I love creating custom works.
Like something you see but want a slightly different size, color palette, or something else to make it fit with your space better?
Want to commemorate an important memory or personalize a painting?
then a commission maybe right for you
Some of my most popular custom creations include
Brides & Grooms - an amazing way to commemorate a very special day forever
Bouquets - if a painting of the couple isn't the ideal way to commemorate a wedding, a painting of the bouquet or other details can be a wonderful addition to your home to help remember that happy day
Dancers. The beauty and movement of your very own ballerina.
How it works
Before We Begin
We’ll work together to decide what the piece will be.
If I’ll be working from your source images, you’ll provide at least 3-5+ photos. The more the better! Good lighting in at least one photo is necessary.
I like to find out about the people or person I'm creating the art for and/or the story and significance of the piece. If it's for a first dance piece, I love to know the song so I can listen and use it as inspiration.
Sometimes custom creations are variations on other work of mine, in which case you’ll let me know which paintings you’d like me to draw inspiration from.
I typically share a few sketches at the beginning to make sure it is going in a direction you're happy with, and then a photo in progress, and another as it's close to completion.
You can also wait until the end to be surprised. Sometimes it’s hard for someone who is not accustom to seeing the messy-in-the-middle process to envision the completed painting.
You’ll have the opportunity to request a few minor adjustments at the end.
One month is the minimum timeline, although during busy seasons can be up to 3 months. Rush orders maybe available for an extra fee.
50% is due before starting and the remaining 50% is due upon completion. The initial deposit is not refundable and covers materials and time to create a beautiful, one of a kind creation just for you.
I consult with the happy couple about what they'd like.
20% deposit will secure their place in the schedule.
Friends and family can contact me to make a payment toward the total. I will keep a record of who has contributed for Thank You's.
I will let the bride and groom know when we are fully funded.
If the registry does not get fully funded, we will discuss next steps. The couple may decide to go with a less expensive or smaller option, or they may opt to pay the balance either in one payment or multiple payments.
