Pricing
This will depend on the size of the painting or drawing, what medium I use (oil paint, pastel, watercolour, coloured pencils...) and on the subject. Once this is decided, I will include the shipping fees.

I work from photographs that you can send by email. They have to be of the best quality as possible. In the past, I have used multiple photographs as reference for just one painting or drawing.

I will let you know roughly when the art work will be completed. If you need it to be done by a certain date, please let me know so I can organize myself as I tend to be working on multiple pieces at the same time.

Payment
After you accept the quote, I will ask for half the payment as a non-refundable deposit. The other half will be due upon completion. The commission will be shipped after I have received full payment.
I accept payments by Paypal or by bank transfer.




    During the process, I will send you photos to update you on how your art work is going. If at any point you want something changed, do not hesitate to let me know. I want you to be happy with your commissioned piece.

    Once the art work is completed, I will send you a good quality photo for review. Each piece is signed and dated on the front, and on the back.

    Shipping
    An oil painting will have to be completely dry before shipping, this could take around 1 week after completion. All drawings will be sprayed with a fixative.
    Paintings that are bigger than 100 x 100cm, will be removed from the wooden frame and sent in a rolled tube. As well as all drawings.

    Your painting or drawing will be professionally packaged with great care and insured when shipped. I will provide you with a tracking number.

    If at any point during the process, you have any doubts or enquiries, please feel free to contact me.

    I hope you like you commissioned art work!
