commissions

How Does It Work?

Contact me via email or drop by my studio at Lowe Mill. I’ll need to see your photo(s) in order to give you a quote. Once you agree to the quote and sign a contract, 30% of the total is due initially to reserve your spot on my work list. Commissions take approximately 4 weeks to complete, depending on my schedule and the size and complexity of your piece.

I focus primarily on animals and botanicals, but I am open to other subjects. I work from photos, so you nor your pet nor your bouquet have to sit for a portrait.

Works can be mounted on birch board and varnished for a finished piece that doesn’t have to be framed OR works can be left unmounted so that you can use a traditional frame.
