“All works of art are commissioned in the sense that no artist can create one by a simple act of will but must wait until what he believes to be a good idea for a work “comes” to him.” ~W.H. Auden
Commissions are Gladly accepted and opened several times a year. I will only take on a commission if I feel I can do justice to your Artistic Request!
If you see a piece you’d like or have an idea for a commission, simply leave me a message and I’ll get back to you.
Art Work on the Site
Most artwork displayed on the site is available for purchase and most pieces can be commissioned in a variety of colors and sizes.
As a Mixed Media artist I use a wide variety of materials including, Golden, Liquitex and Tri Art Artist Quality Acrylics with high pigment loads, Shiva paintstiks, Watercolors, Alcohol Inks, semi precious stone chips, rhinestones, stain glass, acrylic mediums and so much more resulting in a unique one of a kind painting each time.
Most of the acrylic paintings are done on 100% cotton triple primed acid free canvas or birch panels in 1.5″ profiles.
Canvas is back stapled with smooth, staple-free sides.
Alcohol ink paintings are done on Yupo tree free paper. 18″x 20″+ Alcohol paintings are mounted to birch cradle board and are ready to hang.
The paintings are twice sealed with varnish or Gloss medium to protect from UV and dust. Larger canvas’s have wooden stretcher bars for support.
All paintings come signed, dated and have the paintings inspiration described on the back.
Please note that each piece is copyrighted, and as a buyer, you are purchasing the actual work and not the rights to the image.
If you require the rights for advertising or business purposes, please let me know and we can discuss the details.
Within Canada, most commissioned paintings include tracked shipping in the price. If you are outside of Canada, contact me and I can provide you with a shipping quote.
