Commission Artwork

Commission Artwork Process

Commission ArtworkI believe it is an exciting opportunity to create commission artwork for individuals, groups, small businesses and organizations. My intentions in accepting commission artwork is for the manner to be professionally gratifying for me as an artist and satisfying for those who have chosen to integrate my artistic style in to their living or professional work space.

I price my work using a formula that factors in the dimensions of the work, the costliness of the materials, and labor hours – intensity of the techniques and processes that will be employed in creating the work.

Please note that an up – front Non-Refundable fee is charged for all projects. When a client chooses to move forward with the design, the full amount of the fee is applied toward the list cost of the project; should a client choose not to move forward with the design after receiving the initial sketch and/or outline design, the up-front fee is retained as compensation for my time in developing the artistic concept.

In addition, once a design has been approved, I require a Non-refundable fee of 30% of the list cost as material fees before production begins. Should a client refuse the finished artwork, the 30% material fee is retained to cover the cost of materials and time spent creating the artwork.

**I would please ask that you review my galleries and see if there is a piece/style that is a good representation for you personally and your next project.

Custom commission artwork outside of the scope of standard project layouts below shall be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. My personal suggestion before you start any art commission with an artist is to review the artist’s body of work, get a sense for the artistic style and make sure it is a good fit for you.
