Thank you for showing an interest in booking a commission. Due to high demand my waiting list is approximately 4 years long.
I run a two waiting list system for commissions.
My “secure list” is maintained at 6 months long, it is booked via an online form with all the information about your commission and contact details and confirmed with a 20% deposit. Once you are booked onto this waiting list the price scale for your commission will not change.
The second waiting list is a Mail Chimp sign up list. This is a no commitment list which you can sign up to with your name, email and phone number. I will be contacting people from this list (in order of registration) 6 months prior to when their commission will be completed in order to book them onto my secure list. At the point of contact you will be asked if you would like to proceed with the commission, and if so, asked to complete a booking form, pay a 20% deposit and photographs will then be arranged. Currently my Mail Chimp sign up list has 122 people which I estimate to be approximately 3.5 years worth of work.
Please be aware that due to the time-scales involved my prices may have increased before you are booked onto my secure list. However, when registering onto the Mail Chimp list, you are under no obligation to complete your commission order.
In exceptional circumstances, photographs can be arranged in advance of confirmed bookings when an animal is likely to pass away or be otherwise unavailable before this point, please do contact me if this is the case.
Many thanks for your interest in Bex Arts and I hope to speak to you in the future!
Commissioning a portrait is a simple process and a mini photo-shoot is included as part of the service. Becky works very precisely from one or two high quality photographs which are chosen together with the client from the photo-shoot. You will have the option to receive photo updates as the drawing progresses (“work in progress” photos are also often posted on social media for commissions that are not destined as surprise gifts!) and you are welcomed to her studio for a viewing in person on completion to approve the finished drawing. Becky can also work from client’s own photographs particularly for memorial drawings or mail-order commissions.
Cost increases with the size and complexity of the drawing commissioned. Charcoal drawings can be produced from A3 (42 x 30cm) up to a maximum size of A0 (119 x 84cm) for a truly dramatic centrepiece! Smaller drawings are usually completed in graphite to maintain a high level of detail. A detailed price list is available on my commission prices page.
To place a commission please register using the link above. Once your name reaches the top of the list you will be asked to complete a booking form online. Upon receipt of the form an invoice will be returned to you and 20% of the final cost is due as a deposit in order to secure your position on Becky’s confirmed waiting list. It is advised that you register well in advance as the lead time can be quite lengthy. You can also check Becky’s schedule which is updated regularly.
