I craft commissioned paintings, murals,and decorative art. I even created a small film set once. I have done many commissions independently and also spent several years working with various companies creating artwork in a variety of styles, so I am adept and comfortable with just about anything. Besides paintings, I enjoy creating decorations and walls finishes for your home or business and have worked on everything from a bathroom to a movie theater. Take a look around the website to see more samples.
To start the process I confer with you as to the spirit, feel and physical requirements of the projected artwork. A commission contract is drawn up outlining the details of the commission, and a 1/3 deposit is requested with scheduled or final payment(s) at completion.
Though the procedure for each commission varies, for a portrait I generally begin with a photography session and sketches from life. It is also possible to work from existing photography. For a mural or other decorative art I make a design and samples. These are for client review and offer the opportunity to reaffirm consensus and direction. I then create the work. Of course I am willing to travel nationally (or internationally) to complete a commission.
- Pricing and Satisfaction
I guarantee my work and never have had an unhappy client. For each commission prices vary according to size and content. Paintings start at $400 for a 12 x 16 portrait and an indoor wall size mural typically runs about $2 – 4000 depending on complexity. Please contact me for a specific quote.
