Do you have a specific vision that you would like to see transformed into an original work of art? I would be happy to make that dream come to life for you.

Please send me an email with the all details of your project including (but not limited to):

  • subject
  • medium
  • size
  • desired colors
  • a jpg file attached (high resolution if possible)

I appreciate as many details as you would like to share about your preferences because it will help me fully understand your vision. I’m happy to take requests to work in a specific style or medium, as long as it corresponds to the way I normally work. For an idea of my artistic style, please check out my portfolio pages or my flickr page. I am open to any idea you may have, but if I’m not able to accommodate your specific request, I will let you know before I begin work.

Please understand that to avoid copyright violations, I can only work from photos that you have taken yourself and that you grant me the right to use. Also, please know that it will be easier for me to create an accurate image if I receive a high quality photograph to use as a reference.

Pricing is based on many factors including the complexity of the subject matter, size, medium and shipping considerations. Once we have agreed on all the details, I require a non refundable deposit of one third the total cost before I begin work on your project. Once the work is complete and I receive your final approval, I require the remaining two thirds to be paid and clear the bank before shipment. I accept PayPal or money orders.

I will take special care to ship the work as securely as possible. If the artwork fits onto my scanner, I will also email you a high resolution jpg file for your personal use. Your satisfaction always remains my highest priority.

When you commission a piece of artwork from me, you must agree to allow me to republish the image online and on other promotional material. However, I will never sell prints or other reproductions of your image.
