– Meet Virtually or In-Person
– What are the benefits of the commission process? Great question!
Uniquely yours: When I create a commission piece for you, I will not reproduce the painting as prints (or in any form, aside from sharing it on social media, which I hope you will do too). The artwork will be exclusively yours, to enjoy in your home or business.
Personalized: We’ll work together (either in person or online) to come up with the perfect size and colors for your home or business. You don’t have to consider yourself a “creative person” to take part in this, and I love working with other artists if you are.
Fun: Clients often share with me how much fun the commission process is for them. Working together to create the perfect piece for your home is exciting, and when you finally get to see it in your home, it’s such a wonderful feeling!
How Does it Work?
1. We meet in-person or online to take a look at your space and to decide together what size piece will be a good fit. We’ll take some time to look at artworks that I’ve created in the past so you can share with me the colors and style that you like the best.
2. After coming up with a vision for your piece, I will begin work by creating a small test piece with the colors we’ve chosen. Once we both approve the colors, I will start working on your unique piece.
3. Commissioned artworks generally take me 6-weeks to complete, depending on the size and scope of the project. Once your masterpiece is complete and ready to travel to you, I will send you photos for final approval and deliver or ship your artwork out to you.
Deposit: A 50% deposit on your custom commissioned artwork is due before our initial meeting with the remainder due before shipping or delivery. *Quoted prices for commissions do not include shipping costs or multiple revisions in style or colors.
A piece of my heart tied with yours on your wall.
A highly unique creative experience just for YOU!
We have only some control about what happens to us in this life, but we can control how we handle it, and what comes next. Remember when you were a child, and you were asked what you wanted to be when you grew up? There were no boundaries there. You may have wanted to be Superman, the President of the United States of America, or an astronaut. At some point, we decided that those things weren’t reasonable, or possible, and we put ourselves into cages that are hard to break free of. In my artwork, I ignore those self-imposed boundaries and just create for the childlike wonder of creating. For a moment there, I’m free of the constraints that I’ve put on myself, and I believe that anything is possible. Adding creativity to my life has been incredibly transformative for me. It came on out of the blue. I never even considered painting until one day I did, and I have grown in so many ways. I’m a very different person now then I was when I started. More confident, braver and more self-aware. Art is the one thing that makes me brave enough to take risks that I would never have even considered before. The rush that you get when you create something is so beautiful and addictive, so I kept on experimenting and learning. You never know if that new thing that you’ve been thinking about trying might totally change you, so don’t hesitate and go for it
A big part of being an artist for me is fighting fear. Fear of a blank canvas. Fear that I’m not good enough and people will hate my work. That whisper that says “what the &$&&@ do you think you’re doing?” I’m the kind of person that never makes a decision without spending a ridiculous amount of time thinking about every possible outcome and scenario. The kind of person who makes the waiter come back to the table three times because I still can’t decide what to get for dinner. Sometimes this anxiety can be paralyzing. The fluid acrylics that I work in do not allow this fear. The experimental process that I engage in cannot be a fearful one. It’s therapeutic for me, to make such rash decisions, because sometimes they end up being awesome (to be fair, sometimes they don’t). I’m finding that the more afraid I am of doing something, the more important it is to do it. We’re all afraid of something, and we’re all just trying to connect and make sense of this crazy world. So I see fear as a beacon, guiding me in the direction that my soul needs to follow. The scarier and more uncomfortable the better.
