COMMISSIONS
I undertake commissions based on customers own photographs of their houses and gardens or a favourite scene. Prices start at £1000

Or if you prefer, I can visit the location and take photographs as a base for the commission This is charged for separately

Discussions start with a selection of photographs and their suitability and then move on to sizes, prices, mounts, frames and the time scale involved. This is all designed to give the client what they want

Email or post a photograph to me and I will give you a quote

'it's a beautiful piece of work and my wife was delighted with her present - it's only when one sees your work 'in the flesh' that one can appreciate the 3D effect of the technique. Many thanks.'

I was commissioned to embroiderer this garden scene in 2017. It is to commemorate the amazing garden the owners have created over many years. They have made the decision to downsize and wanted to take their garden with them as an embroidery, it's all about happy memories!

This view of the Italian Alps was completed in December 2016. It was commissioned as a retirement gift.
This beautiful tree lined walk is located on an old railway line near Oswestry.

I was commissioned to embroider this in the summer of 2014.
