Being asked to create a commission piece is humbling, exhilarating and a little scary. And Totally Thrilling!

But please understand that my commissions are not quick to do, they take consideration, significant time (30-60 hours or more), and usually several attempts before I have a piece that I am willing to present.

Starting from $ 1,000. depending on size, medium etc. 

Below are several recent commission pieces in micro pen and an acrylic piece. Sadly I no longer have images of all works I've created.

Buying from

an Artist


Buying from an Artist

When you are buying from an Artist you are buying more than just a painting or a novel or a song.

You are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation and thousands of failures. You are buying days, weeks, months and years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are buying night of worry about paying the rent, having enough money to eat, having money to feed the children, the birds  ... the dog.

You aren't just buying a thing - you are buy a piece of a heart, part of a soul, a private moment in someone's life.

Most importantly, you are buying that artist more time to do something they are truly passionate about; something that makes all of the above worth the fear and doubt; something that puts the life into living
