Q: What can be customized in commissioned artwork?
A: The short answer is dimensions, colour palette, and general style (based on my prior work).
Size: All artwork 12" x12" or larger are painted on cradled birch panels, which are custom built locally. As such, all sizes are possible.
Colours: The colour palette can be customized. This also includes gold, silver, or copper leaf, iridescent powders, and pearl pigments.
Style: Let me know which pieces of artwork from my portfolio you are most drawn to. This helps in creating artwork with a similar flow. I cannot replicate pieces that I've done in the past, but they can have a similar feel.
Q: How much does a commission cost?
A: Given my demand, and the level of detail, materials, and time I spend on each painting, my current rate for July - Dec 2018 is $165/sq.ft., for any size commission. A 50% deposit is required upon signing the commission agreement before I commence painting. Prices will likely increase for 2019.
Q: Is there a wait time?
A: Yes. I am currently fully booked until January 1, 2019. I schedule commissions as I receive requests, and also leave room to create artwork for my inventory/art shows. Please email me, or fill out request form below to get the process started.
Q: How much does shipping cost?
A: Shipping rates are calculated based on package size, and shipped via courier. I am based out of Calgary, Alberta and deliver locally at no extra charge. Please email me directly for an estimate on international shipping.
Q: Can I see progress shots?
A: Yes! Most of my paintings are between 3-5 layers. I typically send an email with a photo of the painting mid-process and ask for feedback. This is a great opportunity to discuss if you'd like to see any changes. It ensures both parties are on the same page.
