Thank you for your interest in commissioning a painting from me. Below, you will find all the necessary details regarding the commission process.
While my paintings depict reality, they are stylized and not detailed replicas of the references provided. I do not repaint past works, but I am open to creating new pieces based on elements you enjoy from your favorite paintings of mine. Before submitting a commission request, I recommend viewing my current work and style to ensure it aligns with your preferences.
To secure your commission spot, a non-refundable fee of $100 is required. This fee will be deducted from the total cost of the commission.
Please note that my oil paintings typically take an average of two to three weeks to dry enough for varnishing, framing, and shipping once completed. Therefore, I recommend placing your commission order no less than 6-8 weeks before the required date to allow for appropriate timing.
Collaboration & Imagery
Commissions are a collaborative process between myself as the artist and the collector. The artwork is based on imagery provided by the commissioner or a particular subject. It is important that the images provided are your own, as I cannot paint based on another person's photography or artwork. Additionally, I may request images of the space where the painting will be hung, as it helps me recommend the appropriate size and color palette.
Approval & Agreement
If an available time slot works for you and we both agree on a collaborative idea, we will enter into an agreement. This agreement will include details such as the price, size, timeline, color palette, framing, and shipping options.
Once work on the commission begins, an initial investment of 50 percent will be collected. The remaining balance will not be due until the piece is completed.
I look forward to collaborating with you and creating a unique and meaningful piece of artwork. If you have any further questions or would like to initiate the commission process, please feel free to contact me using the form below.

"After admiring paintings on Andrea's Instagram for months, I decided to invest in a painting for my home. We discussed colors and patterns that I liked and then Andrea created a painting idea based on my preferences. She asked me if I wanted to see progress or have it be a surprise...I opted for the surprise. It was worth the wait and it is a gorgeous addition to my home. She is beyond talented and I'm hoping to commission a second piece next year."

We own two pieces of Andrea's art, prominently displayed in our entryway. Andrea's passion and love for nature is beautifully and uniquely portrayed in her work. I'm anxiously awaiting the release of her next series. Andrea is open in discussing the thought process behind her paintings, which makes them even more precious. I highly recommend Andrea Nova for commissioned and curated works as well.

I have commissioned 5 pieces from Andrea and plan to continue collecting her works. I have also purchased several of her paintings for friends as gifts, and they were all hits! Her style works perfectly with my aesthetic and she has a great eye. She's easy to work with and extremely accommodating. Excited for my next Andrea Nova painting!
