Commissioning an Artwork
If you’re looking for that finishing touch or statement piece to complete your surrounding, we can help you!
We often find that our clients have specific size, colour palette and/or subject requirements that they desire in an artwork that is outside of works currently available. In these instances we recommend the option for a commissioned piece where we work closely with the client from an initial conceptual idea through to a completed project that fits perfectly into their environment.
The creative process – What to expect
First of all, we would arrange to meet with you to view the space and discuss your ideas, colours and options for suitable artworks, or if due to distance you can simply email images to us of the space you have in mind. This helps us in providing a selection of ideas and/or concepts that may achieve the desired look you are after. Once an agreed concept is in place your artwork is thoughtfully created, while at the same time we will keep you up to date with the creative process via email. You are also welcome to arrange a time for a studio visit to view the work in progress, however, we have found some clients prefer not to view the work until it is completed.
A commissioned work can take from 4-12 weeks for completion, depending on size and complexity.
“With the completion of our new Childcare Centre at Tuggerah, we wanted an original artwork to complement the environment and provide a focal point of interest to staff, parents and children who enter the centre. I was looking for an artist who could create a piece of art that spoke of the value we place on each child and Educator. Robyn is an artist who not only is very gifted but also is able to catch the heart of the environment in which the art will be displayed and express it through her art.
We appreciated the professionalism, enthusiasm and creativity with which Robyn Pedley handled the project. The response we have had to ‘Joy’s Garden’ has been overwhelmingly positive and we are so glad to have chosen to work with Robyn.”

“We had wanted a special artwork or two for our home on the Coast and had been looking around for a while at various artist’s works. When we met Robyn at the gallery we talked about ideas and looked at some of her work and felt we connected with her style. We found her easy to work with and were more than happy with the two landscapes she created for us and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others.”

“We had been visiting galleries in the region for a few months looking for an original artwork. As soon as we walked into Bobbie P Gallery we knew we had found the artist and style we were looking for. Robyn and Darren were very welcoming and happy to spend time to engage with us and discuss her artwork, style and the option of a commissioned artwork.
After visiting our home to get a sense of space, scale and colours, and discussing our ideas, Robyn prepared concept sketches and invited us to progress viewings while the artwork was being created. We were happy with the timing and communication throughout the whole project and extremely happy with the completed artwork. Darren happily delivered and hung the artwork for us, and we are still amazed at the depth and richness of the painting in the changing light from morning to night.
Robyn is a passionate artist who is friendly, knowledgeable and professional.”

The clients, while visiting Australia popped into the gallery and were moved by Robyn’s artwork. A portrait was commissioned with the birth of their first child and to portray the love between mother and daughter.
“We wanted to celebrate the birth of our first baby and felt that commissioning a painting of mother and child would be very appropriate. From the studio sitting including sketching and photographic shoot, Robyn selected an image to work with (we loved the black and white photo images too!) We were kept up-to-date with the progress, the portrait was finished on time and captured the moment so beautifully that we’ll be back for our next baby.”

With this commission we included the children in the creative process, towards the end of the project they were invited in to add some finishing touches which was really special along with being a whole lot of fun too!
