commissioning a painting – comisiynu paentiad

I accept a few commissions each year of places or events that have a special meaning to people.  Weddings and family celebrations also painted!

Commissioned work costs no more than originals bought from a gallery. The only difference is that prints are not made from your painting. It is yours, and yours alone.

You may be surprised how easy it is to own commissioned work – email or phone to discuss your ideas, for a personal response  without obligation.

Recent commissions include both private individuals, public services and private companies, including:

*Headline book publishers, *Hachette book publishers, *Cnwc Crackers, *Chuckling Goat Co, *The Welsh Assembly Government, *Carmarthen County Council.

Collectors comments:

“Just to say that our painting is hung and looks beautiful. We love the composition and the colours, which are so vibrant and happy. Also loving all the details which make it so special and bring back fond memories of a very happy childhood in Aberaeron. Thanks again for delivering such a lovely painting, which will become a family heirloom. Hope to see you next time we are visiting CeredigionLove and best wishes”   Trevor & Julie

“Helen our beautiful, fabulous painting arrived on Friday when I had the day off so collected it on Monday. We absolutely LOVE our Little Haven painting.

“Well what can I say – the painting is fabulous. Its exactly as I had in my mind’s eye and I am over the moon with the final outcome.” Kathryn

“Jenny the Mermaid” was delivered last night – and the expression on her face was priceless. There was quite a bit of speechless mouth-flapping followed by much hugging of the picture while she sat with a cheesy grin and kept saying “Helen Elliott painted me as a mermaid!” in a stunned voice. Brilliant. Pure brilliant. Thank you ever so, ever so much for this – it’s been the best present she’s ever received. It will hang on our walls for future generations to be enthralled with, and put a smile on everyones face!”  R.Eccles

“Thank you Helen for the most fabulous piece of art for both Fiona and I to remember our wedding day”  Ioan & Fiona
