I believe art is part of a process of healing and closure. Art offers you the gift to relive special times and bring dreams to life.
Fine art presents opportunities to share stories. My images are designed to honor memories, facilitate closure, encourage new aspirations, and celebrate life.
Creating commissioned art gives you the opportunity to realize your vision. All the materials I use are archival and lightfast to ensure your art will last a lifetime and beyond. Your custom artwork will become an heirloom treasured for generations.
Your ideas are where we start. Use the Inspiration Worksheet to help design your art. It will provide you with considerations of various elements for your commission. There’s no need to for you to make any decisions at this point; you’re still exploring concepts.
The next step is coordination. We begin by discussing what you envision and your inspirations. You’re encouraged to tell stories, share photos, and include anything else you feel touches your heart. This might take a few calls until we’re able to develop a Photoshop image approximating your composition.
For an example of what the process looked like for Rich Memories, download the Rich Memories Worksheet.
Once you approve your concept of elements, colors, composition, and size, you’ll send an initial installment payment. If I have a waiting list, that will hold your place. And then, I’ll let you know as soon as I begin drawing. From the time I start your project, you should allow 3 months for completion and framing. If you have a shorter timeline, check with me regarding my schedule, and I’ll see what I can do.
Artwork commission pricing is based on size, medium, and the complexity of the subject. However, please keep in mind that to ensure likenesses, details are important. This means that we don’t want to squeeze a lot of subjects into a tiny space. We can discuss your options during our initial video conference call.
Below are general prices for colored pencil based on a single subject. All artwork is delivered professionally framed.
Prices subject to change.

Your artwork will include a certificate of authenticity. You may pick up the artwork in person in Virginia. If this is not possible, I can arrange for your piece to be carefully packaged and shipped to you for an additional charge.
Please contact me to discuss pricing for multiple subjects, complex backgrounds, other sizes, etc.
