Commissions

I accept commissions

  • There are no cost premiums or fees for commissions.  This includes both replicas and new pieces.
  • If you see a piece that you like but it has already sold, I would be happy to make another for you (provided that the materials are available).
  • There is no obligation to buy.  If you aren’t happy with what I’ve created, you don’t have to purchase it.
  • There may be a deposit if the commission contains specific personalizations (names, dates, or other details that make the piece specific to you and only you).

Commissions: New Pieces (non-replicas of previous work)

  • The best way to get exactly what you want is to assemble pictures of your favorite patterns, colors, styles.  This gives me a basis to start my design.
  • Decide on a price range.  This lets me know what type of flexibility I have when designing your piece.  Note:  Do not be intimidated by this.  I love a challenge – which for me means making art as inexpensively as possible.  Telling me you have a budget of $30 is not an insult (Challenge Accepted)!  I will let you know if I think it’s possible to create your piece in that budget.
  • Throughout the process I will send you ‘progress images’ for your approval.  If at any time I deviate from what you’d like, I will change it!
  • When I’m finished, I will send you images of the final piece for your approval.   I will also let you know the final cost (if not previously agreed upon)
    • If approved, I will send you an invoice or set up a custom Etsy listing for you, which ever you’d prefer.
    • If you decide you do not like the final product, I will list it for sale as I would any non-commissioned piece of art.  There is no obligation on the client’s part to purchase.  There are also no “hard feelings” as art is very subjective, something I very much understand.  🙂

Commissions: Replicas (copies of existing work)

  • Let me know what piece you’d like me to copy.  I’ll let you know if I can still acquire the materials used in the original (sometimes I use pieces that were salvaged or on clearance making them next to impossible to find again).
  • Assuming the materials as still available, I will begin work.
  • I will send you progress shots as I will sometimes deviate from the original a bit.  This is especially true of hand sculpted pieces and abstract paintings.  I will try my best to stay as close to the original as possible but this isn’t always possible.
  • When I’m finished, I will send you images of the final piece for your approval. I will also let you know the final cost (if there was a pre-approved change to the original for some reason)
    • If approved, I will send you an invoice or set up a custom Etsy listing for you, which ever you’d prefer.
    • If you decide you do not like the final product, I will list it for sale as I would any non-commissioned piece of art.  There is no obligation on the client’s part to purchase.  There are also no “hard feelings” as art is very subjective, something I very much understand.  🙂
