What is a commission?

A commission is a piece of artwork that is created upon request. Commissions make great gifts for those special people in your life and are truly a wonderful way to give a personalized present.

Commissioning a Piece

How does it work?

Essentially, you are asking to have a custom piece of artwork created in my style. You can browse my collections or take a peek at my Instagram to get a feel for my unique flare.

Producing a work of art on commission is a relationship—a partnership between you and I. Like any relationship, we need to make sure that this is the right fit for both of us.

When you commission a piece

What do you get?

~ Drafts/mockups for you to give feedback on (depending on the complexity of the commission there might be fewer or more drafts)

~ Final sketch that you must accept before we continue

~ Insight and involvement in the color plan 

~ The completed work of art either on its own, in a window mat, or fully framed

There are two scenarios, really ⁠

How do you decide a commission is right for you?

You’ve looked through my Instagram feed or the products in my store and find a piece that you really love, only to be devastated that it has already been sold!

No worries, we can have a little chat about what aspects of that piece put a spell on you and come up with a similar concept. The piece won’t be made exactly the same, though, as all of my pieces are unique so that you can say the work of art is one of a kind.⁠

Or you have a wicked idea floating around in your brain that you can't imaging in anyone's style except mine.

In either case, you will fill out the commission request form below. This kicks things off with some basic information so I can decide if I am a good fit to make your dreams come true!

Based on the information you provide,

 I may decide it is pertinent to schedule a virtual meeting so that we can talk at length with each other about what it is you are dreaming of and if I am the right person to create it for you. If this is the case, we will set up a time and method of contact via email. 
Once I approve our partnership, I will send you the terms of service (see a sample of the terms agreement here) with information about payments, process, and delivery, etc. This will need to be signed and the initial payment made before we can make magic. (See below for information about deposits.)
With all the formal stuff out of the way, the fun can truly begin!
Recreating an existing piece requires little preparation and I can work my witchcraft immediately. But, if we are creating something from scratch, I would start by doing some concept sketches. I typically do 2-4 minimal detail drafts to bring to you for your opinion. ⁠
⁠Once I’ve gotten some feedback from you, I typically do another round of sketching, one or two, and bring them to you for approval. ⁠
⁠After we’ve decided on a concept sketch, then we talk about size and I give you a price estimate.

Before the real work begins

A deposit is made

If your commission is being created from a concept you proposed, a $50 deposit is made after the request has been approved and before I begin to work on sketching your piece.

The final price of a commission is determined after we have worked out the details. Once all sketches have been approved and we have agreed on a size, I can give you a price estimate from which a 50% down payment is made. After the deposit has been made and production begins, there are no refunds of these initial payments if you decide to cancel your order. The remaining 50% is paid once I have completed your one of a kind work of art.
