Large or small, I treat every commission as a collaboration. My experience with commissions extends from projects as large as multi-panel installations for public and corporate spaces to as small as the perfect vessel accent for an interior design project.

Through years of working with art consultants, interior designers and individual homeowners, I have developed a step-by-step commission process that puts the vision of each of my clients first. Not exactly sure what the vision is just yet? My process can walk you through that too.

Check out the recently finished commissions below and email me for an Information Sheet that details my commission process.

A Hospital in Lake Forest Illinois

A great many thanks go to Art Expressions for commissioning my work for their client, a hospital in Lake Forest Illinois. Art Expressions is a long-time art consultancy firm located near the hospital that was charged with the responsibility of commissioning art for an entire new wing. What a huge project! When they contacted me last year to discuss a possible commission, I immediately forwarded them samples to include in their presentation to their client.  Lucky for me, their client chose my work, among others.  Many ideas went back and forth (brainstorming with a client is one of my favorite parts of the process) before the client settled on a design for a large installation consisting of eight 20 x 20″ panels, with coloration and gradation flows connecting the entire composition. Overall, the installation measures 8 feet wide by 4 feet tall. Here’s how the final install turned out (spoiler alert – I love it!): Thanks again Art Expressions!  I hope we get to do this again soon.  

Commissioned Dreamcape Sculpture

I seriously love commissions.  I view each one as a collaboration and try to include my client in the creative process as much as possible.  So when a client contacted me to commission a special piece for her home, I was excited to help out. In this case, my client was re-decorating a space and wanted the perfect finishing touch.  We worked together on the size, shape, and texture before hammering out the final coloration of the piece.  We were so pleased with how it turned out. The multiple blue tones are incredibly aquatic.

Completed Commission, Amador Bowl Revised

Want some blue with that green? A client really liked Amador Bowl, which is a production piece  . . . but really wanted the bright green to be more . . . blue/green.  No problem, it’s on its way. Made with reclaimed glass, pigments, and variegated copper foil.  I like the blue/green of this bowl so much, I may incorporate it into a production bowl, but with a different pattern, of course.
