commissioned work

Commissioned Work:
I gladly take on commission pieces.  If you have any questions regarding concept, style, size or price—please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Here are a couple examples of that style I have done by commission from clients.  Each client explained the concept; traits or imagery that she felt best captured the essence the intended recipient of the piece.  From here I developed sketches.  From there, the client could decide which aspects were working and what needed to be reworked.  However, part of my creative process is instinctual and can’t be planned before the actual piece has begun.  Although, these initial stages allow me to get a better feeling of what each particular client has in mind, and develop the piece into my unique style.  This will also give the client a fairly accurate idea of what to expect in the finished piece.

In the following piece, the clients gave me themes, emotions, and color schemes from which to develop the pieces. These are the most common types of works commissioned by clients.  When working in this style, I have far less drawing and more collage.  Therefore, an initial sketch isn’t created.  Instead, patterns, paper, imagery, found objects, etc. are shown to the client for approval and to gain a better understanding of where the piece is headed.  From here images of the work’s progression are sent to the client to ensure the client is pleased with the development of the piece, and alterations can be made when necessary as the process continues.
