Commissions

It’s my belief that art serves to our emotional well-being, happiness and healing. I bring elegance and grace into this world through my portrait paintings of women, celebrating the feminine spirit and strength. With my surreal paintings you choose to dwell in a special place of beauty, to preserve a memory, and to feel inspired.

Commission an elegant and rare painting that connects and nurtures your spirit. You can create a special occasion gift that lasts a lifetime. It could be a neat portrait painting or a custom landscape piece for a birthday, anniversary, or event. The artwork can be of any size from 8×10  to 36×48 inches.

I create two types of commissioned art: landscapes and portraits. Most of the time I work from my photographs! I prefer taking pictures myself for portrait commissions whenever possible. The photo shoot ( a $3,000 value) is free for you when you schedule an appointment with me for picture-taking. I usually shoot one hour before the sunset. However, if you live outside Florida and don’t wish to travel, I can work with your professional photographer to get high-resolution photographs to paint from. I can’t paint from pictures taken with your phone or the flash. There is not enough information for me to paint a high-quality portrait from. I pay close attention to lighting, composition, model’s pose and a special atmosphere that I capture through my photography that’s often absent in snapshots.

When you decide to commission a painting we discuss:

  • Theme and subject
  • Color and mood
  • Painting support and size
  • Framing. There is a choice of framing it yourself or letting me frame it.
  • Delivery time. How fast do you need your piece to be painted and delivered at your door step?
  • Pricing. You’re paying for quality. The final price depends on the complexity of work and size. A 50% deposit is required to start working on any commissioned painting.
  • Current price range: 36×48” $7-8,000. 24×36”- $5,000 18×24”-$2,500 16×20” $2,000 11×14” $1,500 and 8×10”-$1,000. Custom sizes are also available. Price includes framing.
I can either let you frame the artwork, giving you credit, or frame it myself. Prices include framing.
