let us create together
I want to paint your life journey, your dreams and your treasured memories.
Your personal life journey is an infinite well of inspiration. Each commission piece is an invitation to tell your story.
I am the hand that tells it through ink and layers of paint but the story is your own.
Yes, I love your old, faded, well-cherished, but rarely seen images documenting the important milestones and intimate everyday family histories. Show me your childhood home, favourite city view or a grandfather’s armchair, street corner where you met your destiny or a family heirloom and I will create an original semi-abstract artwork that celebrates and honours your personal story.
As a collector, it is your chance to be a part of the creative process and bring to life something that will be personal and meaningful to you.
where to start
Let's talk and find the right reference images to create an abstract painting that tells your story.
Here the collector commissioned a piece of art to remind him of South Africa - the country where he grew up. He chose photographs of the South African landscape and wild lions as a point of departure. Above, you can see stages of work in progress and the final result.
You like my artwork style and colour palette.
You want to tell a visual story that is unique to you.
You want to add something engaging and evocative to a room in your home.
You like a particular artwork that is already sold or is not the right size.
You want to be part of the process of creating a bespoke work of art.
All you have to do is get in touch.
We discuss your ideas, wishes and requirements, then agree on the timeline, size and budget.
30% deposit is taken upon agreement to proceed with the commission. I will send images of work in progress, to give you the opportunity to make suggestions during the creation of your artwork.
Once completed I will provide high-resolution images and a video for you to see the painting. A studio visit can also be arranged.
You would then pay the outstanding amount and the artwork is securely packaged and shipped with a courier.
Cancellations: In those exceptional circumstances when you don't feel like the artwork is quite in line with your expectations, I will refund the deposit and the painting goes into the open market for sale.

Marc and Suzanne Brenner, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, USA:
"While I’m just a novice art collector, my wife has a keen understanding of art, having worked at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for 18 years. We saw Anna Sudbina’s The Library on Singulart and both fell in love with it. We immediately wanted to purchase the painting, but the space we had in mind really called for a larger piece. So we contacted Anna and asked her if she could revise the work to fit the space we needed. She agreed, and began the process, even going so far as to send us photos and video of the progress she was making. When we received the final piece and hung it on the wall, it was absolutely perfect! It now has become one of our favorite pieces of art in our possession. Thank you Anna!"

Suzanne O’Donovan, Somerset, UK:
“I came across Anna’s work online and loved the texture and softness of the paint technique alongside the defined linear ink lines. I had been looking for something for our living room and so, commissioned Anna to do a piece for above our mantle. I’m so pleased with the results - without being too ‘matchy’ it perfectly complements the fireplace, and the rest of the room. This was my first ever art commission - so I was a little nervous but Anna kept in touch throughout and both the work and delivery were very prompt, and I have something beautiful to gaze at from my sofa! I’d have no hesitation commissioning Anna again or recommending her.”

Dr Steven Harris, London, UK:
"Having known Anna as a friend for many years and coming from a family of artists myself, I’ve always been struck by her natural talent and unique style of painting.Her forms, shapes and use of colour are extraordinary and captivating on an emotional level.When I moved into my new home, it was only a matter of time until I asked her to do some paintings for me (just purchased my third one!)Anna was able to take some general guidelines to put together some pieces which have really brought the rooms in my house to life with moving, colourful and vibrant pieces.Really I can not recommend her enough."

Recently commissioned artwork
The artwork commissioned for the head office of Ebony And Co, a luxury flooring company, to celebrate its journey of 20 years incorporates the city skylines of New York, London and Moscow, the flag of the Province of Limburg and more organic wood textures.
A Dance Of Two Cities, an artwork that features the two significant cities in the collector's life - Amsterdam and Saint Petersburg, using a soft pastel yet happy colour palette that complements the interior design of their living room.
Artwork that follows the collector's life journey includes urban locations of the four cities: New Delhi, Los Angeles, Sydney, and London as well as a selection of personal objects and references.
Marc and Suzanne loved an existing painting The Library but needed a larger canvas and a different width to height ratio for their wall. You can read their testimonial above.
Here we worked closely with an interior designer to create a calming artwork for the collector's bedroom to complement the colour scheme of the room.
The collector chose two existing artworks and decided to combine the elements in one painting. We also took into consideration the proportions of the space above the fireplace mantel and the mood of the living room.
A portrait of Frizzi.
Named after vino frizante, she equally enjoys nature walks and cafe terraces. The portrait captures her bubbly character within the abstracted setting of Innsbruck and Turin.
"We love it and couldn't think of a more beautiful way to capture our little family member."
The collector wanted to have an abstract piece that would remind him of Hong Kong. We agreed the colour palette and incorporated the city's skyline and architectural elements of HK airport designed by Norman Foster.
