Clova Stuart-Hamilton often works to commission and will consider proposals of any size in most media.

These might include the following: watercolour, gouache, oil, distemper, pen and ink, pencil and mixed media.

Due to the extensive range of her work, she is able to tackle most genres whether Still life, Figures, Landscape or Architecture.

Often commissions are seasonally linked 

Magnolia blooming beyond a sitting room window
A garden vista with the lavender at its peak
A canal-side house and surrounding landscape in high summer
A college chapel in warm autumn light
A Still-life or interior with a row of hyacinths or freshly cut lilac


Clova always works from life – and, if it is not possible to do a large piece of work in situ, she works from drawings and colour studies.
