New Commissions

To start a custom painting request please email me at karisamarleyart@gmail.com with following information:

  • Desired size (see sizes & pricing below)
  • Desired media (canvas or paper)
  • Your Location
  • Color Preferences - 3 to 4 must have colors & 3 to 4 colors to avoid
  • Timing - Please let me know if you need your commission for a special event or specific date.
  • 2-4 Images that convey the essence of what you envision for your painting (this can be anything & doesn't need to be a photo of a painting)
  • Your Story - I find a lot of people have something special they want their commission to remind them of... a loved one, a special trip, a moment they are proud of… so if you want your painting to tell your story let me know!

Custom Painting Process

After I receive your email I will look it over and the collaboration process begins:

  • First a quote / detailed invoice is sent. Payment is made in two installments with 50% due as a deposit before the painting is begun.
  • After the invoice is paid the fun begins! I will send you a color palette and concept for your approval.
  • Your painting will be created over a period of 4-6 weeks. During this time I will email process shots and we will keep in touch to make sure the painting is headed in the right direction.
  • Final payment will be invoiced upon completion and client approval.
  • Shipping will be invoiced separately since it will vary depending on commission size & your location. If you are located in Seattle or would like to pick up your painting that can be arranged.

Policies

Returns & Refunds: I will not ship your commission unless you are 100% happy with it, so no refunds or returns of custom paintings will be accepted.
