If you’ve never commissioned an artwork before the idea alone can seem overwhelming. Plus there is most likely a million questions buzzing around inside your mind.

Why commission an artwork?

You discover the artwork you fell in love with sold, or perhaps the work you liked wasn’t quite the right size for your space.

Maybe after searching and searching for what you want, you can’t find the artwork you’re after.

Or you need something personal and specific like a portrait.

That’s where commissioning an artwork comes to the rescue.

All across Australia, many people enjoy artworks of all varieties in a range of different circumstances throughout their daily lives. From quirky, creative and inspiring paintings on the walls of our offices and work spaces providing us with motivation and enthusiasm, to beautiful family portraits which turn our homes into peaceful, private sanctuaries for relaxation and recreation. There are a great number of different ways in which quality art can transform our lives for the better.

How much does it cost?

A commissioned artwork doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

For most people who buy art, the artwork is more than an investment of money. Often they are purchasing more than just an object it’s the story about the work, and a private commission allows them to talk about the artist and their relationship with that person, as well as the genesis of the artwork and how it progressed. That extra involvement adds considerable personal value to the commissioned artwork without it necessarily costing much more.

A private commission creates a “pride factor” for the buyer. They have an opportunity to be a part of the creative process in terms of indicating what they want and seeing it come to life. This forms a partnership with the artist, and you can’t put a price on that feeling.

Where do I find an artist and how do I choose the right one?

That’s what we’re here for! We can help find the artist perfect for what you want.

Quite often people contact us with what they want created and we will put together a selection of artists to choose from.

So just ask us and we can help.
