I work closely with all my clients so that I am able to accomplish exactly what is requested. starting the process is easy. If you are interested in a commissioned piece you can begin by filling out the form on the contact page. At that time, I will review your request and will contact you through the requested method provided. Early communication on expectations will be addressed with the client before any work is started (i.e. subject matter, size, and color scheme, etc).
When submitting a Commission inquiry, think about the following:
- Size of the completed painting
- Reference Photos - with good lighting (if you are not sure, send anyway)
- Time Frame - Expected 1 - 1.5 months from start to finish (oil dry time)
Common questions I like to ask potential clients when requesting a commission:
"How do you want the art to make you feel? Calm, Happy, energetic? Should it be a conversation starter?"
"Can you describe the space where it will live? What color are the walls? How is the lighting?"
"Which of my past works are you drawn to? What interests you compositionally and palette wise?"
Also, be sure to check out my FAQ page for more information. The most common question I receive from online visitors is related to cost. I have included a chart below for your review.
If you have any questions, please do reach out to me. I will reply as soon as I can.
