My favorite art commissions are the ones where I get to blend the person (or people) into the painting, and I don’t mean their faces (I charge extra for portraits), I mean who they are. Their favorite colors, places, movies, books, or inside jokes—-maybe a few of these blended together!
I want to make something that’s just for you. Or your family. Or your birthday-having friend. Or some other folks who are getting married. But, something just for you/them specifically. Something sure to incite a “That’s so YOU.”
I have my bachelor’s degree in fine art and have been in around 20 shows spanning the left states. I have worked professionally as an artist for over ten years. Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions, even if you just have a very vague idea of what you want–I’m happy to chat about it. (Check out my Etsy shop for inspiration and pricing examples.)
How it works: You’ll tell me what you have in mind, and I’ll ask lots of questions. I’ll prepare an estimate, and if it’s too high we’ll talk about ways to decrease time (money) to make the project work for your budget. After that’s agreed upon, half of the estimate is due as a deposit. The other half is due upon pickup if local. $50 minimum for PDX art commissions, and $100 for those that need to be mailed, generally.
