Commissions are often requested for a special person and a special occasion. The open intimacy and emotion in these experiences are a joy . To articulate on canvas from another mind, through my hands, is a mighty experience.
For the last 30 years I have created many commissioned works, including wine labels, posters for theatre shows, birthdays, wedding invitations and wedding presents.
Often the commission process is very fluid, how ever I never underestimate the importance of meeting the brief, as one woman’s blue is another man’s purple. Regular updates have the best results for both parties.
Through email and messaging, I am able to provide images to inform you of my progress, and for you to provide direction.
I work with acrylic paint on canvas, however you can specify any variations or alternatives.
To frame or not to frame
I work on quality stretched duck cotton canvas. All Australian commercial galleries and Australian art prizes consider a stretched canvas to be a framed work. I have come to learn that framing is an extremely personal decision. I have framed my canvas and works on paper for many years, and I have access to a wonderful framer who has an excellent aesthetic with an abundance of choice. Pricing for frames are not included in commission price and will be an additional cost.
Stand and deliver
I will embrace the cost of freight and liability for commissions over $1,000 to Australian capital cities. Regional areas and orders under $1,000 will be assessed individually and a fee will apply.
Show me the money
A non refundable 50% deposit will be required to instigate the commission.
