What watercolor materials do you use?

All of my custom commissions are created on cold-pressed heavyweight watercolor paper with Daniel Smith watercolors, Holbien Artist's Gouache, and Micron ink pens. Everything I use is of archival quality to ensure your watercolor illustrations will last for years to come.


Do you make even bigger or smaller watercolors?

It all depends on the size. I can make custom illustrations much smaller than 7x10, but the absolute largest I can make is 17x23. I would recommend any of my standard sizes, but please contact me regarding custom sizes and we can work something out.


Does your art come pre-matted?

Nope! All custom commissions, as well as prints come just as they are. Thankfully, all standard commission sizes fit perfectly in ready-made frames if you put a 2-inch mat all the way around, so you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on custom framing!

How long will my commission take?

From the time of payment, commissions can take up to 4 to 6 weeks to complete. Since I am also a full-time student in addition to a professional artist, time of year and class load can also impact the timeline of custom pieces. If you need a work of art more quickly than 4 to 6 weeks, please let me know as soon as we begin our relationship, so we can expedite the process as much as possible.

What factors influence price?

The price listed for custom works of art is the beginning price for that size. Factors such as complexity of design, use of special techniques or materials, or rushed completion can all impact the final price of custom work. For commissions that will be used in print or publications, type of publication and run time of publication will also factor into the final price.

Can I commission a piece in another medium?

Absolutely! I work with pencils, ink, acrylic paints, and digital media, so those are other options as well! Since these mediums aren't standard for me, pricing will vary depending on the size and complexity of the commission.
