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.
