Get the painting you've always wanted!

Do you have a vision?

Do you feel like you already know what your special painting would look like but you just can't find it out there. If the style that I use to create my art speaks to you, and you feel like your vision and my vision would be a wonderful fit, then a custom painting might be the answer.

I've created many special paintings for many special folks, maybe you could be one of those special folks too!! : )

Here are some photos of just a few of the sketches/paintings that I've created as custom paintings...

I'm always pleased to take on commission paintings where we can work together with you to make a custom work of art that is suited just for you.

If you know what you'd like in your painting and would like to discuss details about the project please book a consultation.

When you contact me about having a custom work of art created, together we first determine exactly what you would like to have in the painting.

Before contacting me think about what size (prices above), colors, and elements you’d like to have in the painting. Also, think about the budget you have available for the project.

If you're new to the idea of commissioning a painting, be sure to get the, 'HOW TO GET A CUSTOM PAINTING GUIDE' (coming soon) This step by step guide will help you figure out what you need to know first in order to get a custom painting.

I'll create a price quote based on the information you’ve given me, I’ll also include a shipping estimate so you’ll have an idea of what the final commitment will be.

Using the information you've given me I’ll then create a sketch. I can use anything from written descriptions, photos, my own paintings, or even your own drawings as a point of departure. This webpage has a few photos of sketches and the final paintings so you can see what this would look like.

I’ll email the final sketch to you. If the sketch needs revision, we continue the process until the sketch reflects an ideal composition that we’re both happy with.

At this point, we finalize the details in writing and I’ll require the deposit to purchase materials in order to begin the painting. This deposit is non-refundable so please be sure that you are committed to the project.

I’ll create the painting and then send you photos of the completed piece. If you’re happy with the final artwork we’ll then proceed to the final payment and shipping.

Once shipped, I'll contact you with all the shipment tracking info.

Finally, your unique original painting arrives at your home and you hang it up and enjoy!!! : )
