It's a special thing to have one-of-a-kind art crafted for specific people and spaces. Unlike buying art that's already made, a commission is an exchange of trust and collaboration. My goal is *always* to make something that you'll be proud to hang, something that will stand the test of time. So with that, here are some things to know.
Commissions are more expensive than buying art I've already made. Why? Because of the brainstorming, creative planning, and back-and-forth conversations required—all of which ensure we're on the same page and that you end up with something you adore. For each surface type (paper, canvas) I price by the square inch, with shipping included in that price. Here's an example of how it works:
20"x14" x 1.2 (commission fee) = $336
26"x26" x 1.5 (commission fee) = $1014
If you so choose, canvas paintings can be finished off with a light, natural pine floater frame that's built and stained here in house for an additional $100. For paper pieces, I work with local professional framers and price will be determined by size and the kind of frame you request. In this case, most collectors choose a simple, clean white frame to complement the minimalist nature of my paper paintings.
I require 50% down. This non-refundable amount covers my time and materials. Once the final piece is approved, you pay the other 50%. Then, I ship!
That was a lot. But now's the fun part—you get to fill me in on your vision. Let's start with the form below. This'll help me come prepped for a discussion and gives you the opportunity to reflect over what it is you want. Once received, I'll contact you and we'll dive in together.
