Commissioning a painting is a wonderful way to acquire artwork for your specific needs : to decorate your home, an office, a restaurant, as a wedding gift or a birthday present.
Steven has worked with patrons throughout Europe and the USA to provide original acrylic and watercolour paintings that suit their budgets and size requirements.
When a client commissions a painting, whether it is a landscape, an animal painting or a portrait, it provides a unique opportunity to interact with the artist, by contributing to the creative process, and by watching an idea develop into a unique original artwork.

“I know I am lucky to have a wife who thinks up personal and original ideas for gifts, but she will be hard pushed to beat this year’s birthday present she gave to me.
For this year, I was presented with a stunning commissioned painting by the wonderfully talented Mr Steven Christian Reed.
I have long been a fan of Steven’s work, and commented some time ago that I believed he could capture the power and spirit of the surf very well. – I was correct and I have the evidence hanging on my living room wall to prove it!
Thank you so much, it is by far the best present I have ever received – we will enjoy it for years to come”.

“Edwards view of the world”
acrylic on paper
“Having seen the lovely painting that Steven did of his small son playing in the puddles, I asked him if he could do a sketch of my 2yr old grandson, Edward.
I am so pleased with the result. Steven has captured the moment beautifully. I’m sure this painting will be treasured by both his parents, and Edward himself as he grows up.”
