Thank you for your interest in commissioning a custom piece of artwork. I am so thankful and honoured to have you here.
About the process
I really enjoy creating bespoke pieces for my clients, whether it be for the home or the work place. In order for me to create something that we will both love, I will require some information from you. That way I can provide you with an accurate quote, colour palette and estimated timing.
To think about
1. Where would you like the artwork?
First step is knowing where you intend on displaying the artwork. Will it be for a living space, a high traffic area, the bedroom? Please take a photo of these spaces so I can see what the surroundings are. That way I will be mindful to make sure the painting will not only fit the space, but compliment any accent pieces of furniture or make sure it doesn't clash with any existing fitting.
2. What size would you like the artwork?
Next is the size. What I suggest is for my clients to measure out the size of the piece that they want. I would recommend using some painters tape or masking tape on the wall space so you can get a sense of scale, orientation and the right proportions. Once you are happy with it, take a snap of it and measure the width and length.
3. What style would you like?
I work with a variety of mediums including inks and acrylics, so if you have a preferred style, please let me know. Canvas pieces are usually pre-stretched, so if you are not based in Australia, please let me know, as I would prefer to save you shipping costs by shipping to you a rolled unstretched canvas.
4. Reference photos.
If you're after a similar piece of an artwork I've previously done, please take a screen shot and let me know which ones, or if you prefer them in a different colour, composition or size. If you have specific colour schemes for an area of your home, send those interior inspiration photos through! It will help me visualise the space and colours for your artwork. Please note however that all my pieces are unique and individually created, so no two will ever be the same.
5. Any specific requests?
Best thing about abstract art is that it evokes different emotions and meaning to each individual. I've had people commission a piece of work in a specific month of a year because that was special to them, or a specific colour included to match a newly acquired heirloom handbag. Don't hold back or feel weird about telling me any special requests, it may even help to let me know what are the definite no's.
6. Extra support.
If you have any specific question feel free to email me, or if you prefer a phone conversation, I'd be more than happy to arrange that.
Once you have thought about the above, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you within 5 business days. If you need something urgently or by a specific date, please do let me know and I will try my best to accommodate.
Thank you again for going on this journey with me. XO
