Corporate commissions undertaken, invite Babbs Shakir to create a dynamic working environment for your business. With Art, you can promote the company image, create an aesthetically pleasing atmosphere to receive visitors and staff alike and increase business opportunities by creating mood more conducive to success. Any business, whether it be a large corporation or a small family concern, can benefit from a dynamic atmosphere to work and do business in.

Private commissions are welcome. If you wish have that "one of a kind painting", unique piece of artwork or a series of related paintings or drawings, commission Babbs Shakir to create them to your full specifications, requirements and taste.

Buy Art directly from the Artist and make savings on your purchase of Original Art by avoiding gallery fees, taxes and other hidden costs.

I aspire to make the commission process run as smoothly as possible for both artist and client. I deliver professional customer service throughout the process, communication is imperative to this end and I welcome client contact with questions, queries and concerns.

Step 1 - Consultation where client requirements are discussed. Details such as theme, style, medium, substrate and scale are identified. If you wish to provide me with good quality reference material to work from, I will be happy to use it.

Step 2 - No-obligation quotation and a completion date are worked out and supplied to the client. Upon acceptance, a non-refundable deposit of 40% of the total cost of the artwork is required before work can commence.

Step 3 - Work in progress will be relayed to the client, via digital images in regular e-mails, for approval and agreement. Upon completion a digital image of finished artwork will be e-mailed to the client to make sure it meets with client requirements and the client is happy with the results.

Step 4 - Balance of payment is now requested. The artwork will be packaged with care and dispatched as soon as payment is received and cleared.

My aim is to actualize client expectations, however, perception is an individual thing and if the painting I produce does not match the image in your mind's eye or does not meet with your requirements, then there is no obligation on your part to continue with the purchase. In this event, you will forfeit the deposit that you paid to commission the work.
