Work directly with Lindsay to produce a unique piece just for you. What story behind your most treasured photo should be transformed into an original work of art?
Step 1 - Pre-Consultation: We collaborate over a phone call or Zoom to see if our match would be a good fit. What story do you want told? What is the location or subject of your commission? Is it for yourself or a gift?
Step 2 - Proposal: I draw up two sketch ideas and proposed price. The price is based on the material cost, projected hours spent planning & creating, future consultation meetings, and travel (if applicable). A 50% deposit and signed contract will secure your commission.
Step 3 - Work Begins: You can expect completion anywhere between 4 weeks to 3 months. Those living within 20 miles of Chicago will receive free delivery. Those living farther will cover the cost of shipping. The final 50% is due upon delivery.
What do you mean by “collaborate”?
A pre-consultation offers the opportunity to discuss how your hopes, dreams, and important memories can be combined with the unique skills of a particular visual artist.
What is required to commission?
Before work begins the following three things are required:
1. A pre-consultation (Zoom or over the phone)
2. A 50% deposit
3. A signed contract
Do you work from photographs?
Yes! You will email 1-3 photos that capture the essence of the subject (person or place). I also work in mixed media and can physically incorporate other materials (papers, fabrics, objects) into the piece.
What is a typical price range for a commission and how long is the process?
Prices will vary depending on materials, size, and scope of the commission. This price covers consultations, basic materials, and preliminary work, and time spent creating. Similar to pricing, the time it takes to create a commission varies based on how extensive the project is. A typical duration could be anywhere from 4 weeks - 3 months
