Friends had recommended artists, but I was nervous about commissioning a group portrait without expert advice. Rosie at Fine Art Commissions showed me examples by artists experienced at painting children, and talked me through the options until we found someone whose character and painting style suited us all perfectly.
My father has influenced me greatly in my work and given that it is a relatively strange thing for a sculptor to raise a painter, I thought it could be an interesting father–son project to make portraits of one another at the same time.
