ABOUT

Commission pieces are a great gift for yourself or a loved one for a special occasion or for the walls of your home.

I put all of my heart and soul into each individual piece I create, with your ideas and imagery incorporated into it, which makes it a unique, priceless piece that you will not find anywhere else in the world. This may even become an heirloom piece of artwork that will be passed down.

 

Please remember that you are asking for a one of a kind painting with your own subject matter, so the prices will reflect that. Everything will go towards supporting me and being able to continue creating the art that I love.

2. Kimono Gal

Create your very own signature Kimono Gal!

What I will need from you: Tell me what season and/or specific flower(s) you would like the kimono adorned with and leave the rest up to me!
 

I do a lot of research into the seasons and Japanese language of flowers with all of my Kimono Gal paintings, so I can also discuss with you any deep meanings you would like to incorporate into the painting.

Step 3. If the answer is yes, I may ask for more photos or details about the painting you want.
