How do I begin the commission process?
Know your space and budget. We start by collaborating on color ideas that will compliment your interior paint colors, fabric swatches and furnishings. Look through my site and tell me the titles of the pieces you are attracted to. I can guide you through the rest. Your order officially begins when you have officially chosen a size and made your deposit.
What if I want changes during the process?
If you like my current work and believe in my artistic vision, I am happy to work with you and accommodate a few edits. Once the process has begun, I will send you progress photos along the way and for that extra added touch, I can do 1-2 live video chats during the process to make sure we are on the same page and your opinions feel considered and heard before the piece is consided finished "finished". I usually do one video call prior to starting and one prior to completeltion.
