made exclusively for you
Commissioning a custom piece of art for your home or for a client is an exciting process. Each custom commission is a one-of-a-kind piece made to your specific design, size, and color specifications. Think of a commission as a partnership. We are working together to bring your vision to life. I will work with you to make the piece you were envisioning, and allow for several revisions to be made for your approval. Your satisfaction with your painting is my #1 priority.
Here are some things to think about before you decide to commission:
- What size do I need?
- What is my budget?
- What mood am I trying to evoke in my space?
"I had never commissioned a piece of art before. I had no idea what to expect. We knew we loved Christine's work but commissioning felt scary. Christine made the whole process so easy and created a stunning piece for our living room. Will definately be commissioning again!" – Adrien L.
"We commissioned Christine to make several pieces for our office space. She listened to our team and offered suggestions that made the whole interior space better for our employees. Her work is beautiful and adds a calming, upbeat energy to our office." – Jacob M.
"As an interior designer I've commissioned Christine several times now for client projects. Her work is always stunning, she runs ahead of schedule on her deliveries, and has a 100% success rate. You'll never regret owning a CEO painting." – Lauren M.
What to Expect
Every commission starts with a consultation. There is absolutely no obligation or consultation fee. Whether you're commissioning something for your family home or several works for a corporate project, the process remains the same.
I want to know everything about your vision and the mood you want to evoke. I want to know some of your favorite pieces. I'd love to see the space or wall where you're planning on hanging the piece. If you have other colors and textiles in the room I'd love to see those too.
Once we've decided on the size and I understand the vision, I will put together a design direction brief. This is key as I want to make sure I'm exactly getting the tones and undertones that you're hoping for.
With a clear vision for your commission outlined, I will send over a contract for both of us to sign. It will outline the agreed upon size, design direction, finishing elements, price, and delivery method. I do retain all copyrights to my works, even custom commissions.
Once both parties have signed the contract, and full payment has been rendered, I then get to work on your commission.
Depending on the scale and my current pipeline of projects commissions take anywhere from 1-3 months. Though a specific date will be given to you in the contract.
I do not send progress photos as finished works usually end up looking nothing like the process photos. Whenever I feel I have captured your vision and finished the work I will send photos to you for review. If there are any changes that you would like made, within the scope of our agreement, I will happily make them. Once you are 100% satisfied with your piece, I seal it with UV protection and a thicker varnish to protect from spills and long term damage. I put on the hanging apparatus and get the piece ready for delivery.
