The Process

1  |  Discovery

Submit a request with your information here. I'll connect with you via phone, email or both to understand your needs, including size and artwork type. We'll discuss design ideas and I'll have you send me any photos you would like used or incorporated. 

2  |  Pricing, Contract & Deposit

You receive an estimate and contract based on your request. If everything looks good, you sign the contract and pay a deposit.

3  |  Design

Leveraging what we discussed in the Discovery phase, I'll put together a design(s) for you to provide feedback on and make revisions. The amount of designs you receive and the amount of revisions included in your pricing is provided in your Contract, as well as your Invoice. Once everyone has agreed on the design, you'll approve it and I'll begin the work. 

4  |  Create

I'll create your artwork based upon the agreed upon design. 

5  |  Final Payment & Shipping

Once the artwork is finished you'll get the option to see it before it is shipped. If you don't want to see it and/or be surprised, you can select not to receive a photo. You'll receive an invoice for the final payment and shipping expenses. Once the payment is received, your completed artwork will be shipped for you to enjoy!

Fine Art FAQs

What types of artwork do you offer?

I offer customized fine art in a variety of mediums such as graphite, charcoal, pastels and/or acylic paint. Each medium offers its own unique characteristics and aesthetic appeal. You can choose the aesthetic you like or we can work together to determine what best suits your preferences and desired outcome. 

Can I commission artwork in a specific style or subject matter?

Yes, absolutely! I specialize in working closely with clients to bring their artistic vision to life. Whether you prefer realistic portraits or stylized illustrations, I can create custom artwork in a style and subject matter of your choice. Your input and preferences are integral to the commissioning process, ensuring that the final artwork reflects your vision and personal taste.

How long does it take to complete?

The timeframe for completing commissioned artwork depends on factors such as the size, complexity, and medium of the artwork, as well as my current projects and availability. I will provide you with a realistic timeline based on your specific project requirements and communicate updates throughout the process. If you need the artwork by a certain timeline (e.g. gifting, holidays, etc.), we will discuss that in the Discovery phase. If you need the artwork expedited, please note that additional charges may incur. 

Can I request revisions or modifications to the artwork?

Yes, I welcome feedback and collaboration throughout the design process to ensure that the artwork meets your expectations. You are welcome to request revisions or modifications to the artwork within reason, and I will do my best to accommodate your preferences. Minor adjustments are typically included and outlined in the contract, while significant changes or requests received after the agreed upon design, may incur additional charges. 

Do you provide framing or display options?

At this time, I do not offer framing or display options directly, but can provide recommendations and guidance based on your preferences and budget. 

Do you offer shipping?

Yes, I offer shipping both domestically and internationally. I take great care in packaging and protecting the artwork to ensure its safety. Shipping costs and delivery times vary depending on the size, weight, and destination of the artwork, and I will provide you with detailed shipping options and estimates based on your preferences. Shipping costs are covered by the client and included in your final invoice for payment. 

Do you offer prints?

Yes. For some of my artwork, multiple size prints are available. Please contact me if you are interested in ordering a print of any of my artwork
