COMMISSIONS QUE: OPEN (booking for late August)

Read below to learn more about what I can offer, the commission process, and pricing; when you're ready, please fill out this form to submit your commission request! 

What I Can Offer

Vibrant, semi-realistic re-envisionings of natural concepts 

  • bright colours amongst an extensive colour palette
  • high contrast of lights and darks
  • mixing thick textures with soft blends

While I'm not limited to this list, my strongest works and previous commissions often fall under the following:  

  • nature: greenery, florals, trees
  • landscapes: mountains, beaches, snow, fields
  • elements: water/waves, rain, light
  • skies: clouds, sunsets, galaxies, moons/planets, space
  • animals: dogs, cats, birds 

To ensure I'm the right artist for you, I always recommend checking out my Instagram to get an idea of my personal style and capabilities as an artist.

Please kindly seek another artist if the focus of your piece is any of the following:

  • detailed human portrait
  • scientifically accurate animal
  • detailed architecture or vehicles
  • recreations of copyrighted works and other IP

Pricing

Current Base Price: $170 CAD
for canvases sized 10 x 10 and smaller, shipping not included

Artwork is very personal and something which I can't price based on canvas size or general subject matter alone. I value my projects individually, taking time to understand what each client is looking for and ensuring the price fairly reflects my devotion of time and labour to creating their custom piece. 

Cost Breakdown

There's a lot more that goes into pricing a project aside from 'time spent painting'. I want to ensure your entire ordering process is a positive and memorable experience from start to finish - it should be a special and stress-free journey to have a custom piece of art made just for you! Consideration of the costs broken down below make this possible.

Although exact amounts differ from project to project, here's what I account for when pricing a commissioned piece: 

Consultation

Prompt email responses, design/layout comprehension and completion 

Supplies

Canvas, paint, other custom mediums

Studio Overhead

Equipment (easel, brushes, lighting), website and admin fees, technology upkeep

Packaging

Experience
