Commissioning a Painting or a Book
I love doing commissioned work, and have made illustrated books as well as portraits of animals, houses and landscapes for clients. Please contact me directly at 617.519.3380 or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your project.
Gift Certificates: Give a gift voucher for a commissioned portrait for the holidays, birthday or anniversary. This is a wonderful gift because the recipient can choose their favorite photos for the basis of the portrait. Please contact me for a gift card.
Pets: If you are interested in ordering a custom pet portrait, all I need to get started is a few photos of your pet, preferably in natural light (outdoors, but not with strong shadows) and high resolution with the eyes in strong focus. Before starting a painting, I always like to know as much about your animal companion's personality and what you find most endearing.
Houses: Please send a few photos that I can work from that show as much detail as possible.

I enjoy working with www.framebridge.com to do framing of my originals and prints. You can choose the style of frame you’d like and they will ship you a box where you can send them your new painting and they will frame and send it back to you for free shipping. They do excellent work.
Books: I currently make customized books that can combine photography with illustration and painting, as well as texts of your choice. The above gallery shows several of the illustrated letters which I made to fit the first letter of poems chosen by a client.
