Since my first commission in 2012 (a series of portraits for the National Library of Scotland), I’ve completed numerous bespoke works for various clients, both private and public – everything from helping couples celebrate anniversaries and birthdays, to creating book covers, illustrating wall space for retail environments – even developing creative recruitment ads for UK Intelligence Services.

Whether it’s a small but special gift, or unique visuals for an ad campaign, my commissioning process is flexible and transparent, with timing and pricing explored at the very start.

My work begins with your area of interest. I search for a range of original maps from countless sources, covering every part of the world. I take great care to ensure the maps I offer are of the highest quality, and are suitable for use. A large part of my process is dependent on what I find, although I aim to offer a selection of possibilities in a range of different sizes, prices, scales and styles. I naturally restore and if needed, resize maps before any drawing or painting begins. Client input is always welcome – you may already have a particular map in mind, or perhaps you have a meaningful photograph you’d like me to look at – maybe you have both, or neither. Every commission is different.

All bespoke work is planned in rough first, and regular feedback is provided both ways, before, during and after completion.

If you’d like further information with no obligation, contact me for details on timing, pricing and other specifics.
