Please contact me with your idea or brief via my contact page to discuss availability and I will send you a custom quote.



Please note that custom Illustrations do not include the original artwork unless you specifically commission Matilda for an original piece up frontDepending on the brief, illustrations are often illustrated separately and assembled digitally so that the artwork remains editable.



All original commissions are painted on high quality 100% cotton, acid-free, paper using high-quality paints. Artwork size can vary – anything from a small 150 x 150mm illustration up to an A3 size.


Larger sizes can definitely be discussed.


Please contact Matilda to discuss your idea and brief and Matilda would send you a custom quote. Every illustration project is different and is therefore quoted based on the complexity of the work as well as size.




Matilda takes great care in each commission she takes on.

She will do a rough sketch of your idea that you can approve before we move forward with the final artwork.

3 -4 Weeks depending on availability.




Matilda does not offer any framing at this stage but would be happy to advise on where you could get your custom artwork framed or where you could purchase beautiful frames if you do not have a frame already.
