"It was so easy and fun to work with Jamie on my special Christmas gift for my husband. Her creativity and enthusiasm for her work is contagious. I sent her several possibilities and she chose the exact image to use that best showcases my husband's personality. She kept me in the loop with regard to her progress the entire way, and the end result nailed it! My husband declared it the best Christmas gift ever! Don't wait any longer. If you need that special gift for someone contact Jamie today!!!!" - Kelley, SC.
I have completed commissioned art for families all over the world and I would be delighted to collaborate with you on an artwork.
I take a lot of commissions. I think that’s because I started my career as a graphic artist, where my art and design sensibilities had a very clear purpose: to communicate very specific information.
Because of my years of experience in the digital darkroom and my graphic design expertise, I always mock up commissioned art up on the computer before I paint. I can adjust the lighting, the colors, and give you a very good idea of what your art will look like before I ever actually paint the piece. I decide on colors and composition, and consider the way the art will look in its new home.
Here’s my commission process:
Have you ever commissioned artwork before? If you’re an artist, do you enjoy taking commissions? Interested in talking about a work? Contact me!
Since I want to focus on creating beautiful art, I’ll let someone else handle the manufacturing, shipping, and delivery. I’ll sell templates, downloads, and of course, my original art on my own site. I’ll still work with a few trusted partners to create things like canvas art and cell phone cases to sell on my own site, but my plan is to shift a lot of the products to places like Redbubble and Zazzle so my international customers can have a better experience with my art.
