Why Commission?

Bring your inspiration and I will design.
A commission is an opportunity to have a one-of-a-kind, unique piece of artwork customised to your style and design.

If there is an abstract painting from Sharifa’s collection that you love, but it has now sold and is no longer available, or if there are multiple abstract paintings that you love and would like to draw out different elements to amalgamate into one, then a commission or bespoke artwork is for you.

Sharifa’s approach to producing an art commission is flexible and collaborative and she thoroughly enjoys working with people from all backgrounds and interests. She is passionate about working closely with her clients to produce pieces of art that both bring your vision and interior to life. 

There is no size limit to the artwork as all of the paintings are custom-made and stretched on a wooden frame using high-quality cotton canvas and premium wood stretcher bars. A bespoke selection of frames is available to choose from to compliment your artwork with the necessary fittings attached for easy hanging.

process and timescale

An initial discussion is held to outline the scope of work (size, style, framing, colour scheme), the details of which will be used to formulate a quote.

Location-dependent, Sharifa will show sample pieces of artwork and framing options either in person or over Skype. Once the details have been finalised, an e-mail summary will be sent and the work commences.  Throughout the process, photo and video updates are shared and client feedback is incorporated into the work. Although timeframes can vary depending on workload, the typical lead time for a commission is between 2-4 weeks. 

Artwork can be shipped worldwide (UPS/DHL) and is securely packed, guaranteeing it is delivered safely to your door with peace of mind. 

A non-refundable deposit of 50% will be taken to secure your artwork. After the commission is complete, the remaining 50% is requested upon dispatch.  If you are interested, please get in touch and Sharifa will get back to you as soon as possible.
