requesting.
Dave had just retired and wanted to celebrate with something just for him, he asked that I show his love of Everton Football club (scarf) alongside his other interests of opera and Dennis the Menace tie.
When Leicester won the Premier League in 2015 a fan commissioned me to create Claudio Ranieri's portrait and here it was signed from the boot of my car outside the training ground.

When Leonard Cohen died a portrait request was made to include the lyrics of a favourite tune also.
A commissioned portrait requested by the staff of Beauchamp School when the headteacher retired.
A double portrait here of a pet parrot and owner.
Headteacher Mr.Baynes had his portrait with the well wishes of all his students included into the picture alongside his own hobbies.
Although this portrait ot Paul Weller was commissioned by a fan I was fortunate to have an opportunity to show it to him and have him sign it which was an added bonus for all.
