Commissions are OPEN for Summer 2020!

Hey friends and art lovers!


It's that time of year again, where I open up my Summer Commission to draw and paint your beautiful faces!

I am only able to accept a handful of commissions this summer and am already booking up. So if you've always wanted to commemorate a special person in your life, or you want to celebrate yourself (like Deanna in the image below did #breastcancersurvivor)

If you want to reserve your spot this summer, shoot me a message here.

Where do I start?

A commissioned work of art is a deeply personal collaboration that begins with a conversation, either by e-mail or phone.  Because I believe in the uniqueness and individuality of a single person, one painting/drawing focuses on one individual.  As a general rule, I don't paint group portraits, but would love to create several mini-paintings that could be hung as a group! I work from reference photos, sometimes a batch of several photos.  Not all photos are created equal and I will work with you to determine what photos work best.**

A 50% deposit is required to get started on your drawing/painting, which can be paid using cash, credit, or check, after we've determined a vision for the work.  I create a rough oil sketch and work out the best composition for your painting.  I send progress photos along the way to ensure you are 100% satisfied!  A 2.9% processing fee is req'd for cc purchases.

How long does it take?

Upon receipt of the deposit, commissions take about 8 weeks to complete depending on the size and complexity of a work. I often have a waiting list, so it is suggested to reserve your spot a few months in advance.  As a general rule, smaller works are created faster (8 weeks) and larger works can take much longer.  I work diligently with all clients to keep them abreast of deadlines and give them clear expectations up front. 

How much does it cost?

Drawing (graphite)= $125 // 8" x 10" on paper

Drawing (color) = $250 // 8" x 10" on paper 

Small Painting =  start at $300  // size 5" x 7" 

Medium Painting = start at $500 // size 8" x 10", 8" x 8", 9" x 12", 10" x 10", 11" x 14" 12" x 16"

Large Painting = start at $750 // 18" x 24", 24" x 36" 

If you're interested in a custom or larger size, I'd be happy to send a proposal your way!

I also offer framing services for an additional nominal fee.


Let's make some art!
