Commissioning a piece is a very simple process. Gilly works from photos for your portrait, so there’s no need for her to see the subject, a good range of photos will enable her to create a beautiful drawing. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email at any time!

  • Take photos:
    Take photos that capture the subjects personality and character well. The chosen photo (or in some cases, photos) are very important in the process and so you must choose them wisely. Gilly’s expertise lies in interpreting and reproducing your photo and establishing the characteristics and personality of individual subjects.
  • Contact:
    Once you have taken your photos, the next step is to contact Gilly, via email, Facebook or phone, and forward any photos you have at a good resolution. She may then establish which photos will be the best to work with.
  • Making payment:
    Gilly can send an electronic invoice to you via paypal, which accepts all debit/credit cards. Cash or cheque can also be accepted if you are collecting your piece or if a meeting has been organised.
  • Client list:
    Gilly works on a first come, first served basis and she always has a client list i.e. a number of clients waiting for commissioned pieces. Waiting times for drawings depend on how busy it is at any given time, but she will always be able to give you an approximate completion date.  If you have a particular deadline for a piece e.g. someone’s birthday, Gilly will always try her absolute best to accommodate you. Gift vouchers can also be purchased for those who would like to give a portrait as a gift for a special date.
  • Bespoke Framing:
    A full framing service is provided for all artworks. If you are unable to collect, and are interested in a framed portrait, please mention this when you enquire, so that Gilly may provide prices for postage and packaging.
