Annabel Elton – The Commissioning Process

Monday 9th December| 4.30pm

Annabel Elton – Hints and tips on working to commission

Annabel Elton is Head of Commissions at Mall Galleries and specialises in portraiture.  She experienced working as an artist to commission for two years before embarking on her current career via financial PR and small businesses. She first started work at the Mall Galleries in 1984.

With these decades of experience she hopes to be able to impart a useful perspective for artists who undertake, or would like to undertake, commissions. Topics will include: how to present your work to attract the portraits you want, things to think about when calculating fees, how to be a good commissioned artist, who calls the shots, and seeing a portrait for the first time from the client’s perspective.

9th December
