“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” Michelangelo
I’m now offering custom work and commissions!
Types of Custom Work
Arts & Crafts Style
Personalize your pet with the same classic style based on the new arts & crafts style of my pure breeds. Originally painted mixed media fine art piece by Lisa (that’s me!) on canvas, the choice of pet is yours.
Chinese Zodiac Family Crest
Personalize your family tree with a Chinese Zodiac Family Crest. Imagine each family member woven together representing each branch of the family crest. An original painting in brush & ink or mixed media will remain in your family for generations.
Personalized stationery will also be available after purchase. Samples forthcoming.
Custom/Commission Price Guidelines
How to purchase a custom piece:
Brush & Ink Prices range between $400 – $700; Size: 14″ x 14″
Mixed Media Prices begin at $800; Sizes begin at 20″ x 20″
Overall, your final price will be determined by my time, the size, the complexity of design, the production of the actual work and whatever installation might be required. Since this work is custom, you decide all those requirements which means you’ll have a great deal of control over your costs.
It’s simple, just email me and we can chat about any details you’d like.
Once I receive payment, I start on the work. I keep in mind the colors you’d like the most, and it would take about 4-6 weeks to finish depending on the wait. Anything prior to a holiday must be ordered at least by October 15th.
NOTE: If you still want to purchase a commission for a holiday gift, I’d be happy to provide you with a special holiday card and note to announce the arrival of the gift.
A 50% deposit is required before I can start work on the project. This is needed to make necessary revisions and to cover material costs.
Payments with cash, money order, cashier’s check, or with a credit card via Paypal. I offer a 10% discount for payment other than a credit card. Upon completion of the painting, the final balance will be due, including shipping costs if applicable.
Ask about payment plans!
Terms of Commission
The great thing about a commission is that you are getting a one of a kind original from me based on your request. You are paying for the painting, however not the copyright.
As the artist, I will retain all copyrights in the image. That basically means you own the physical painting, but I own the image. You cannot reproduce the image without permission, so you cannot make prints or greeting cards or t-shirts for your friends, etc. More info to be covered later.
