Commissions are always a conversation between artist and art buyer. Usually there is a specific place or time that the work will be hung and/or revealed. For a celebration or for daily enjoyment, art will always be the perfect gift and expression of your unique ideas.
To make your wish come true, I take time to get to know you, your wishes and ideas and also provide preliminary sketches before we advance to the next stage. I aim to understand your ideas fully and this takes time and effort.
This also means that the process is divided into stages and payments for the work mirror that process.
The first stage is defining your wishes to as much detail as you can provide. Timeline, type of work, size of the work and medium choice. This stage is on you and the more detail you provide, the more detailed I can be in giving you a quote.
Secondly, after your approval of this binding quote, I provide you with the sketches and we fine-tune the design, colours, materials and so on and you are required to make a downpayment of 25%.
After the work on your piece has started and is halfway complete, the next instalment of 25% is paid.
When work is 90% complete, there will be a planned viewing of the work in which we work out the final details on presentation etc. Then the next payment of 25% will be required.
The last 25% of the payment is due when the work is delivered to you or placed in your own environment for you to enjoy.
I take on commissions for wearable art pieces, paintings and sculptures. I look forward to hearing from you.
