Commissions can be a great way to collect a piece of original art that is a best fit for your personal environment.
Here's an overview of how I typically work.
Click the "get started" button below to send a request for a commission.
Based on the information provided, we meet, phone or email for the following:
Getting to know each other.
What you are looking for size and subject wise. (I can create mockups upon request if you are unsure of sizing.)
How you want your piece to make you feel when you walk in the room with your "cuppa" in hand.
How involved or not you want to be in the process.
Any extras you might want to incorporate, like painted edges.
If we decide to proceed, we will settle on the details:
I send a contract with an estimate attached.
We determine the completion date together. Depending on my schedule and scope of the project, this could be 2-6 months out.
Take photos of the space(s) for the expected piece(s) and/or collect colors that you resonate with personally.
The agreement + a 25% non-refundable deposit will secure my time for your project.
During the process:
Friday email updates from the studio (optional)
Studio visit during the ¾ mark to confirm the design and colors are on track. (optional, but is suggested and can be virtual)
If you requested additional input, it will be during this phase.
Final sign off on piece via email or in person, whichever fits your situation.
Studio pickup, or complimentary local delivery or domestic shipment to your home.
Final payment due in full upon pickup or prior to local delivery or shipment.
Receive your Certificate of Authenticity & small gift from me.
Enjoy your special piece(s) in the comfort of your own space.
Up to 14 days after pickup or delivery:
You may return the piece in original condition for a refund of the final payment, minus any shipping fees if applicable.
If you feel inspired, leave a happy review if you love the piece(s) or send a picture of the piece in your space if you are willing to share.
Please do not hesitate to call or email if you have any additional questions.
