Commissions

Commission a Chinese painting or calligraphy piece

Whether it's for your home or as a gift, I can collaborate with you to craft a personalised work of Chinese art.

If you have a specific calligraphy style in mind, I can write in four different styles: running/half cursive, standard script, as well as ancient seal and clerical scripts.

Feel free to explore my website to see examples of my work and what I can offer.

For your home

Do you have a vision for what you want? Or perhaps you'd like to brainstorm ideas together?

With your input, I'll create a unique piece of Chinese art tailored to your space, bringing joy every time you see it.

A meaningful gift

Whether it's to commemorate a new home, a birth, or a special anniversary, I can suggest suitable imagery or wording for exquisite Chinese calligraphy.

For inspiration, consider these traditional subjects in Chinese art:

  • Plum blossom: symbolizes perseverance and renewal
  • Orchid flower: embodies virtue and purity, reflecting the spirit of spring
  • Bamboo: signifies strength and tranquility
  • Chrysanthemum: an autumn flower symbolizing moral strength and resilience in adversity
  • Peonies, wisteria, and magnolia: symbolize feminine beauty
  • Peach or lotus flowers with mandarin birds, or a pair of carp fish: ideal for celebrating marriage or anniversaries
  • Pine tree: represents the virtues of self-discipline and fortitude, often paired with a white crane for longevity

A unique 60th birthday gift

In Chinese culture, reaching 60 years marks a full cycle in the lunar calendar. Consider calligraphy expressing well-wishes or images like a pine tree, peach tree, or crane.

I'd be honored to create a piece of art for you
