Here are some of the incredible ideas my clients have commissioned from me.
As you set out to discover what you would like to create together,
you can take some inspiration from the creativity of these requests, as I have!
This client came to me requesting a flower in my unique fluid technique. She's a florist, so it meant a lot to her, but I had no idea if I would be able to do it. I'm really glad I went for it because we both loved the result.
And now I'm wondering if there may just be a botanical collection in the future.
Greece Topography Print
Want a topography map of your own country, or a country you'd love to visit? This piece was requested by someone preparing for a humanitarian aid trip to Greece. I painted this for her to sell as a fundraiser to cover her costs, and one for her to keep as well. We wanted to capture the blues and hues of the water, even though we only represented the land masses.
I knew it was only a matter of time until I recieved a request like this. My client and her family love the Broadway 'Hamilton', and with both sons preparing to leave the nest, she felt this quote summed up her feelings toward them. She picked her color scheme and font styles, and now this beautiful piece is hanging proudly in their home.
This piece was commissioned by Steltenkamp Fine Art Gallery in Winter Springs, Florida. The piece needed to be emotional and abstract, loosely inspired by the feeling of being pulled out to sea with the tide.
The Great Geysir
Inspired by a drone image he captured, Federico Barra commissioned this piece. We worked together to capture the grandeur of the geyser, and the textures of the surrounding landscape. I hope this project will fuel many more collaborations with drone and aerial photographers!
Abstract Map of
Cape Canaveral Area
I love the outcome of this unique request. This client wanted a map of the area around their home, but they wanted the focus to be on the water depths mostly, with hints at the land topography. I decided to do the land in a gold and cream color scheme, so the water would really pop. The client absolutely loves it, and can point out and name every river and lake. Such a special piece.
What slice of the earth would you choose?
Commissioned by a client for her husband, the goal was to create a fire opal in the shape of Australia. I never would have guessed this medium would be able to so incredibly emulate the textures and colors of this terrific stone. My client even ran the painting by a friend of hers who is an opal expert, and it was approved with flying colors. I cannot wait to see what new gemstone pieces are inspired by the success of this one!
