If you are interested in commissioning a piece of art, please contact me HERE.

To give you more of an idea of what's involved, I am doing commissions sized at 30"x40" for about $10k...ish. I spend about 200 hours deliberating and painting each one with the utmost care and attention, and it is best to allow at least six months for completion. I can do smaller or larger pieces, too—it really depends on the project, the budget, and if we would be a good match for working together. I recommend sending me a message to share your ideas and budget, and then we can see what's possible!

At the current moment, I am selling my commissions for a good bit less than the originals I have listed for sale because my personal body of work includes some of my very first paintings, and those will ultimately sell for higher prices. The price of both my commissions and other originals will balance out eventually, as my collection expands. Now is an excellent time to hire me for commission work, as offers have increased by about $1-2k or more per piece (every 10-12 months or so). In terms of investment, the value of my art has more than doubled since 2010. Most of my collectors wouldn't even dream of re-selling their painting because they have such a deep emotional connection to the work, but if the need would ever arise to re-sell, the art is an excellent collector's item that will only increase in value over time.

Commission work is some of the most rewarding work I’ve
ever done, and I am always amazed at what unfolds.

I often think of my commission relationships as a kind of divine romance in many ways. We get to engage in a beautiful dance, one in which there are plenty of sparks of inspiration, trust, risk, and flow; and the art, in turn, becomes a magical reflection of that dance.

I’ve gotten to a point where my commission work and the development of my personal body of work feel like one and the same. The people who hire me really appreciate my style of painting, they recognize what I stand for, and wish for me to channel their ideas in the same way I channel my own, which is to create physical representations of very curious, magical, and mystical realms of experience. I'm often given a concept to just run with, which is how I typically work best. After our initial consultations, many of my clients enjoy letting the magic unfold into one big beautiful surprise, with maybe some small reveals along the way to build anticipation and excitement.

The commission process can be a fairly revealing and intimate one because I’m not just doing a pretty still life or abstract piece to match your living room color palette—I’m giving your personal prayers and otherworldly experiences life on canvas, which is best carried out in our design conversations through some deep self inquiry, good intuition, and surrender to the whims and mystery of the imaginal realms. The whole process is really quite a magical experience, and I invariably develop some delightful friendships with the people I work with. In the end, a beautiful piece emerges with which you feel a deeply significant emotional connection, and will cherish your whole life through.

It is my honor and extreme pleasure to channel the intangible, the seemingly ineffable, into visual form for you and all the world.

Creating meaningful art takes a lot of courage, kindness, and patience. The ultimate creative act is born through a willingness to grow, make mistakes, learn—let go. In my own practice, painting is a lifelong lesson in getting out of my own way—to let the art create itself through my hands, and simply allow what wants to come through. I am always asking questions, always listening. To that end, I point my brush toward the inexplicable knowing, and give life's mystery some form in a way that hopefully "remains translucent, so that it may not block out the very light it is trying to convey." (Joseph Campbell)
