Thank you for considering commissioning an original painting! Here's some info for you:

Each piece is painted with the utmost care and attention to detail on a high quality gallery-wrapped stretched canvas. The painting will continue over the edges of the canvas so your piece will be suitable for hanging without framing. A hang wire is included-- your painting will be ready to hang right away!

All commissioned work typically takes a maximum of 3 - 4 weeks.

If a longer time frame is projected due to high volume, you will be notified promptly. Portrait paintings require a digital source photo to begin.


A 50% non-refundable deposit is due before work will begin. The other 50% is paid upon your acceptance of its completion.  Shipping is included for sizes 12" x 16" and smaller. If a shipping charge is required, an estimated amount is added to the balance payment.

Other sizes are certainly welcomed and will be priced according to the basic guideline above.

Get started: please click the box below & fill out a short form. I will respond within 1-2 days.

Special Circumstances:

  • I am happy to offer payment plans. However, even if paid in increments, I will not be able to begin work until the full 50% deposit is received.

  • For certain events and causes, I will offer reduced rates.

  • Commissioned illustration, and/or design work is priced based on the projected size of the job. My hourly rate is $35.
