Commissioning a Painting

I enjoy painting commissions across a range of subjects. There is something refreshing about the challenge of a new and unusual subjects, whether wilderness and rural landscapes, portraits of beloved pets, or the evocation of a special time.

The process can a little intimidating and I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Just email me, or check out my answers to some frequently-asked-questions below.

Frequently Asked Questions

I work across a wide range of sizes, from  8" x 12" to 36" x 48".

How does pricing work?

Commissions are priced by size, with prices comparable to regular work.

Custom commissioned paintings come with free shipping within Canada, and cost $25 flat rate worldwide.

I am happy to offer free delivery and installation for paintings within British Columbia (Mainland/Southwest, Thompson/Okanagan, Kootenay, Vancouver Island/Coast, and Cariboo), as well as across the USA/Canada border in Washington State (Whatcom County). If you live beyond these listed areas, I ship paintings worldwide.
