A commissioned piece of art makes for a gift to embody a moment in time or event. I often work on commissions for loved ones and to commemorate an event. I have painted everything from gifts, animals wedding, engagements, to memorials. Each painting is a unique expression of the individual conceived, a truly unique one-of-a-kind piece of art.
Each commissioned piece begins with a discussion with the client as to the event and the individual(s) being painted. I can work from photographs or from life. Due to peoples' hectic schedule, oftentimes it is ideal to work from photographs or to invite me to photograph the subject. In working from photos, it is ideal to send a number of selections. Oftentimes through discussion with the client I am able to help the process of choosing the photo or photos best suited for a piece of art.
All commissioned works are available at whatever size is requested by the client. However, if you are uncertain as to the size/format of your commissioned work, I would be more than happy to help you along the way, adhering to the needs of the subject matter and your budget.
Prices vary dependent on subject matter, size, number of people in the painting, etc. On top of this, there is the cost of shipping and handling if the item needs to be shipped. Please contact me and we can further discuss how I can create an original piece that suits your needs.
All available artwork is rentable to productions both large and small. Please contact me to learn about rates and availability. If you have a specific piece or pieces in mind - please let me know and I'll get back to you about availability and price.
