Thank you so very much again, for being a pleasure to work with, for including me in the process at critical junctures, and for completing the magical piece.

Commission a portrait

Emily is really pleased to take on commissions of all sizes and complexity. 

Studies are constructed from pieces of different coloured silk organza.The multiple layers and pieces of organza are arranged to create a subtle textile collage, which is then tacked together before being hand stitched  to a medium weight linen. 

  • Emily works from photographs, she can either take the photographs to work from, or use your pictures. Once she has a set of pictures, together you can choose the best one for the project.
  • Emily will then lay up the portrait with a fabric colour palette and meet with you to discuss all the options. When the composition and colours are agreed upon Emily  will start stitching.
  • Depending on your availability for meetings a small portrait will take 6-8 weeks, on completion Emily will  meet with you to check you are happy and make any minor changes before framing.
  • The price will depend on the size and complexity.
