Current estimated wait time for Custom Watercolor Commissions is 4 - 6 weeks.

Thank you for your interest in a custom watercolor commission by yours truly! Below is a pricing list for the types of custom pieces I’m currently offering.  I do take these paintings on a first come, first serve basis and will work down the list.  Only one subject per portrait! Please read through this entire guide before ordering. Please note, pet & house portraits can be done on either Watercolor Paper or Clayboard! 

Watercolor Paper

The portrait will be painted directly on gallery grade, 100% cotton archival acid free paper, 300gsm/140lb. The surface will be sprayed with a satin archival finish but must be protected with your own glass frame. FRAME NOT INCLUDED.

Clayboard with Floater Frame

The portrait will be painted directly on professional watercolor clayboard, cradled on 1.5” deep wood surface and protected with a satin archival finish. A floater frame is included in white, black or maple so that your painting is ready to be hung!

Other Custom Artwork

I offer many other custom works including, invitations, greeting cards, nursery prints, automobiles and more! Unfortunately I do not accept human portraits of any kind. Possibly in the future but for now it's just not my gig. If you’re interested in something other than a custom pet portrait or house portrait, please email me so we can dive in and create something amazing! Pricing is determined on a per project basis.

Shipping a Fine Art Piece is very expensive due to the nature of the shipment. I charge only a fraction of the shipping, packing, and insurance cost of each piece. Each painting is carefully wrapped, packaged, and is fully insured. Please see the breakdown of shipping cost by final purchase price:


Watercolor Paper Commissions

$0 - $50 = $5 shipping/packing/insurance fee

$50 - $225 = $10 shipping/packing/insurance fee

$225 - $390 = $15 shipping/packing/insurance fee

$390 - $750 = $25 shipping/packing/insurance fee

$750 + = $50 shipping/packing/insurance fee


Clayboard w/Floater Frame Commissions

8 x 8, 8 x 10 = $15 shipping/packing/insurance fee

10 x 10, 11 x 14, 12 x 12, 12 x 16 = $25 shipping/packing/insurance fee

Return Policy

Due to the nature of commissioned portraits & products, I do not accept exchanges. If your commissioned piece has already been started, I do not accept cancellations. Unless your items arrive damaged or defective, I do not accept returns for custom or personalized orders unless the item is damaged during shipping.  I will share an image of the completed commissioned piece with the client before it’s shipped. If there's something you don’t love, let me try to fix it! I want you to love what you’re getting!
