Commission Process Detail

The Process


1. Contact Julia!

I can create a painting based on photographs, or from your ideas.  Portraits are the most common (people, pets, and homes), followed by customized reflection paintings.  Fill out the form here for a price quote.

    All Paintings Include:

  • high quality art materials

  • hanging hardware attached

  • delivery

2. Plan

Once the size is determined and a 50% deposit it paid, I will crop your photo or sketch your ideas to plan the composition.

3. Paint!

After we determine the layout, I will begin painting your image on canvas!  I send progress photos throughout the painting process and welcome your feedback.

4. Completion

Upon completion, I will send you photos of your painting.  I offer adjustments at no additional charge to ensure you are 100% satisfied with the completed painting.

5. Enjoy!

When the remaining balance is paid, I prep your painting for delivery or shipping!  Hanging hardware is attached to the back of your painting so it is ready to hang on your wall upon delivery.

Can I order a Commission?

Yes!  I accept numerous commissions throughout the year, completing custom paintings for both residential and commercial spaces.  Subject matter includes portraits, pets, homes, and more!  View samples of my commissioned paintings here.

Do you sell prints?

Yes! My shop is coming soon.  In the meantime, contact me for available hand signed limited edition giclees and paper prints.

When will you paint my city's skyline in the Reflection Series?

I complete a certain number of Reflection Paintings, Live Event Paintings, and Commissions at a time, so it's hard to say.  Reach out to me to commission a personalized reflection painting!

What methods of payment do you accept?

Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, PayPal, and check.

What about shipping?

All fine art products ship within 5-7 business days.  Originals and limited editions on canvas are shipped via FedEx.  Paper prints are rolled in a tube and shipped via USPS Priority Mail.

What about framing?

Every piece of art can be framed by the collector.  I can also frame the painting for you for an additional fee plus the cost of framing. However, all originals and limited editions on canvas are gallery wrapped on 1.5 inch bars.  The sides are painted so framing is NOT required.

Will you feature my painting on social media?

I love sharing client photos with others! Email your picture with my artwork displayed in your home for a chance to be featured on my website, Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

Can I return my commissioned painting?

Due to the personalization of commissioned paintings, I do not accept returns.

I live in the mid-Michigan area. Can I eliminate shipping costs?

Absolutely!  Contact me to arrange for delivery.

Can I get a print of my painting?

Absolutely! You can add prints on canvas or paper to your commission order.  This is a great gift idea for loved ones!
