CUSTOM ART

Jump to Price Menu

Having artwork made to your specifications is easier than it sounds. The process begins when you contact me with a special request. We'll communicate over email, exchanging stories and ideas and perhaps photographs of your preferred subject. It's safe to say that at this point, no request is too crazy--in fact, I look at each project as a fun challenge. Below you'll find a description of my processes, and further down is my pricing menu for Wood Panel Canvas, Vintage Silver Plates, and Murals.  

WOOD PANEL CANVAS PAINTING

A common and more traditional request is for a painting on a wood panel canvas. These canvases have a depth of 7/8" to 1.5" depending on supplier availability. Each canvas is prepped carefully with a multi-step process before the watercolor paper is mounted to ensure that your painting maintains its archival quality through the years.

Due to the risk of damage during transport, I no longer offer paintings in frames with glass.

To finish and seal your painting, you have two choices: I can use two to three coats of lacquer, which acts as a protectant and gives a more "natural" painting look when it dries. Or I can pour a coat of resin, which provides a super high-gloss, almost glass-like finish.

VINTAGE SILVER PLATE PAINTING 

I've been collecting silver plates from thrift stores for some time, and decided a couple of years ago to repurpose them into works of art. It's become a favorite project of mine and a favorite of my patrons as well. 

These can be a little more whimsical, with bright and colorful designs painted on blackened silver. All plates are finished with resin to protect the otherwise easy-to-scratch artwork. Hanging hardware is fixed to the back with metal epoxy.

The advantage of resin sealing is extra protection from the elements and aging, though you will still need to keep your painting out of direct sunlight, as you would with any piece of art. 

The look also adds a dramatic element to the painting itself. Feel free to ask for my recommendation.

MURALS

I recently added indoor murals and larger panel pieces to my offerings and I've had so much fun with them. Pricing for these is dependent on many variables but begins at $500. Please contact me so we can determine the best direction for you.
