Did you know I’m available for commission work?  I love working with people to create a truly unique and special painting that captures an important moment or place in your life.  Scroll down to see some examples of past commissioned work and to contact me!

  • You will need to send me a quality reference photo to work from.  It should be a good resolution so I can clearly see the details, should have good lighting, and should be a good representation of the person, animal, or place you want depicted.
  • We will agree on the price and the details of the work before I begin and both sign a digital contract.
  • I require half of the fee up front to begin painting.
  • Paintings generally take 3 months from start to ship.
  • Shipping is an additional fee, to be discussed before beginning.
  • I will send a quality photo of the painting before I ship.  You have the opportunity to request one small change at this time, if needed.  When the painting is finished, the balance of the fee is due.
  • The painting will be made on a cradled wood panel.  The sides will be painted gold (unless you request differently) and it will be ready to hang on the wall.  Canvas will be used for larger paintings.
  • Remember that paintings are different than photos- that’s what makes them so special!  I take great care to create an accurate likeness but need you to also be open to the way painting naturally transforms an image.
