Private commissions are for personal & non-commercial use only. Please send me a description of your idea along with the commssion type you're interested in. I will reply with a quote estimate within a few business days.

Payment is via PayPal or Artistree, a secure commissioning platform which also plants a tree🌱 for every commission you receive through their site!

Artistree is my preferred payment method, though please note a small fee is added to plant your tree🌱

Artistree accepts both PayPal & Venmo.

Commission Process Info & FAQ's

Below is general info & FAQ's about the commission process. My full Terms of Service can be viewed here.

Please read them before entering into a commission agreement with me.

Process during inquiries

  • I'll reply to your message with an exact quote. If you confirm the quote works for you, I will let you know an estimated start date. If the starting date works for you, I will ask if you would like to reserve your slot.
  • Reserving is not required, but it will add priority for when I begin your project. It allows me to guarantee I will start your project by the estimated start date. Otherwise, I cannot guarantee I will be available during the future date.
  • Slots can only be reserved in advance after a deposit has been sent. This is generally at least 1/2 of the full quote, and negotiable depending on the scope of your project.

Process during painting

Payment Plans

  • Payment can be made 1/2 at the start and 1/2 upon completion, or all up-front. I start working after I receive the first payment.
  • Whichever payment option you choose, payment is not required until I'm ready to start on your painting. You are likewise free to send it anytime before then - whichever works best for your schedule.
