I am a creator at heart. Oftentimes, creation, for me comes in the form of painting and one thing I found I have a talent for is taking someones idea or an image in their head and turning it into a product. To see a sample of some of my work and get a feel for my style, click here.
What is Commissioned Artwork?
Commissioned work is any art that is done upon request of service. You, as the purchaser, come to the artist with an idea or product request and they fulfill that request.
What makes you different in terms of commissions?
Each artist does commissions a bit differently. Some are amazing at recreating photos as paintings or digitally turning your dog into a noble knight - which, as an aside, is super entertaining! Some can do portraits of you or a loved one. All of these can be amazing and have a very specific purpose the fulfill. I, am NOT that artist. I will not paint you a realistic portrait of your children. I won't create a watercolor painting of your dog. I know amazing artists who do this thing and they are great at it - I will happily get you connected!
But I will do is go down a journey with you to uncover what is behind your ideas, layer your experience with feelings, memories, and sensations that will translate to a one of a kind piece that captures your essence within the piece. It is a truly therapeutic and engaging process as we will co-create an idea that I will put into a visual representation. It is about unlocking your vision and celebrating your unique perspective and view of the world. This is my favorite way to create and allows the piece to go much deeper than, in my opinion, and other type of piece ever will.
I usually require a minimum of 8-weeks turn-around time for any commissioned work. If you are paying me to help you create something special for you or a loved one, I want to be sure to take my time on it so we can be sure it is just right. But, we all know, things come up unexpectedly and if you are looking to get a product in less than 8 weeks, contact me and we will see what we can figure out. Please note rushed deliveries may have an additional charge.
