Process
Commissioned Work   Be patient! It takes at least 12 weeks to complete an original.
Once you send your deposit, I will contact you by email to obtain any photographs of the subject and your phone number. We can discuss the timelines and ideas on how you might want the painting rendered. Once these details are worked out, I will draft an agreement and ask you to sign. The agreement will include a payment schedule based on achieved milestones. There will be 3 milestones:
1. The painting has a basic layout, design and large color blocks have been rendered. Your deposit will be applied to this milestone and is no longer refundable.
2. The painting is completed and is resting before framing.
3. The painting is matted, varnished, framed and mounted ready to hang. You cannot take possesion of the painting until the last payment is made.
One third of the total price will be requested by invoice at each milestone and is non-refundable.
Although you may commision a painting, only I can authorize any copies of the original or its likeness, unless you purchase the copyright.
Giclee Prints   Using pigment inks, on a high quality canvas. Takes 4 weeks.
Regular or Enhanced Prints: Giclee prints may not always be immediately available. Generally prints will be sent within 4 weeks after I receive your deposit and mailing coordinates.
Custom Framing    For paintings that are not my own. Preference given to repeat customers.
You must provide a photo of the art piece you wish to have framed and the outer dimensions. The corners of the artwork must be completely square (i.e. 90 degree angle). I will then provide, either by email or on this website, images of frames for your selection. I can mount the painting in its frame, if you are in the Ottawa region. Otherwise, the finished frame will be sent to you by mail and you will need to mount the painting yourself.
