How to commission an artist with the Gardens gallery

Gardens Gallery Commissions

Can’t quite find the perfect piece for that awkward space above the fireplace?

Looking for a portrait of your beloved pooch?

Or maybe an artwork has already caught your eye, but it’s not quite the right size or colour.

Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered with Gardens Gallery commissions.

How does it work

Set your budget, describe what you want and set a completion date.

Contact your chosen artist will then accept your offer or contact you  to further discuss your requirements.

Once accepted, you pay the deposit to get ball rolling and when you’re happy with the final piece, you pay the remainder.

Frequently asked questions

How can I commission an art work?

You’ll see a ‘Commission artwork’ button on the storefront and artwork listings of any artist that takes commissions. Don’t see that button? You’re welcome to get in touch with the artist directly to see if they’re open to commissions. Just click the ‘Contact’ button on their store.

How do I pay for a commissioned artwork?

Once an artist has agreed to take on your commission, a member of Artfinder’s commissions team will be in touch via email to take a non-refundable deposit. This deposit is 30 – 50% of the final artwork value, as agreed between yourself and the artist.

Your chosen artist will then start work on your artwork and you will pay the balance when the artwork is finished.

How can I check the progress of my commissioned artwork?

Your artist will be in touch with regular photos and updates via Artfinder’s messaging system.



Can I return a commissioned artwork?

Unfortunately we do not accept returns of commissioned artworks.

How much will it cost?

That’s up to you and the artist! You set your budget when you first commission the artist via the initial contact form and the artist will liaise with you to reach a fair price.

How long will it take?

Again, that’s up to you and the artist. You can stipulate a deadline when you first commission the artist via the initial contact form.

What can I commission?

Anything you like! Whether it’s a portrait of your dog, an abstract to fill that empty space above your fireplace, or an artwork similar to one that you have seen elsewhere. Be sure to give the artist a clear idea of your requirements – you can even upload and send photos to give them a better idea.
