"It’s been almost a year now since I moved into my new flat and all my walls were desperately white and empty.
That is until I came across Lilly. I saw a painting behind her on a Zoom call and really loved it.
We hopped on a call and before I new it I had commissioned her for three paintings.
It’s the first time I commissioned someone to do a painting for me, let alone three, so I was a bit nervous as I wasn’t sure how to express what I wanted nor how she would be able to translate that into the paintings I wanted in my living room. I had no reason at all to worry as Lilly makes the process really easy by regularly sending pictures of the progression she was making which allowed us to fine tune and course correct as and if needed. The result is amazing I can’t get enough of looking at them. They match beautiful with the colours of my living room and one of them is the first thing one sees when entering the room.
Thank you so much Lilly, I love your work."
"We have never commissioned anything before but Lilly made the whole process (during a pandemic) very easy. We had an idea but not a firm image of what we wanted. Lilly asked a lot of questions, showed us examples and we ended up with exactly what we wanted even if we did not know it at the time.
We commissioned this picture for our bedroom but in the end felt it would be better in our dinning room where more of our friends and family can appreciate it.
We cannot recommend Lilly enough to anybody who is looking for the perfect piece of bespoke and unique artwork for that 'empty' space.
Many thanks Lilly and good luck in all your future endeavours."

"When I first saw Lilly’s work l was so impressed, I really like the way she blends her colours together and uses mixed media. At the moment I have two of her works and am looking forward to another in the new year.
Lilly has a great ability to listen to her client and be able to recreate his/her ideas. I am very colour, shape and texture oriented and Lilly managed to articulate my thoughts perfectly.
Lilly’s pictures are bright, colourful and very original, but she also has a great feeling of how her pictures will blend in with interior spaces."
"Lilly’s paintings are full of colour, movement, energy and joy. I am proud to have recently acquired one of her pieces. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it, and know that this is a painting I will never tire of looking at, as it evokes feelings, memories and images. It also sits very beautifully in my conservatory and enhances my contemporary décor. Lilly is a lovely person to communicate with and will spend time talking with you to ensure she understands and honours your needs."
"This piece brings me so much joy. I commissioned Lilly to paint something that encapsulated movement within the earths’ key elements and I absolutely love it.Lilly took a small idea, and turned it into something completely beautiful. I am so pleased I gave her the artistic freedom and control and trusted her with the process. She has an amazing talent for taking concepts and turning them into a visual masterclass that are the perfect complement for any space. I cannot wait to work with Lilly again, not only is she highly professional and kept me updated throughout, she has an incredible talent and her passion, energy and experience really shines through. I am excited to keep working with her and seeing how her career unfolds."
"Great art brings any room to life. I aspire to create spaces that balance symmetry, clean lines and vibrant colour. As a landlord and developer, I have to be mindful of cost and value, though to be able to commission art work to create unique spaces is exciting. Lilly Meikle is a talented emerging artist and a delight to work with. She listened as I articulated my ideas, taste and aspirations; then translated the brief with her creative talent. The results were fantastic. I loved each piece and it was great value too. I would highly recommend working with Lilly. Her work has brought colour, energy and dynamism through a very enjoyable creative process."
"I have always wanted one of Lilly’s bespoke paintings for our flat in Berlin. I showed her a couple of photos of our living room, as I wanted a striking piece that would bring together and highlight certain colours in the space. I am so incredibly happy with the final result, it’s just the most gorgeous, vibrant and eye-catching piece of art, that completely brings our living space to life. Lilly was a delight to work with and I especially enjoyed getting photo updates of the painting process. Just thinking of where to put my next commission!"
"We’d just bought our first house together and wanted a piece of art for our living room. We’re complete art novices but knew we wanted to something to tie the living room together. Lily was a true dream to work with. We sent her pictures of our living room furniture and examples of colours we liked. The art she made from it was perfect. We’re obsessed with our commission and get so many compliments on it! I can’t recommend her highly enough."
"My partner and I have just moved into a beautiful new flat which is bigger than our last place and therefore did not have enough paintings to fill the walls. We love large art pieces and already had one large painting we wanted to hang in the lounge but could not find anything that would compliment it. Lilly was able to make us a beautiful custom piece that used the same colours in such a creative way so that they compliment our other painting beautifully, however without being matchy matchy. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Lilly, she listen to what we wanted and put her own creative spin on it and making suggestions that we wouldn’t have even thought of. She is extremely talented and we are incredibly lucky to have this art work and will cherish it forever!"
"I couldn’t be happier with the absolutely stunning piece of artwork that Lilly created for me. We discussed beforehand exactly what I was looking for and Lilly used that plus her own creative vision to produce something even more beautiful than I could have imagined. She kept me updated throughout the process and allowed me to input my own ideas along the way. Not only is she unbelievably talented but she’s also a wonderful person to work with. I’ve had so many people compliment the piece of art as soon as they’ve seen it on my wall and many who have now inquired into having their own piece of work created by her. I couldn’t recommend Lilly enough - although her artwork speaks for itself!"
"The painting Lilly has done for me is, by far, my favourite feature in my room. Lilly started off by looking at the colours and textures in my room so she could get a really good understanding of the theme of my room. She then also spoke to me about what I was looking for and asked me questions so she could understand my style etc. That was the only information that Lilly needed from me to create the most amazing painting. While the colours are in keeping with my room, I love how she has also created it so it stands out and is a real feature. The painting is all I could have asked for and I adore it. I get compliments every time someone sees it and I couldn’t recommend Lilly and her amazing work enough."
"Working with Lilly on the two commissioned pieces was an absolute pleasure. I sent her a few very rough indicators of colour scheme and style and we had very open and honest conversations throughout the creation process to make sure the final pieces spoke to both my original brief and her innate sense of creativity!"
"Lilly gave some great advice on what colours and styles would work in our space. She also sent us pictures of the work in progress so we could provide input on what we particularly liked. The finished pair of paintings are beautifully intricate, look fantastic in our living room, and can be fitted together in different ways so we could choose which formation of the patterns we liked best. Thank you Lilly!"
"After seeing Lilly’s paintings on my Instagram feed and constantly feeling jealous every time I swiped past one I decided the time had come for me to invest in one myself. Conveniently I had just moved into a new flat and sent Lilly a picture of the space above my sofa where I envisaged the piece would go and left her to work her magic. With full trust she decided the colours and size and did not disappoint. My stunning piece now hangs in my living room and brightens up a grey rainy morning in Manchester every time I look at it. Thanks Lilly!"
"We’re absolutely delighted with the piece Lilly created, it has transformed the room and looks stunning. Lilly’s process is also completely seamless, she kept us updated throughout the project and listened to our feedback. We love the art, thank you Lilly!"
"For a while I had been looking for the perfect abstract painting. A friend had that perfect piece and when I enquired I was given Lilly’s website. I was blown away by Lilly’s designs and thought the idea of having something created uniquely for me was a fabulous idea. I am now the proud owner of such a unique piece of art. Lilly was so helpful and guided me through the whole process and my artwork was hand delivered to me! It brings such vibrancy to my room and is much admired. Lilly is a very talented artist. I just wish I could find room for another! Thank you Lilly!"
"We are absolutely delighted with the painting Lilly has perfectly created for us. We now have a stunning painting in our newly refurbished kitchen that makes the whole room come alive. We love it. Lilly’s painting has been much admired. A Very talented young lady. Well done Lilly and thank you!"
"These paintings were a surprise gift and I love them! They feature in my bedroom now, I love the colours and visuals at play and I get compliments all the time! Thank you Lilly"
"Had an idea for a gift for a friend and Lilly out did herself In exciting the perfect present. Wanted something which perfectly encapsulates the feminine form in all its glory - strength, vulnerability and beauty and she’s honestly made it magical. A truly talented artist, cannot wait to commission something again soon!"
"Lilly has been absolutely fantastic from start to finish . I have visited Morocco many times and was looking for a painting that reminded me of our holidays there. Lilly kept me updated throughout the whole process and was very keen for my input . The end result was a stunning piece of artwork with Moroccan blues ,oranges and flecks of gold . Every time I look at the picture I see something different . Many thanks Lilly."
"It has been such a great experience working with Lilly. What I envisaged in my mind, Lilly created for me. I knew I wanted a black and white piece and from there she has created the most wonderful piece of art. It is simply stunning and a real talking point of my living room now.
Lilly’s process of keeping me informed and showing me each layer as she painted has added to the experience. She is one talented and lovely lady. Thank you Lilly."
"I could not recommend Lilly more, the piece she created for us is simply amazing and exactly what we wanted. Lilly was a joy to work with, she listened to our requirements and kept us updated throughout the process, ensuring we were happy with colours, design and development. The piece is so striking and vibrant and the textures are incredible, I fall in love with it a little more everytime I see it, the photos just don't do it justice. Thank you Lilly, I am over the moon with my art and loved the whole process"
"Lilly, thank you so much for my painting! It is absolutely amazing. I love it so much! It is honestly my favourite gift I have ever received! And my first piece of art that I have ever owned! I am so grateful to Mally for such a thoughtful and generous gift and to you for the amount of time you must have spent creating it. I absolutely adore it! You are really talented! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
"I’m loving my piece. It was a joy to work with Lilly from sending my colour scheme to the finished artwork. Thank you Lilly for keeping me up to date with photos and videos to make sure I was happy as you moved along."
"I’ve always been in awe of Lilly’s creations and I knew I wanted one for my home. I shared with her some of my favourite colours and key items in my home that the painting could easily work with. The final piece is absolutely stunning and I can’t take my eye off it. I’m constantly drawn to it looking at how it is so beautiful and versatile. The whole process was smooth and enjoyable with Lilly providing regular photo updates and the final big reveal."
"We commissioned Lilly to produce a large centrepiece painting for our lounge, and we are absolutely over the moon with the final product. Lilly painted it over 3 months and consulted proactively with us throughout to ensure we were happy with its progress, and that the colours reflected what we were looking for. The result is a stunning abstract image, with a wonderful range of colours and textures. We feel very lucky that Lilly did this painting for us; she is such a talented artist!"
