Where art and architecture come together.

A commission is the perfect way to bring a personalised touch to your business, store, home or give as a unique and memorable gift. Your favorite local bar, storefront or restaurant or if it's your store will be hand drawn and coloured using alcohol-based markers and available in a 9"x12" option. These sketches are a great gift idea and addition to any home, office or shop space. Each sketch is unique and based on photos you provide. 

All commissions are created on a 9"x12" acid free, heavyweight, thick 100lb white board and will be signed, dated and sealed in an eco-friendly, compostable cello sleeve made of plant fibers with thick backing cardboard and mailed in a non-bend envelope.   
I only produce architectural sketches of storefronts and homes (no portraits please). The preferred perspective for the sketch is straight on. If you have questions about which photos will work best, please reach out and we can work together.

Artwork copyrights are retained by the Artist and therefore the Artist retains the rights to reproduce the art in the future.

Like many artworks, an original is sensitive to light. Please ensure that your framer uses UV resistant/museum glass when framing. This glass will protect the artwork against direct or indirect light for years to come. 

Please get in touch if you have any questions regarding commissions, commercial work, prints, buying original drawings or any other enquiries.
