Commission a Painting

Commissioning a painting can be a beautiful way to preserve a meaningful place or time in life. Whether ordering for yourself or as a gift, you can select the size and options that work best for you.

Getting Started

Commissions begin with a conversation with the artist. Share whatever ideas you may have for your painting... size, color preferences, deadline, etc. 

If you have a photograph you would like to share, that is a great place to start! If not, don't worry! We can begin by discussing your idea, a favorite painting of mine you love, or the space you want to fill with your new artwork.

Once we agree all the details of your custom order, I will request a 50% deposit from you to confirm your spot. The remaining 50% will be due when the painting is complete.

Your Idea turned into a beautiful painting

Once I have a clear idea of your concept, I will create a plan for your custom painting. The plan consists of a small painting I make to convey the layout, colors, and overall look of the painting. 

I'll send you a photo of the plan and wait for your approval or edits. This is a great opportunity to make sure your desired outcome aligns with my vision for your painting.

Finishing Options

To give your painting a finished look, I paint the edges of the canvas. I typically paint on stretched canvas 1.5" deep. Painting the edges gives a finished look without being framed. 

You can also request a painting be framed. I may also paint the edges when a floating frame is requested in order to create a seamless look. 

Ready to Get Started?

It's easy to get started on your custom painting. Simply email me at with as much information as you have (size, deadline, inspiration photos, etc.). I will respond within a few days with a custom quote. 

Custom orders should be placed at least two months in advance of requested due date. Depending on current commission schedule, orders may take three or more months.
