COMMISSIONS

Commissions are currently closed.

I am currently focusing my energy on learning to tattoo, and am not able to take on fine art commissions. Please sign up for my art mailing list if you'd like to be notified about commissions re-opening. If you are interested in a custom tattoo, please sign up for my tattoo mailing list for booking updates. Please note that I am no longer accepting tattoo design commissions for others to tattoo.

Commission Types

Black and White Pen Drawings

These drawings will be done with black fineliner pen on paper. I’m open to most kinds of nature-based imagery for this commission type - mountains, landscapes, animals, plants, flowers, insects, etc. Available in any dimensions up to about 6"x9". Sizing refers to the approximate drawing size, the actual paper will be a bit bigger (for example, a 6"x8" drawing will be on approximately 8"x10" paper).

Stylized Mountain Paintings

These paintings are stylized mountain landscapes made with matte acrylics and paint pen on paper. Let me know what kind of color palette you want, and if there are any specific elements you want to be included, and I will create an imaginary mountain scene for you. I’m also open to depicting specific mountains or places, but they will be done in a very simplified, abstract style similar to the examples provided. Available in any dimensions up to about 8"x10". Sizing refers to the painted area; all paintings are made with a half-inch unpainted border (meaning a 4”x6” painting will be done on a 5”x7” piece of paper).

Signature Landscapes

These are my more realistic landscape paintings depicting real-life locations, with a mandala in the sky. These paintings are made with a combination of acrylics and pens, and are done on paper mounted to cradled wood panel approximately ¾” thick. The painting will be sealed and finished with a satin varnish to protect it against UV light, dirt, moisture, and other elements. I can frame your painting in a wood float frame for an additional charge, or install hanging hardware for unframed display at no additional charge. For dimensions other than the ones listed, please ask me about availability.

Because of the time commitment involved with these paintings, I will be very selective in the landscapes that I accept. I am most interested in painting large rock formations, mountains that are steep and rocky, and popular climbing destinations. I am less interested in painting foliage-covered mountains or relatively flat landscapes. Some places that I would love to paint for this commission type include Joshua Tree, Smith Rock, the Tetons, Squamish, the Dolomites, Zion, and Moab.

The Process

To start the process, please e-mail me your proposal with as much as information as possible about what you would like. This includes commission type, size, imagery, colors, and any additional preferences you have. If you’re not sure, that’s okay, just let me know what elements are most important to you and where you’re open to suggestions, and I can help you figure out what will work best with your idea.

If you have any reference photos, please attach or link them in your email. References to my own work are especially helpful in letting me know how you would like your commission to look! If your concept is something I am willing to take on, and when I feel I have a good idea of what your commission will entail, I’ll provide you with a quote and ask for a deposit.

After receiving your deposit, I'll create a rough pencil sketch and send you a photo. I’ll then make a more refined sketch based on your feedback to the initial sketch. I’ll send you a photo of this second sketch to make sure we are on the same page, and then start the final piece upon your approval. If your piece is in color, I will provide a color palette, color study, and/or color reference for you to review before I begin. Once I put pen and/or paint to paper on the final it can be very difficult for me to make changes to the design, so please bring up any concerns you may have during the sketch phase!

When the artwork is completed, I'll send a photo to make sure you're happy with it, and ship it to you after receiving final payment plus shipping costs. Shipping is free for works on paper shipped in the United States. I put a lot of time and energy into every piece of art that I create, and I appreciate your patience while I work on your art. If you have a strict deadline like a wedding or birthday that you need to have your commission completed by, please let me know at the beginning!

Pricing

The price for your commission will be based on multiple factors including size, media, style, design complexity, etc. The base prices given above for each commission type will give you an idea of what to expect, but be aware that your price may be higher depending on the detail and complexity of your concept. My minimum for custom work is $150.

Your quote is based on what we discuss during the proposal phase, and my process outlined above. Adding elements not discussed during the proposal, requesting extra edits during the sketch phase, or requesting changes after I've begun the final piece may increase the total price. If you make a request that will increase the quoted price, I’ll let you know before executing it.

Deposits + Cancellations

I ask for a non-refundable deposit of $100 - $200, depending on commission size and type, before beginning your commission. If you are unhappy with the finished product or no longer want the commission at any point in the process, you may cancel the commission, in which case I keep the art and your deposit. If at any point in the process I try to communicate with you and don’t hear back within 14 days, I will assume you no longer want the art and your commission will be cancelled. Artwork from cancelled commissions may be altered and/or sold to another buyer.
