What about pricing and payment?

What types of artworks can I commission?

You have the freedom to commission any type of artwork you desire. This can range from a detailed portrait of your cherished pet to an abstract piece that perfectly fills the void above your fireplace. If you've been inspired by an artwork you've seen elsewhere, you can request something in a similar vein. To ensure the artist brings your vision to life, it's vital to provide them with a comprehensive brief. Uploading and sharing photos can be a great way to offer them a clearer idea of what you're envisioning.

Why should someone commission a custom portrait?

Commissioning a custom portrait goes beyond just having a piece of art; it's about capturing emotions and moments that are uniquely personal. Such portraits exude exclusivity, tailored to one's individual preferences, encapsulating a special moment or feeling. Moreover, think of a custom portrait as a timeless investment. It's not just about the aesthetic appeal; it preserves cherished memories, acting as a historical record of a particular time or phase in your life, tailor-made just for you.
