Commissioned Work

Now accepting commissions for Summer/Fall 2007.

Commission agreements offer a great challenge for me as an artist. At the same time, I must not only work to my satisfaction, but must also satisfy you who have commissioned the work. This creates a delicate balance between creativity and approval, a balance that must be maintained throughout the execution of the work. Close cooperation and communication between the artist and the purchaser reduces any potential for discord.

Technology being what it is today, this commission agreement is the best I've found. Please read through the steps I use and see if they are agreeable to you. As you are reading, please write down any questions you may have about the process. Then print these pages and contact me by email or phone. If you want me to render a commission for you, I will email you a contract that we will fill out over the phone. We can discuss your photo choice, how it will be positioned on the paper, the general time frame that it will take to complete the commission and other particulars at that time.

After you are satisfied that all questions have been answered, mail the contract signed and a 30% deposit (and the photo(s) if you are not e-mailing them) to the address listed on my contact page. I will contact you by phone or e-mail at the receipt of the contract, sign and copy it, and mail you a copy for your records with a receipt for the deposit.
