how to buy

Original commission, hand-embellished prints, image license, or rental? Scroll down to learn more about each of these options and view images of client projects. Then order a complimentary artwork sample kit below.

Originals + Commissions

My original work is available for purchase in several ways. The most efficient way is to visit my online archive, which includes pricing. If a piece is currently with a gallery, the archive will direct you to the appropriate contact. Otherwise, you can purchase from me directly.

For commissioned work, including my Playing With Fire burned paper series, please contact me directly.

hand-embellished prints

A hand-embellished print is an archival print of an original work of art that is enhanced through additional handwork by the artist. My hand-embellished prints are a particularly good solution when a client wants something special, yet originals would be otherwise cost-prohibitive. This is also an interesting option for large multi-room projects that require a high volume of artwork.

Please contact me directly for more information.

Art Rental

Collectors – both institutional and private – now have the option to try before they buy when it comes to original art. New research is showing that real art in the workplace is a catalyst for productivity and wellbeing. I work through several fine art dealers on this, so if you'd like to know more about art rental, please contact me and I’ll get you to the right person.
