Commissions

Commission a Chinese painting or piece of calligraphy  

Whether it’s for your own home or as a gift, I can work with you to create a personalised piece of Chinese art. 

If you have a piece of calligraphy in mind, I can write in four different styles: running and standard script, as well as the ancient seal and clerical scripts. 

Please do browse my website to get a feel for my work and what I can offer you.

For your home

Do you have a clear picture of what you'd like? Perhaps you'd like to talk through some ideas?

With your input, I’ll create a bespoke piece of Chinese art that’s perfect for your space, and that will make you smile each time you see it.

A truly special gift

If you would like to commission a piece of Chinese art to celebrate a new home, a birth, a marriage or anniversary, I can advise on an appropriate image, or wording for beautiful Chinese calligraphy.

To give you some inspiration, here are some traditional subjects in Chinese art:

    • plum blossom - represents perseverance and rejuvenation 
    • orchid flower - represents virtue and purity, the spirit of spring
    • bamboo - symbolises strength and peace 
    • chrysanthemum - an autumn flower, represents moral strength and cheerfulness in the face of adversity
    • peonies, wisteria and magnolia can all represent the beauty of a woman
    • peach or lotus flowers with mandarin birds, or a pair of carp fish, to celebrate a marriage or anniversary
    • pine tree: symbolism of gentlemen, representing virtues of self-discipline and fortitude. If with white crane, then adding the wish of longevity on top of it. 

A creative 60th birthday present

Did you know that in Chinese culture, your birthday is celebrated when you have lived a full cycle of 'jiazi' - the 60-year lunar calendar?

There are many options for calligraphy to express good wishes, as well as images, such as a pine tree, peach tree or a crane.  

I'd love to create a piece of art for you
