Commissions

If you are interested in commissioning me to paint your next work of art, please use the contact form below to reach out and we can get started.

Here's a synopsis of the commission process...
 
Currently, my timeline is about 4-6 months out right now. It’s possible that I can squeeze it in before then but I tend to be very booked up with shows and other commissions and like to be conservative when giving people lead times. And if you really need it sooner I will try to work with you on that. 
 
Please be sure to share with me as much about what you're wanting in a painting. What subject are you interested in? I typically paint florals, botanicals, still lifes  waterlilies, and abstracts. Sometimes I paint landscapes but I do not paint portraits of people or pets. What colors would you like to be predominant? Sharing photos of the space or sending in samples of paint swatches or fabrics or specific colors brands of wall paint colors is very helpful. It’s also helpful if you have a particular painting of mine that you like so I can get an idea of what you like.
 
Here is my portfolio of most of my paintings... simply click on the particular painting you're interested in viewing and you'll be able to see it clearly...
 
 
I usually create a general palette or sketch out a composition before I go to town. Before the paint dries we can make small adjustments as long as we do it before the paint starts to dry. Usually the thin layers of paint start to dry within a day or so. My paintings vary in texture and thickness so the thicker areas take longer. I usually wait at least a month to ship. Once it’s ready to ship I will notify you.
 
Payment depends on the size of the painting.  Sizes range from 12x12 to 60x72.  To start the project and to get on my list I will send you an invoice for a 50% deposit. Then once the painting is complete, dry, and ready to ship I will invoice you for the final payment plus any shipping costs or framing costs if you’d like for me to frame it.
 
I can have canvases framed in traditional gallery floater frames in either gold leaf, silver leaf, white, black, or natural. Prices depend on size. If you are undecided about framing you can think about it and let me know later. 
 
Shipping is calculated at the end of the project and is based on the size of the painting, whether or not it is framed, and delivery address. If framed it will be shipped in a wooden crate. My studio is located in North Wilkesboro NC and can accommodate local pickup. I travel to Asheville NC, Raleigh NC or Charlotte NC, usually every month or two and can arrange delivery to these locations as well. 
 
Again, thank you so much for your interest.  I look forward to hearing from you!
