A piece of work created especially for you is very special. It will be a complete one-off and something you grow to love more and more as time goes by.
With commissioning you don’t just end up with something that is unique to you but you also become part of the design process. Lesley is experienced at handling this process and is regularly commissioned. She communicates with you beforehand (ideally this will involve a studio visit, but not always), she finds out what you want….gets to know you, asks questions. She’ll want to know why you want it and how she can make it personal to you. And if you are unsure she can advise.
You’ll then be sent a commissioning contract and asked for a deposit. Commissioning a piece of work is slightly more expensive but you have the artist’s undivided attention and something is created with just you in mind.
You’ll be sent regular images and invited to offer input. Producing something that communicates a part of you is often what it’s all about and Lesley will work hard to achieve this.
