Commissions are now open! Click here to view


Yes! I do take commissions.

But I might do them a little differently than some other artists you've worked with. I only take on commissions that I feel will fit with my current body of work.

Why? Because life is short, and animals, landscapes, and abstracts are what I like to paint right now. I want to enjoy every piece I make and feel proud about the artwork I send out into the world.

But, I am definitely open to ideas, so fill out the form at the bottom of this page and I'll let you know if I think we could work together on an amazing piece of art.

How Commissions Work

  1. First, you fill out the form at the bottom of this page.

  1. You'll let me know about the size you're interested in, colors you might like, and subject matter.

  1. I'll take a good look and let you know if I think I could do a great painting with you ideas, and what it would cost.

  1. If we both think this is going to be an awesome project, I'll send you an invoice for 50% of the project total.

    25% of the project total (half of this payment) is nonrefundable. The other 25% of the project total (the other half of this payment) is refundable if you don't accept the artwork.

  1. Once I get your payment, I'll schedule you on my calendar. Unless I have a big show coming up, commissions will take priority.

  1. When your scheduled time arrives, I'll do a sketch with some color indications for you to approve, or make a further request. This is your time to ask for what you want. I only do revisions during the sketch phase, and generally only 1 set of revisions.

  1. Once you approve the sketch, I'll get started painting!

  1. When it's complete, I'll show you and you'll have two options -
    a. Buy the final painting by paying the remaining 50% and any shipping costs if required. -OR-
    b. Decide not to buy the final painting and request a refund of 25% of the project total price (half of the deposit you already paid). The remaining 25% is nonrefundable.

  1. You painting finds its forever home & you take lots of photos and send to me or tag me :)
