Your Art. Customized for You.
I would be pleased to work with you to develop art specifically for you or your client's space. Whether this is original art, reproductions, photographic prints, or digital art, we can decide upon the right art for the room, keeping in mind your needs, desires, available space, and even colour palette.
I am currently accepting bookings for painted portraits of all kinds: land, home, pets, people, and meaningful things. I limit the number of commissions I take on to ensure I can dedicate adequate attention to each client project.
I prefer to work from my own experience and images, yet am happy to consider using your images, particularly for posthumous portraits.
If you like photographs and digital art, we can work on something specifically relevant for you, or from my stocks of existing images - even tweaking colour to suit your decor.
This is where I will get to know what you want. We will start to talk about the subject matter, sizing, resource materials, and possible photography sessions. If this will be for a gift, I'd like to learn what you believe will be important to express in the art for the recipient of your gift.
Based on the consultation and resource materials, I will create a digital or hand-made sketch(es) to give you a general idea of the direction I would head. As appropriate, I can show you different size options in your space for your preferred option. We can discuss framing options, too.
Creation & Delivery
I will use the sketch(es) as a starting point, leaving room for creative flow in the work. I will give you an opportunity for viewing and minor tweaks before finalizing the piece. When your art is dry (typically 4 to 6 weeks for oil paintings), I can deliver and hang the art for you, ship it to your door, or you can pick it up at my studio.
