When booking a commission with me, I make sure that my clients are a part of every step of the process because to me, ordering an original painting is about more than just what the final artwork looks like, it's the whole experience -
The initial communication between client and artist about ideas,
Seeing digital mock ups of what your artwork could look like in my painterly style,
Seeing progress shots of the artwork while it's being created,
The packaging of the final piece ready to be posted out to its new home,
Even after by helping to provide advice on framing ideas.
It is important to me that I guide my clients through the whole process so that they get more than just a beautiful piece of artwork to cherish for years, but they also get a memorable experience and feel like part of the process of creating the painting too.
Please have a look below at some of my clients talk about their experiences of booking a commission with me.
Lily - A5 Pet Portrait - 2023
"I was lucky enough to win the Christmas raffle for a pet portrait. Olly kept me updated throughout with mock ups, colour choices and his progress so far. The portrait arrived beautifully packaged and was absolutely gorgeous. Looks exactly like my Lily and I can’t wait to hang it up in the house somewhere :)"
Roux - A5 Pet Portrait - 2023
"We commissioned this portrait of our son's 8 month Fox Red Labrador as a surprise for his 25th Birthday. Olly asked us to send him a number of head & shoulders shots that we loved, so that he could pick which one he felt would translate best into an excellent painting. Every step of the way Olly checked back with us to ensure that he was creating exactly what we wanted & the amazing piece he was producing was perfect. Needless to say, the finished piece speaks for itself & we are all astounded & thrilled with the outcome. The attention to detail, & pure talent of this artist is amazing & we would highly recommend him to you all."
Milo - A2 Pet Portrait - 2022
"Olly has captured Milo perfectly in my commissioned piece! He used 2 images and merged them into one. I couldn’t love the art anymore if I tried!! Thankyou so much Olly- love Abbey & Milo xx"
Belle - A3 Pet Portrait - 2021
"The portrait shows Belle just as we remember her and we are so glad we now have a permanent reminder of her. Thank you so much. Robey family"

"You did an absolutely stunning job!! I had every faith you'd pull it off and I'm in love with it thank you so much"
Paddington, Sapphie and Tom - A3 Pet Portrait - 2020
"I can't thank you enough for creating the most perfect present for my parents from myself and Will.

Mango - A2 Pet Portrait - 2020
"Big fan of the piece Olly did of Mango for my birthday. She's my number one golden gal and he did an amazing job painting her. Seeing it alongside the original picture is crazy. Was an amazing present."
#PortraitsForNHSHeroes - A3 Portrait - 2020
"To think somebody was able to create these pieces of art with their own two hands.. just blows my mind. The skill and artistry involved to create those details"
#PortraitsForNHSHeroes - A3 Portrait - 2020
"To say that life is far from normal now would be an understatement. It’s a crazy world we are living in, but sometimes right in the middle of crazy something wonderful happens. This is my wonderful. I can’t thank Olly enough for this beautiful painting. This is my little bit of history, the memories of this time in my life will never fade but to have something to look at, something real, something to remind me what I was/am still part of is priceless. I love it. Thank you so much Olly. "
