Thinking about ordering a custom painting for your home?
Let me de-mystify the commission process by answering some common questions I've heard over the years. Deciding to commission a painting should not be scary! I'm here to make sure you can feel confident in your choice and that you will go home with a work of art to cherish. If you do not see the answer to your question here, please contact me at [email protected] and I will be in touch shortly.
What’s it like to commission a custom abstract painting project?
I love working with clients on special projects and gifts. Your custom piece will give you much pleasure for years to come. It's a pretty simple process:
Share your idea with me and we’ll discuss some general specifications, like approximate size and color palette. I welcome color swatches, pictures of your space and any other details you'd like to share so that your commission will be a perfect fit for your home. Once I have a sense of your likes and needs, all other stylistic and aesthetic decisions are based on my usual process.
What comes next?
After we discuss the details by phone, I will email you an invoice/contract which will have the details in writing per our conversation. Once I receive the 25% non-refundable deposit, I will begin your painting.
Why do I require a deposit?
I require a 25% deposit for design time and materials. I want to create the best painting to fit your needs, and will be investing my time to develop the painting you want based on our discussion.
Upon completion, I will send you photos of your lovely custom painting or you are welcome to come see it in person at the studio! We may discuss potential modifications at this time, but remember you are investing in a unique abstract painting in my style and aesthetic, so I do not guarantee that all changes will be possible.
If, however, you ultimately decide the piece does not work for you, you are not committed to purchase. At this point, you may use the non-refundable 25% deposit as a store credit for a painting of a similar size.
Price of your painting
Please refer to my pricing sheet for prices, which are dependent on the medium used. Watercolors and Oil and Cold Wax pieces are more expensive than Acrylic, due to the materials cost and the time needed to produce a painting.
Once we decide on a size, I can get an estimate on shipping costs. If you are in the Tallahassee area you are more than welcome to pick up your original art from my studio.
I will email you a Square invoice that you can pay online using a credit card. 25% deposit will be due upon agreement, and final payment will be due after approval, before delivery. Note: If you live in Florida sales tax will be added.
All sales are final. 100% refund if item(s) arrive damaged during shipping, otherwise no returns.
