HOW IT WORKS
WHAT TYPES
OF COMMISSIONS
DO YOU DO?

1) Which artistic styles, mediums and subject matter do you work with?

2) How does one go about commissioning you?

What is that process like?

1) Which artistic styles, mediums and subject matter do you work with?

I get this question a lot. Experience has taught me this one is actually two questions in a trench coat. What people are really asking comes down to two main ideas, namely:

The short answers are:  "Many" and "It's easier than you think!" respectively, but let's answer each of these questions in greater depth, starting with the first:

FINE ART, CRAFT, ILLUSTRATION & DESIGN.

I offer commissioned work in a variety of 2D and 3D artforms, such as painting with oil, acrylic, and ink; greyscale, monochrome or full colour drawing, in wet and dry media; illustrative design including digital drawings and vector graphics, surface design (infinitely repeating patterns on fabric/wallpaper) as well as leather carving, burning and painting, murals and more...

My past custom projects include portraiture of people, pets, homes and structures, landscapes, abstracts and even design guides for other artistic projects. I've been commissioned to create scenes and imagery that range from imaginative dreamscapes to objective realism and everything in between. I've made kinetic sculptures as Christmas ornaments, interactive paintings as mural-games on the concrete of a public square, and glazed ceramics with unique illustrations to make one-of-a-kind gifts. In addition to developing new surface pattern (fabric/wallpaper) designs, I've also customized my existing surface patterns to better fit a client's interior design project.

  • Painting

  • Drawing

  • Illustration

  • Murals (indoor / outdoor)

  • Fabric / wallpaper design

  • Digital illustration

  • Vector graphics

  • Transparent backgrounds

  • Designs or concepts for use by other artists & makers (eg tattoos, embroidery, cross-stitch, collaborations)

HOW DO I
COMMISSION AN
ARTWORK?

At the top of this section, I mentioned there were sometimes two meanings to the question "What types of commissions do you do?" Aside from the artforms, styles, etc, people often want to know:

2) How does one go about commissioning you?

What is that process like?

THE COMMISSION PROCESS

ALL COMMISSIONS START BY REACHING OUT or PLACING AN ORDER.

After receiving an order for a standardized "Direct" commission (currently miniature pet portraits only), I create and ship the work according to your order details. Instead of an initial consultation, the 'talk' and 'agree' steps are covered by my item descriptions and policies as well as your purchase choices. For all other commission inquiries, I respond to discuss details and provide a quote. Once we've agreed on the project parameters, I typically take a deposit before getting started. When the work is complete, you'll get an update with photo(s) of the art, along with a bill for any remaining balance and shipping costs. After it's paid off, I send your finished project by mail/courier (or digital transfer in certain cases). ​ Together, client and artist can bring a commission from idea to completion in 5 basic steps.
