Announcement   My Artist Profile:

I was born in small town Tartu, Estonia in 1979 and moved to Canada in my teens. Painting has been my hobby, since I was a small girl. Those early years were about developing techniques and finding out what I could do with the colors. I am self-taught artist except in recent years I have been taking different painting classes and workshops to advance my skills and to be able to work as a full time freelance artist. I paint landscapes, people, buildings and animals or anything else which offers a challenge. My goal in my paintings is to capture and share life’s beautiful moments and places. I prefer acrylic or watercolor on canvas.
I mainly paint from photographs. My home and studio are currently in Burlington, Ontario.

Commissioning

I hope that if you are considering commissioning me to do a painting, you appreciate my individual style but I am also capable of doing photorealistic work. I want the buyer to be 100% satisfied and I’m willing to work with you until that goal is reached and you are happy with end result.

The first step in the process is to decide what you want as the subject of your painting. I can work from a photograph of a person, anymal or object. (it must be a photograph that you have taken and that you have model release to use this) . Other subjects you may consider: The view from your livingroom window, your summer garden, your favorite local spot, your pet etc. Another option is to choose a painting of mine that you already like but would prefer it in a different color or a different size.

Once a theme is agreed upon, I start out by doing a couple thumbnail sketches (small painting that gives you a general idea of how it will look) or photo collages depending on the subject matter. At that point you can make suggestions about colors, the amount of detail, or the overall design. I will continue to create new thumb nails until an image is created that you are happy with. I will then paint a larger version of the thumb nail. I will photograph it a couple times during the process, emailing you the photo so you can give input along the way.

Pricing is always the least favorite aspect of the creative process, deciding how much something is “worth”. I usually determine my base fee as follows: Take the height of the piece in inches plus the width of the piece in inches and then times that number by 10. For example, an oil painting 8″x11″ would come out to (8+11=19) (19×10=$190.00). A painting 24″x36″ would cost $600.00 etc. I need 30% of the total fee before work begins. Buyer pays actual shipping and handling. If you send me the dimensions you’re interested in and your area code for US. purchases, I will tell you exactly what the shipping fees will be. For international orders, send me your city and country name for shipping estimates.

The finished painting will be on a gallery wrapped canvas with the sides painted in a continuation of the image on the front so it can be displayed without a frame. If you wish to have your piece framed, I charge actual costs of the framing, though you may want to have the piece framed in your area to save on shipping fees. Preferred payment method is PayPal.

If you are not satisfied with the finished product, you can send it back to me for a refund, less the deposit and shipping and handling fees. In that case, since you did pay a deposit, I will send you all of the thumb nail sketches etc. that were done for your painting.
