I AM HAPPY TO ARRANGE A PAYMENT PLAN TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS
I have been creating these pieces for thirty years, and I understand that commissioning artwork such as this is both deeply personal and emotional. I work closely with all my clients to ensure that I understand exactly what you want and I will endeavor to create something that you will be delighted with. Each piece is lovingly hand painted with great attention to detail using the finest materials, and takes a great many hours to complete. I will send you photos as the painting progresses so that you can be a part of the creative process and watch your artwork take shape. In this digital age, a hand painted piece of original art such as this, is a true treasure; one that can be passed on to your children for generations to come.

Gold or palladium leaf

I use the finest quality vellum, supplied by William Cowley of the UK
High resolution scanning and preparation of artwork for print

For original artwork I recommend a courier to ensure the safety of your piece. I use DHL couriers. The price will depend on your location. Originals will be securely shipped from Espoo, Finland
The standard paper that I use is 230gsm pergamenata and is included in the price.
The Italian-made Pergamenata Parchment is an imitation parchment. It is a translucent 100% sulphite, neutral pH paper, with the crisp snap, mottled look and hard feel you would expect from an actual sheet of animal parchment. Available in antique white or natural cream.
600gsm Watercolour paper
I use the finest quality gouache , either Winsor & Newton or Schminke. Where possible I always choose the most lightfast colours.
