Personalised Gifts and Commissions

Presents with a Wow Factor


I love being involved in creating those presents that you want to be  extra special .

The  response by one recipient  of  "Wow" when they opened their present,  followed by "Oh Wow" when they took a closer look, and realised it was made out of maps with meaningful locations,  shows just how special a Personalised gift or Commission  can be.

 A sample  of some of the commissions I've created.

I've created pieces for Birthdays , Wedding Anniversaries (runners or cyclists under the gantry with the date that they got married works really well - as does incorporating the couple's original Wedding Invitations).  As well as Weddings, Civil Partnerships,  Births, Christenings,  Significant Achievements (cycling from Lands End to Jon O Groats) and the occasional special treats to one's self.

Many of my customers are return customers, or were originally the recipients of one of my pieces

I can include your ephemera and memorabilia to make truly personal gifts.

Each commissioned/personalised piece, involves an interactive process between us; and starts with me listening to your ideas (ideas can be as precise or as sketchy as you like).  I generally tend to ask a few questions, so I can make it truly special  (and at this point , between us, we often  start generating lots of really exciting ideas).

During the process, I will contact you with "work in progress" pictures which means that you're able to view the piece at various stages and are able to let me know whether you're happy with how it's progressing, and more importantly let me know if you are not.

Perfect gifts for runners, triathletes, swimmers, walkers, cyclists, musicians...



so.... what do you need to do...

 1.  In the first instance Contact Me  (by phone, email or face to face). After I've had a rough brief (and possibly asked some questions)  I will, without obligation,  sketch things out to establish what you like, and more importantly, what you don't like.

2. I'll then develop the sketch further, and again show you pictures of how it is progressing. It's important that you're happy with the piece. As well as listening to what you would like, I will also guide you on what I think will work best.

3.  I d0 ask that once a draft sample has been agreed on and the price finalised, that you pay a  25% non refund able deposit.

I also need the information you provide me is as accurate as possible...while my aim is to have a personalised picture/commission completed within 3 weeks, if the information I receive changes, then this can understandably delay things. 

 I also ask that when you receive "work in progress" pictures that you get back to me promptly (ideally within the same day) as delays in responses, will  also understandably delay me in working on the piece.
