Commissions

I am available to create a custom artwork for you. This can be done either from a photo from you, or with that choice left up to me to achieve the mood, subject or idea that you would like. I am happy to be in communication with you along the process of the painting's creation, which may begin with sketches or initial photographs, to make sure that the custom painting is one that you'll be happy with. I am comfortable working with a variety of ideas and themes. Continue reading below to learn the stories behind some commissioned works.

This painting was done for personal family gift in memorial of a young boy.

This painting, originally envisioned as a diptych but separated in the end, was commissioned with the desire of creating a large and bright experience of happiness.

The painting below was a very personal project as well. It was made in memorial for a beloved student in the spirit of my mother, her piano teacher.

Please let me know if you might be interested in a custom artwork and I would be happy to discuss different options with you with no commitment necessary. Additionally (and this is the case for my other works as well), I like to offer the possibility of splitting a cost into a couple of checks that are spaced out, to help the cost of a work be less of an imposition on you if that would be a great factor in your decision.

Other details:

  • All the options below are framed, mounted and ready to hang. Only 100% archival and lightfast materials are used. For long term preservation, oil paintings are additionally varnished with an eggshell or satin finish, and colored pencil paintings and graphite drawings are protectively sealed with a transparent, matte or satin finish fixative. Optionally, a mat and/or plexiglass or glass layer can be added to a drawing for extra safety/presentation.
  • I usually choose an eggshell-finish, black wood frame because it tends to look good with many colors and styles of work, as well as home decoration. However, many options for frame widths, styles and colors (or none, if you'd rather do it yourself) are available- just let me know if you prefer something else.
  • If you want, you can let me know a particular existing piece of mine whose general mood you'd think the commission should be similar to.
  • I'm primarily an oil painter but I also work with other mediums. Please let me know if you'd like to see samples of any of the types of piece below, or if you're interested in something which is different from the list below either by way of size or of medium.
