Art Commissions

Custom Art for You!

If you’re looking for an Artist to paint custom art for you, I am happy to help! For more than 10 years, I’ve worked with customers to help bring their artistic visions to life through paint and brush! I work locally with customers in the Washington DC and Northern Virginia area, but can also work with you no matter where you are located.

Process and Policies

We begin by discussing your vision for the painting. At this time, we also will agree upon a time-line for completion, which varies depending on the project. For example, a simple small wall mural can be done in one day, while a large complex wall mural will take several days. A portrait painting may take me a month, while a landscape painting might take me a week.

A 50% deposit is required to begin work on the commission. Once started, you will receive at least 3 photo updates of the painting progression, at which point feedback is welcome! It’s very important to offer feedback at this time, if you feel necessary, as changes cannot be made once a painting is completed! Once the painting is complete, the remaining 50% is due and then it will be delivered to you. If needed, payments can be split into more than 2 installments.

Pricing

Below are prices for different kinds of paintings. These prices are subject to adjustments depending on the details of your commission. For portraits, they typically take about the same amount of time regardless of size, so I will typically go with the size you would like. If it happens to be very large (i.e. larger than 18″ x 24″), the price may be higher.

There is a $100 nonrefundable fee applied to creating a concept sketch, if desired (this goes towards the total price of your project).
