Step 1. Start by contacting me at

Step 2. In your message describe what you would like me to create. Be as specific as possible, take some time to consider the answers to the following questions:

  • Framed or unframed?
  • What size drawing do you want? (I suggest no smaller than 16 x 20)
  • What subject do you want in your artwork?
  • What colors do you want in your artwork?
  • Are you looking to stay in a certain price range/budget?
  • What is your deadline? (size and complexity will effect timing)

Step 3. Pricing - is dependent on the size and complexity of the piece along with your choice of material and framing.

Step 4. Our Contract - After the initial email I like to have a discussion with my clients where we go over the specific details of the artwork. Once we negotiate the terms/details of your commission, I will e-mail you a contract outlining all that we have discussed for your approval.

Step 5. Down Payment - There is a non-refundable down payment of 50% before I begin work on your drawing.

Step 6. Painting - Once we have discussed the details you want in the drawing, your commission will be scheduled into my calendar. Once work has begun it can take up to 4 -6 weeks to complete. (rush orders are possible but may cost extra).

Step 7. Final Product - Once your artwork is complete we will arrange delivery and final payment.
