Artistic Vision



DDFC0761-2111-4A51-AB3A-08A67542A54FAre you interested in commissioning a piece of art but have never done so. Where do you begin?
Commissioning art is a fun and unique experience. No matter if you are a first-time art buyer or a seasoned collector, I hope to make the experience fun. If you have an idea for a special artwork, Contact me at the bottom of this page and I will respond within 24 hours.

How much will it cost to commission an artwork? 
Commissioned pieces will be priced based on the size, medium, and complexity of the piece. Commissioned artworks will be more than comparable pieces in the artist’s portfolio [in terms of size and medium]. This is due to the fact that I  will spend time to consult with you about the project, create any necessary preliminary sketches, and take time  from my normal art practice to create your commission.

Do I pay for commissioned artwork before or after the piece is complete? May I return a piece I’ve commissioned?
Before I begin working on your commission, I expect a 50% non-refundable deposit. This assures that I will be paid for my time and materials. I contact you along the process with high resolution images. Once the piece is complete, I will send you the final resolution image of the work. If you accept it, I will charge your credit card the remaining 50% and ship the piece to you or arrange for either pick or local delivery. There are no returns once you take possession of the art.

How long does it take to commission an artwork?
The time will vary depending on the size, medium, and complexity of the piece, and the artist’s schedule, but typically commissions take ten to twelve weeks to complete.

When commissioning an artwork, can I have the artist work from a photo? What if i don’t have a photo for themu to work from?
Photographs are great reference material when commissioning artwork. If you don’t have a photograph, it’s not a problem. You will have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with me to describe exactly what you are looking for.

When commissioning an artwork, what kind of contact will I have with you?
Before the I begin working on your project, we will have a special consultation so you can have the opportunity to explain exactly what you’d like. Once I begin working, I will update you as the piece progresses from initial sketch to finished masterpiece.
