Free-hand Personal Creative Services:

Substance organically developed out of a handful of commission requests from Studio/Gallery visitors The resulting work was always really fun, so we decided to deliberately offer various commission services:

  • Free-hand Murals
  • Paintings and Illustrations
  • Hand-Painted Surfboards
  • Nursery Art and Birth Announcements
  • Wedding Invitations and Certificates
  • Looking for something else, ask and help expand this list!

Making the art that represents experiences of such substance is a real privilege.  It's interesting and challenging to make work of someone else's conception or to get to know a client well enough to author appropriate content.  Either approach is really fun.


Once we have been in touch (studio visits encouraged here) to discuss your specific needs.  In doing so, we build your creative brief together with the aid of a few targeted questions.  Once the details are in place, I send a quote.  You click accept and work begins with a 50% deposit.  

For printed material, a draft is emailed 10 business days from the date a quote is accepted.  Any changes are made within 10 business days of receiving your notes for the edit.  A final proof is sent off for an approval. and you will receive a print-ready .pdf upon making payment. 

Murals, paintings and other work desired as an original require more details than sending digital media, so just contact to discuss what you are looking for.  Your most ambitious ideas are encouraged.
