Do you take custom orders?
Yes, I take custom orders from professional interior designers and architects only.
I do make some exceptions with clients or collectors who are knowledgeable with the techniques and materials specific to a special order.
My client would like you to create an original piece with elements of his choice pictured. Can you do that?
Creating work on demand is second nature to me. I have worked in the advertising, publishing and editorial illustration world
for many years , I like the challenge, and I am familiar with the process,
In such cases I begin with small pencil sketches of the basic concept and design, next I narrow it down with my client to one idea. I create a second detailed sketch of the picture , and I proceed with the finished art upon written approval .

I like one of your painting but it is vertical and I need it to be horizontal, can you make such a change?
In most cases I can. Having worked as an illustrator for years, I have had to adapt my compositions to a variety of format.
As a result when I create an image very often I extend the background on all sides.
Most decorative images lend themselves well to this sort of change. On the other hand certain type of narrative compositions are more difficult to accommodate.
I love a painting of yours but the colors do not match our design project?
Since I work digitally I can make color variations to a large degree.
What I would do is to provide you with a "color comprehensive sketches of color variations,
that we can discuss by e-mail or Skype an eventually make a small print to test the color match.
Can you have the work framed according to our requirements?
Mounting a print or canvas on stretcher bars is different than putting a decorative frame around it.
A large fine art print on paper needs to be protected behind glass whereas a canvas , vinyl or new material print with a protective coat can be mounted without a decorative frame.
I will undertake mounting and framing on my side with a 40% markup on my cost.
What is the largest print that can be made?
There is a demand in interior design for large works, ranging from 48" by 48" to 60" by 60" square.
Wall size paintings above 60" by 80" can be created in segments and mounted on rigid aluminum stretcher bars.
Most of the work that I have created lately can be blown up to 96" by 96" without any loss of detail.
Occasionally I have recreated large prints from a small digital painting, by redoing the image altogether.
Can you stretch or mount a large print and send it?
The cost of shipping being prohibitive for large framed work it is preferable to send the work in a rigid tube, and have it framed or mounted locally.
I am willing to send large works mounted flat with a 40% mark up on my cost.
