We commissioned Fliss to paint our adult children, each independently, and from life sittings, as she doesn’t usually work from photographs.

We are thrilled with the results for ‘Laurie’ and ‘Ian’. The likenesses she gained are incredible, and her style of working is lively and expressive too. Due to Fliss’ flexibility, our children were able to fit in their sittings around their own personal commitments, which is essential in today’s fast pace busy lives.

During the commissions we were updated with messages and images of work in progress, which was very reassuring. She welcomed our input and comments too. Both of my children commented on how enjoyable the experience was, and how Fliss had put them at their ease, and been good company too!

We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Fliss Watts as a commissioning artist.

When I commissioned portraits of my two children, Fliss was very patient and kind. They both thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I now own two lovely paintings that I hope will be enjoyed for years to come.
