Commissioning Art Originals
Your art is a reflection of your dreams, stories, and memories
If you’ve viewed my available art for sale and still haven’t found the perfect painting, consider commissioning an original artwork created to compliment your unique tastes.
Creative Energy Exchange
Creating original artwork is a unique experience.
Unlike collecting an existing artwork through commissioning a painting, the artist and collector share in a creative energy exchange to create something unique.
In working with me, you are closely involved with creating your original heirloom artwork. We’ll work together to create a representation of what you imagine before I work on the easel.
I will chronicle the artwork’s development along the way and provide a video of the process and your commissioned art evolution.
Once completed, unveiling the awaited artwork can be a memorable experience at your favorite romantic spot or in the privacy of your own home. There are as many variables as your imagination will allow. Either way, it’s about intention, spirit, personal experience, and endless possibilities.
Together, we will capture a moment in time for eternity; an experience often enjoyed as one of the most unique, rewarding, and singularly memorable experiences of a lifetime.
Should you decide to indulge in a memorable experience and create something more intimate, you’ll be the subject of a genuinely original personalized experience and timeless original artwork.
As an artist, I desire to create beautiful art that you will enjoy forever.
Things to consider before we start
• Who or what is the work for? Is it for your home or office? Is it a gift?
• Are there any constraints or special requirements? Think about the work dimensions, space where the work will go, its function, and materials used.
• What are you looking for? What kind of artwork do you like? Do you prefer a particular style?
• What is your budget? Does this include installation and delivery?
Creating a painting that we can all be proud of takes time. Original art creation can take a few weeks to a few months, depending on existing commitments and your artwork’s complexity. Each painting will vary slightly in the steps taken from conception through completion, as each person, situation, and circumstance are unique. Once we get a few details about size and complexity, I can give you a pretty good idea of when an original artwork will be finished and delivered. If time is essential, let me know, and I will consider your timeline.
The original artwork price will vary depending on the piece’s size, medium, and complexity. Please feel free to contact me with any questions through the form below.
I require a deposit of one-third, with the second third due halfway through the painting. The balance is due upon completion. Sales tax and shipping & handling (if applicable) are extra. In the event of cancellation on your part, deposits are non-refundable.
