Is there a landscape or special moment that you'd like to see immortalized in a painting?
Allow me to turn your photo into a work of art, made uniquely for you.
Here's how the process generally goes:
First you'll send me an email with your painting request. It's best if you send me a photo in this first email.
I'll send you my quote, contract and an estimated date for completion.
Once you sign the contract and send the deposit I will start the artwork. It's that simple!
How do I reach out to you about custom work?
Send an email to email@example.com
What kind of kind of things do you paint?
I really love to create meaningful scenes from nature, but I can paint a variety of things. Scroll down to see examples of things I've painted before.
I do not make vector art. Please don't send me requests that contain vulgarity or nudity. I may refuse any request that does not go along with my aesthetic or values.
What medium do you use?
I used watercolor paints for all my paintings. Check out my originals page to see what that looks like. I can also make you a drawing with pencil or black ink.
How much does it cost?
Cost depends on the project, below is a link to a generalized pricing sheet, I'll give you a more accurate number when you send me your request.
"Working with Kim has got to be the smoothest process of getting something custom painted! She was super speedy and responsive on emails and got my painting done and shipped (to Canada!) with so much time to spare for Christmas. The process itself was really fun- she sent sneak peeks along the way, showed me her sketch before she started painting, and allowed me to add something fun to the design, too. The painting turned out so beautifully- my only regret is that I wrapped it up as soon as it arrived so now I have to wait until Christmas to see it again, too! I would absolutely recommend commissioning her for your custom watercolor dream. I can’t wait to hang our piece up in our home."
This client requested a painting of the cabin where here and her husband got married.
Illustration for Earth Island Journal
I had the opportunity to create an illustration for a nature publication called Earth Island Journal. They commissioned me to make the art for one of the articles in their June 2022 edition. The article was about the impact of taking things from nature, specifically taking rocks from Schoolhouse Beach in Michigan.
