Puschi, Schnuddi, Fusslo and Ta-Zuma by Kim Haskins, 2017
Commissioned painting, acrylic on 12x16" canvas




Commissioned paintings offer a unique and heartfelt experience for both me and the customer, resulting in artwork created with love and understanding that I hope will be enjoyed for many years to come. 


How to commission a painting

I allocate booking slots for commissions over a period of 2 - 4 months, although they fill up very quickly. I first announce when I'm able to take on new commissions via an email sent to the mailing list. When bookings are open, you can request further information which includes a PDF document called Commissioning a painting by Kim Haskins. This contains full details of the commission process and pricelist, and instructions for how to go ahead and book a commission.

16 x 16” deep canvas in off-white flat wooden frame
 Sophie and Minty

Framed cat painting
12 x 12” painting on board inside distressed scoop wooden frame


For paintings on canvas or board over 8 x 12” I provide sketches with annotations in advance which I share with the customer in order to discuss ideas before I commence painting. I provide the original sketches along with the finished artwork (some customers like to frame and hang these).

Signing and dedications

It may go without saying, but I sign every painting. A commissioned artwork is very unique and I am always delighted to make it as personal and special as possible for the recipient. This may mean writing a dedication or specific title on the reverse of the artwork - this can be discussed at any point in the commission process.
