Interested in commissioning a painting?

Emily may take on commissions - depending on:

  • her current workload (if she is getting ready for a show or meeting a deadline it may not be possible)

  • agreement on size, timeline and price (outlined in a contract)

  • subject matter

  • a 40% non-refundable deposit is paid on commission, with the remainder to be paid on delivery. (Why non-refundable? Too often, commissions are undertaken and the client loses interest, fails to complete payment, or changes their mind. That can result in a lot of unpaid work for an artist and a painting that the artist can't sell because it's outside their typical oeuvre. A deposit is a promise of good faith.)

You will find some frequently asked questions and answers about commissions on the faq page.
