Commission An Original Print
Is there a place that means something special to you?
I am fascinated by cities and like many people feel a connection with particular places that have significance in my life, I always enjoy hearing customer's stories who have a connection with the places and buildings in my artwork, but if there is another place that means something special to you you can always commission an original art print for yourself or as a gift. Whether it is your home or an iconic public building, I can create an original print for you, carefully drawn by hand, printed to your specifications and signed with certificate of authenticity.
How to commission an original print:
Please email me with the details of the project, if you can, please include a picture, an indication of the size you would like the print to be and whether you would like a colour piece or black & white line drawing to help me create a custom quote for you.
Once the commission is underway you will receive updates draft sketches and a final proof to sign off on before it goes to print. The artwork I create for you will be printed to your size specifications with high quality Giclee print on Hahnemuhle 310 gsm textured paper and can be provided framed or unframed according to your needs. It will be signed and numbered and provided with a certificate of authenticity.
Take a look at my client feedback below and the FAQ for more information or you can get in touch with any further questions.
"We commissioned Kethi to do the three Barbican Towers, one of our favourite architectural icons in London, in a freestyle of her own. Our only specification was the colour and that the towers were in some way connected. Kethi kept us informed throughout the process, sending draft sketches for us to look at, thus ensuring we approve of the direction the work was going into. We were really pleased with the end product and number 1/25 now hangs in a pride place of our apartment! Many thanks to a really talented artist."

Here are some step by step details of the commissioning process once the quote has been created and accepted
• Confirmation of commission
• 50% of fee to be paid
• I send black & white draft/progress sketch
• I send colour proof for sign off
• When signed off the remainder of the fee is paid
• Artwork is printed and signed and framed if specified.
• The print is ready for collection or delivery
What is the cost?
The drawings are made from scratch for the commission, I work out the cost based on the time it takes to create the artwork and then add the costs of materials so to give an accurate price I will create a custom quote for each project based on the above.
If the drawing is very complex then it will take longer to draw the detail and convert to print and therefore cost more, even if you choose a small size or unframed print. In the quote I can tell you the cost for both framed and unframed artwork and different sizes.
