The Centre, Livingston, 2021
How do you commission an artwork?
Some people might find this a tricky or daunting thing to do. Clearly outline the process and the cost upfront is helpful to both the Client and the Artist.
So, here's how it works. If you see something here that looks like it could translate beautifully into a wedding gift, a housewarming present, a special birthday surprise or a gift for yourself for your flat/house/mansion/hotel then the first thing you need to do is get in touch. You can email me directly at CassandraHarrisonArt@gmail.com.
To date, I have created commission pieces for Deciem, Modern Standard Coffee, The Centre mall in Livingston, EGG (Edinburgh Gossip Girls), wedding invitations (venue), anniversaries (churches), house portraits (family home), First Flat But We're Moving And We Want To Take A Bit Of Something About It With Us (various flats in various cities), specific requests for specific streets (one above) and so on. I can colour match the decor or use your favourite colours but at the end of the process, your piece will be very much in keeping within my style.

After initial contact I will promptly respond with an overview of my schedule and when I could fit in the project. This could be in a few weeks or possibly a few months as there are certain times of the year that are busier than others. Also, some of my commissions are large projects and can take a few months to complete.
I will draw up a contract so that we both understand the project requirements (colours, subject, timescale for sketches, completed work, payments). This is best practice and also ensures we are all on the same page.
Should you wish to commission an artwork from an artist, be sure you both know the process, costs and timescales before proceeding.
Three prints for Modern Standard Coffee, Barclay Terrace, Edinburgh. This is the artwork that also appears on their customer information leaflets and store cards.
The Deciem piece was commissioned for the Deciem's new shop opening in Edinburgh. I was asked to create an illustration for Press and VIP customers for the store launch. I also was the entertainment for the launch night as I painted the image in store.
The above artwork was made for a holiday lettings business owner.
