CUSTOM COMMISSIONS

FAQs + information listed below:

FIRST + FOREMOST, THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST!

I truly would not be where I am in this business + get to do what I love without my amazing clients. Your unending support means more than you will ever know!

Second, let's review some FAQ's:

  • Why is this a request form + not an item for regular checkout?

    A request form gives me the option to further discuss exactly what type of commissioned piece you have in mind. Depending on your request, it may require more time, more detail, different techniques, additional materials, the use of software, etc. This not only lets me decide if I think I am this best fit for your request, but it also gives you a space to ask questions before placing the order.

  • What commission requests are you willing to accept?

    I am open to anything, but don't accept everything! If I'm not comfortable completing your request, I will make other suggestions or give a personal recommendation for an artist that can better complete your request! #artistssupportartists

    If you are looking for high detail, I recommend watercolor.

  • What mediums do you work with?

    I specialize in watercolor, but also work with acrylics!

    I use high quality, professional grade watercolor paints for all of my watercolor paintings. My favorite to use is Winsor + Newton, but I also enjoy Yarka St. Petersburg!

REQUESTING A COMMISSION:

FYI: the current estimated turnaround time for regular paintings is 3-6 weeks plus shipping time. Please note this is an estimate + depending on your request in addition to the current workload, it may take longer if products need to be ordered or materials need to be sourced.

All commissions are completed in the order they were received. If you have a deadline you are trying to reach, you may opt for rush order. Rush orders require an additional fee.

After your commission request is discussed, I will send a purchase order to your email. Please review the purchase order before submitting payment, as commissioned + custom orders are non-refundable or exchangeable. Your purchase order must be paid in full before your order will be started. If I do not hear back from you within 7 days of submitting your purchase order, your order will be cancelled. Please read the return policy if you have any questions.

When you are ready to request, please fill out the form below!

FREE STANDARD U.S. SHIPPING ON COMMISSIONS*

*EXCLUDING PACKAGES OVER 70 LBS, OVERNIGHT, OR EXPRESS SHIPPING. Ornament listings during the holiday season do not include free shipping.

COMMISSION REQUEST FORM

If this commission is being given as a gift, I don't want to spoil any surprises! This lets me know what date it is safe to share with the public + post on social media.Enter "Anytime" if no specific date is necessary (i.e. not a gift + Kate can publicly share the process of working on it via Instagram stories, etc.).Enter "Personal" if you prefer to keep the artwork personal (I understand some pieces may be a sensitive subject, such as loved ones passing away, + I don't want to share anything you aren't ready to share yourself!).

Please allow 3-5 business days for a response to your email. If you do not hear back within that timeframe, check your spam + promotion folders, or send an email directly to kate@purposeunderpalms.com.Thank you for choosing me as your artist, I can't wait to bring your vision to life!
