If you see a piece you admire but is not quite what you were looking for or you would like to have a piece of artcreated bespoke for you, it is possible and simple to commission the artist to create something unique to fit your personal specifications, to suit your budget.
Be it a family portrait, painting for your home, photograph of your partner or a bespoke piece for your interior, commissioning allows you to chose the subject matter, colours, style and dimensions of a piece. Commissioning a piece for yourself, or someone important to you, is a highly personal gift that can become a family heirloom or commemorate a special occasion. It also allows you to purchase the perfect piece for your home or workplace.

The Commissioning Process
We have an extensive collection of artists working in a diversity of mediums and styles. Whether you are commissioning a portrait of yourself, a member of your family, a friend, a pet, or on behalf of an organisation, we will consult with you and your chosen artist throughout the process to ensure your intended result is achieved.
Portraits can be created in a number of ways depending on your schedule and desires.
For paintings or drawings;
- The artist can work from an existing photograph
- Photographs can be taken specifically for the artist to work from
- Sittings can be arranged at your convenience for life drawing/ painting
- An artwork similar to an exisiting piece may be created to your specifications
- Photography shoots can be held at a professional studio, in your home, or at an alternative location of your choosing.
We will always offer to arrange at least one meeting (more if required) between yourself and the chosen artists so that you can express your requirements directly to the artists and providing them with the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the subject.
Payment will be required before the artist starts the commission and the 14 day trial once you received the piece will apply and 50% of the price of the artwork will be refubded. If you decide not to keep the commissioned piece, the artist will have the right to advertise the artwork for sale on DegreeArt.
With photography commissions, an agreement will be reached regarding the editions produced. You will always be offered the absolute right to own the piece.
