I am happy to work with you!

Whether you require a single picture, or several;
the capturing of a special view,
or a colourful piece for a particular wall...

A PRIVATE COMMISSION gives you a very special picture, which is totally personal and unique.

A recent private commission gave me the chance to explore an area I was less familiar with: the moors around Grimwith Reservoir. Here I was given free rein with colour and shape, but the client asked for certain shorelines to be visible, and for the piece to convey a certain mood.

'Lucia kept us informed of progress - starting from early photographs for us to agree the best view, to receiving regular updates on the painting's progress... the result is a superb reflection of what we requested, ultimately the whole experience, and the picture itself, surpassed our expectations'

Another commission was inspired when clients saw my 'Pen-y-ghent Speaks' picture. Together, we created 'Pen-y-ghent Awakens'; matching composition, size and colour requirements so that it fit perfectly with their home:

'I was thrilled by the finished result, which was even more spectacular than I had envisaged in my mind's eye. Lucia's ability to realise her client's idea is immaculate - she retained my utter confidence throughout the creative process.'

Whatever your requirements, I would enjoy discussing the possibilities with you. You may be unsure of the starting point - I would be delighted to mull over your thoughts with you and help define the project.
