If there is any magic in my work I believe it is born when I get to that place where I can let go of expectation and judgement and just create. This can be a tricky place to get to when I am creating something specific for another person, so I like to always mention that while your piece will be made especially for you I still ask for the freedom necessary to get to that magic place.
So what will you have control over? You will decide size and orientation of canvas/paper. We will talk about colors you love and colors you hate. You’ll tell me where you think the painting will live and what you hope to feel when you look at it. I also really love for clients to share with me something they’d like me to focus on while I paint. Maybe you’ve just fallen in love, maybe you’ve just lost someone, maybe you are expecting a new baby, or maybe you are celebrating moving into a new home. I think allowing me to focus on whatever is “up” for you In your life can turn your painting into more than just decor, it becomes a momento of this time in your life and you’ll be able to remember those feelings whenever you look at it.
I ask for 50% of the total fee to begin the process. This will act as a non-refundable deposit and will go toward the final bill.
Please note: I think my best work comes out when I feel like I have the freedom to create what I feel connected to. If you are looking for someone to create a very specific idea or would like to have a lot of control over the painting process, I might not be the best fit for you and that is totally ok!
I offer commissions on canvas and if you have a smaller budget I also offer commissions on paper.
