So, how does a commission work?

It’s a lot of fun! The timeline to commission an original artwork takes a couple of months from start to end. It begins with establishing some key requirements for your painting such as size, colour, subject etc. Once a concept has been agreed upon, I will take a 50% payment as a deposit in order to purchase materials and allocate some of the hours that will be used for painting.

You will get the opportunity to provide feedback during the process to ensure that it is what you are expecting.

The painting will will be signed, sealed and ready for shipment to you in 1-2 months (all this will be discussed at the order stage), ready to hang in your home.


Fill out the form below and let’s start the conversation.

Complete the form without obligation to purchase. I’ll send you some FAQs and more information about the process.
