Commission a Portrait Artist

For over sixteen years (formerly from Walton & Bury St.) we've provided a service to help people commission a portrait and other bespoke works of art. We have stayed at the top through:

  • Representing the best and most consistent portrait artists
  • Understanding the individual needs of our clients
  • Charging the same as if you went direct to a portrait artist's studio
  • Unequalled experience and market insight when dealing with portrait commissions for UK and International Clients
  • Personal back up throughout the project
  • Remaining independent of artists' societies

Portrait commissions include Male Portraits, Female Portraits, Group Portraits, Child Portraits and Portrait Sculpture, along with many other subjects including Copies, Miniature & Posthumous Paintings.

Portrait painters, exclusive to Fine Art Commissions, include Nicola Jane Philipps (Nicky), Charlie Calder-Potts, Rosalie Watkins, Jamie Routley and renowned photographer Fergus Greer.

We also offer corporate portrait & art commissions for offices.

Nicky Philipps: Simon Weston Portrait

Nicky Philipps' most recent commission, her portrait of Simon Weston, was unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery on Thursday 20th March 2014.

Nicky was commissioned by the NPG and BBC for their joint project, the 'People's Portrait'. From a shortlist of 12 well known figures the public were able to vote for the person whose portrait they most wanted to see hanging in the gallery, and this was Simon Weston.

The BBC documented the portrait from the initial meeting of Nicky and Simon, through each 'sitting', to the unveiling of the portrait at the NPG by Fiona Bruce and Dan Snow this morning.

The one hour programme is due to be aired on BBC 1 on Sunday 13th April.

The One Show documented the unveiling of the portrait in a fantastic piece on Thursday 20th March, if you missed it you can catch it on iPlayer by clicking the following link, 21m 40s in:
