WHY COMMISSION A PIECE OF CUSTOM ARTWORK?

UNIQUE

Nobody else will ever own the same piece

PERSONAL

Tell me your memory, and I will bring it to life

MADE TO MEASURE

Together we will consider the space where you intend to display your custom artwork before I begin the design process

PETS | PEOPLE | PLACES

your special memories deserve some space

Some moments only come once in a lifetime...  Your memories may fade, but a custom artwork will endure forever - or at least for many decades.

Let me take your original snapshots and turn them into an heirloom-quality piece of art, worthy of wall space in your home or workspace.

HOW IT WORKS

Current pricing for commissioned custom art starts at $300 for the design work, to include a single subject. The final price will depend on complexity, the size of the piece, and your choice of medium. You can get an idea of media costs by looking in my open print store. Please realize that custom work takes time. Depending on my workload, and the complexity and the amount of research needed, a commission may take up to 6 weeks before delivery.

1

Step One

You contact me with your ideas, and email me your photos (please be sure that you took them, or have the copyright to use them).

2

Step Two

We have a conversation on what you're looking for, including final size and medium.  After that I ask for the design fee as a non-refundable downpayment.  

3

Step Three

Once I understand what you are looking for, I shall do any necessary research and get back to you with my ideas for your input.

4

Step four

When we are both happy with the concept, and the final size and medium, the balance of the payment becomes due and I shall complete the final piece.

5

Step five

Your custom artwork is shipped ready to hang, direct to your address, where you unbox and hang your new wall art.

Step six

Sit back and enjoy your custom art!

size matters

choosing a size for your final piece

When it comes to deciding on the size for your final piece, there are several guidelines available. 

  • On a blank wall the artwork should cover 60-75% of the width. Use the same ratio above a piece of furniture. This can be a single large painting or a gallery wall of smaller pieces spaced 2-4" apart.
  • The perfect distance from which to view a painting is three times its diagonal. If the room is narrow, or on a stairway, you may be better using multiple smaller pieces to make a gallery wall.
  • A painting should be hung with the center 58" from the floor. This is the standard height at which galleries hang art It corresponds to the eye level of the average person.
  • If hanging a picture above a piece of furniture, try to keep a 6-12" gap below the art.
  • Above a fireplace, try to match the width of the fireplace  opening.

Below is a chart giving common furniture pieces and the recommended width of art to be hung above them.


Width of art
Twin Bed
22" - 30"
Queen Bed34" - 45"
King Bed43" - 57"
72" Couch41" - 54"
96" Couch54" - 72"
60" Dining Table34" - 45"

The most common mistake people make is to choose a size that is too small, giving the effect of an island surrounded by a sea of empty space. On the other hand, if you go for broke and use one large piece alongside a narrow passageway you will lose the ability to see the whole picture at once.

Don't worry. We can discuss this topic in more depth when we have our meeting!
