Commissioned Artworks

2017 - Richard Whitney, CEO, Mercy Hospital, Dunedin, New Zealand "With the recent development of our new ‘state of the art’ Day Stay facility Manaaki by Mercy, the opportunity to commission dedicated pieces, reflecting our connection to our local community and environment, was placed in the safe hands of the talented Sam Foley. He did not disappoint- with 3 visually stunning and admired pieces now proudly at home in Manaaki. Recognising the visual, emotional and therapeutic power and benefit of artwork, for both our patients and staff, a key component of how we wish to present our facilities will always include it’s careful consideration.

2017 - Nerida Aylott, Sydney, Australia "I commissioned a painting from Sam Foley and the whole experience was entirely pleasant and professional. Sam understood from the outset what I was after, but was at pains to listen to me and deliver what I wanted. He took time to get the composition just right and kept me updated throughout the painting process so there was no chance things could go off track. Having said that Sam is such a experienced painter that at no stage did I have any worries, nor need to give much input beyond the ideal delivery date. I was surprised by how seamless the experience was, and we now have an absolutely beautiful painting on our wall."

2017 - Nick Ormrod and Stephanie Bishop, Wellington, New Zealand "Normally you view a piece of art upon completion. This was our first commissioned work and Sam included us in the creation. We watched the scenery emerge. We have a richer connection with it and a story to share with friends and family, not to mention a fantastic piece of art we will cherish for years to come."
