Commission info

Hello! Having custom artwork in your home can really bring a room to life. I love collaboration and will work with you in detail before pencil or paint ever hits the canvas to make sure we have a clear vision of what your request is and what the final piece will look like. The information below details my general guidelines for commissioned artwork. For commercial illustration requests and any other inquiries, please email me at: contact@barbsotiart.com

PLEASE NOTE: I am currently booking into February 2018 for commissioned artwork.

COMMISSION PROCESS
After the initial project proposal email, a detailed price quote will be emailed back to you within 3-5 business days along with an estimated completion date. Upon concept and sketch approval, a 50 % non-refundable deposit payment is required to cover the artist material costs and time. Any images are to be provided before the start of the project and as per the photo requirements detailed below. The balance of the payment is required upon approval of the final piece and before delivery of the artwork.

PRICES & SIZES (As of January 7, 2017. Prices are subject to change.)
My prices are based on size and using a linear inch pricing method. Colored pencil work is priced at $12.00 per linear inch and acrylic paintings at $13.50 per linear inch. Framing, gallery edge canvases, additional elements and shipping and handling are all subject to additional costs. Custom sizes are available but may have exceptions.

IMPORTANT EXCEPTIONS
Currently, I am not offering painting commissions internationally. Only domestic (Canadian) drawing and painting orders are eligible for framing. Some larger sizes for drawings and paintings are not available for commissions. Please contact me if you have any questions.

SHIPPING & HANDLING FEES
Shipping costs estimates will be detailed in all orders when an official quote is provided via email. International insurance and tracking is highly recommended. Costs vary anywhere from$50.00- $100.00 CAD depending on the size of the piece. Commission pieces can be shipped without insurance for a lesser cost however, the artist will not be held responsible for any lost artwork.

PHOTO REQUIREMENTS
 When providing photos for the artist to work from, please follow these guidelines:
–  You must hold the copyright or have permission to use the photo from the photographer.
–  The photo must be as large as possible, clear and in digital format to provide the best amount of detail for the artist to work from.

PAYMENT REQUIREMENTS & METHODS
A  non-refundable 50% deposit is required on all projects prior to the beginning of work on the piece. This deposit covers the artist’s time and materials for the project. Final payment is due before the artwork is shipped or delivered. My preferred methods of payment are PayPal or e-transfers sent to barbsotiart@gmail.com.

All rights to the artwork are owned by the artist, Barb Sotiropoulos.
