Thank you for your interest in hiring me to do a commission piece! At this time, I am accepting commissions of people portraits and still life compositions. All commissioned pieces are created from a photo reference. Finished pieces will be completed with at least 75% colored pencil, but they may include a small percentage of watercolor, pastel, or other media. If you are local to northeast Ohio, I can photograph the reference myself or you can e-mail me a high resolution image of the subject matter you’d like to have drawn. If you have an idea of the type of still life you’d like to have commissioned but are not local and do not already have a photo reference, I can within reason photograph the subject matter as well. Examples of this would include a still life of apples in a bowl or flowers in a vase.
Prices below do not include shipping costs or custom framing. All commissions are created on professional artist paper that is mounted on acid-free, museum quality archival board.
Commissions take two to eight weeks to complete, depending on my current workload and the complexity of the subject matter. A 50% retainer is required before I can start work on your commission, and the remaining amount plus shipping fees will be required before I can ship the finished piece. You may pay by cash, check, or Paypal. In order to hire me for a commission, you must agree to allow me to use your commission piece for my portfolio, advertisements, and any art competitions that permit digital images of artwork.
