So You've Decided You Want A Painting that is unique to you. Awesome! Here's how it works...

1. Size Matters!

Commission prices are based largely on the size of the painting and how complex it is. The more complex, the longer it takes and the price is adjusted to include that.

What you need to do: If you have a known location you'd like to hang your piece, measure the space within that area. Make sure you leave enough room for a frame if you'd like one.

2. Refer to my previous works

If you already have a theme or focus in mind, let me know! Although I'm not a mind reader, I'll do my best to bring your ideas to life through my unique style.

If you don't have anything in mind and you're happy to just let me go for it, then that's fantastic too.

While you're looking through my previous works, decide on a colour palette used in an existing piece.

What you need to do: Decide on what you'd like included in your painting. Decide on a colour palette and reference the painting(s) you like the colours in.

3. It's time to talk

Give me a call or send me an email and we can set up an appointment to hash out the details. I'll need to know your preferred size, content and colour scheme. It's also worth mentioning your budget for this project.

What happens next?

I'll come up with a basic sketch to show the content of your painting. At this time I'll be able to give you a more accurate quote. I'll also be able to let you know the timeline you can expect it to be completed.

Heads up! I'm NOT a fast painter, but good things come to those who wait!

Once the sketch is finalised and the cost is agreed on, I require a 50% down payment to begin.

Once I have started your painting you will just have to trust me with it. Previous experience has told me that if I send updates along the way I can lose the flow of the piece because I'm second guessing what you may or may not want, which often shows up in the work and I don't want to give you anything less than a spectacular painting!

Once the painting is complete, we can talk framing options (at an additional cost).

Easy peasey lemon squeezie!
