I'd to create a custom work of art for you! It is truly an honor to create something that will become a treasured part of your home.
Here's how it works:
You may send me a commission request at any time. You can start with a photo, a color palette, or a general idea--I'm happy to advise on what will work best for a painting!
I will choose all commissions by the first of each month for the following month. For example, commissions placed by March 1 will be delivered in April.
I will likely finalize all November AND December commissions by October 1 because those are my busiest months of the year. Consider contacting me as early as possible if you'd like a commission by Christmas!
To inquire about a commission, please contact me or email me at email@example.com.

What will you paint as a commission?
Looking through the work on my site and on Instagram is a great way to get a sense of my style and what I like to paint! I often paint flowers, people, landscapes and seascapes, pets, houses, food, and treasured objects.
You don't have to start with a perfect photo. In fact, what makes an interesting painting is very different from what makes a good photo. Perfect lighting and smiling faces looking at the camera make great photos, but I'd rather paint dramatic dappled sunlight and people in movement. For house portraits, consider a candid shot versus the real estate photo--it can have much more personality and depth!
You can even send me a video to work from!
I don't currently do traditional portrait paintings, i.e. a posed person facing forwards. I also can't paint a photo that's held in copyright by someone else. If you know who the photographer is, you may ask permission to use it.
Can you incorporate colors from my decor?
Yes! You can send me photos, or even mail me fabric and paint samples, to make sure your painting is perfect for your space.
What size do I need?
It depends on the image and the space where the art will live. If you send me a photo of your space, I can advise on size.
The subject of your painting will also determine the size. For example, a 4" x 4" painting will fit a single flower or a single pet, but not a vast landscape! It's good to have a size in mind, but be open to a different size based on what I think will work for your image.
I'm an interior designer. Do you offer an industry discount?
I'd love to work with you! Please contact me for professional partnerships.
What do I do now?
Send me a message! No matter where you are in the process, I'm happy to chat about what you want and answer questions.
Even if you're just considering a commission for the future, we can talk about ideas so that you can keep your eyes open for inspiration.
