Commissioned paintings

Story of the Gray lady painting.


In 2015 we received an inquiry via the website. My website had been lie for a few years but the content was mostly informal blog content. While I had sold a few works around the globe, selling was not my objective .I was still learning and forming my style.


I received, the email from a couple in California early in the year. They had seen a painting on my website that I had sold at the Oxford Artweeks the year before. They were a little disappointed, so I revived an old sketch that was similar to the painting they were after.


This wonderful couple came to me after they experience a fire. They lived in Californian forest which suffered a catastrophic fire in which all their possessions were destroyed.


Lady Gray was created to help them to settle into their new home. I wanted to gie them a painting that reflected strength and resilience of the female body. Bold solid shapes leaning on each other.
