Commissions and Sales
I paint because I love to paint. It gives me immense pleasure to be able to ‘use’ my hobby to support something I truly believe in : protecting our planet and her natural resources. Proceeds from all sales and commissions are donated to either wildlife or environment protection groups, or to animal welfare charities. Here’s how this works:
- Painting charges are made up of materials, labour and sales tax components. The labour component of any sale or commission is donated to a charity of your choice (please align with the wildlife/environment/animal welfare themes for charitable organizations – I can provide suggestions if needed).
- Most of the paintings on my galleries are for sale (prices range between $100-$1000) except where indicated as SOLD.
- You can commission a painting : I will work to your specifications. If you want a photograph converted to a painting, you must own rights to the photograph.
- I retain all copyrights and showing rights to any artwork – whether sold off the website or commissioned.
Please contact me if there’s a gallery painting that you would like to own or if you are interested in commissioning a painting. Click on an image to view.
