Commissioned art work is the ultimate expression of unique art.
Commissions can be a single piece or a set of two or more paintings.

Price is approximately $1/ square inch dependant on your requirements and will be quoted together with payment terms before the commission is started.

The process for ordering custom work is very simple.

Simply contact me at, with brief details of your proposed commission, beginning with your concept. (mood, theme, etc..)
No art degree or fancy language required. Together, we discuss the vision, size, and budget for your piece.

Before I start work on your painting, you'll receive several proofs that we will discuss.

Your own favourite photos can be used to create a custom, beautiful encaustic mixed media painting.

This is a one of a kind image – unique in each and every way.
Every piece produced in my studio is original artwork.

It is as easy as that!

• When do I pay for the custom artwork? How do I pay?

Once we have agreed on the dimensions and price of the piece as specified in the artist-client contract, the artist requests a payment of 40% of the total cost to be paid up front.
This payment is proof of the contract between the artist and the client. The client will pay the balance of the total cost once the portrait is completed and a jpg of it has been sent to the client.
Payment of the balance must be made upon delivery or before shipping to the client.
All payments are made through PayPal or Interac money transfer via email. Debit, Visa and Mastercard are available in person.
