COMMISSIONING A SPECIAL STORY TREE
I accept STORY TREE commissions on a case-by-case basis given the time-frame requested. The commission package includes the original art, the handwritten story, and one 8x8 Giclée print of the tree with the story embedded.
HOW TO APPROACH A COMMISSIONED TREE
The best way to approach a commission is to imagine the spirit of the tree and the essence of a story you would like conveyed. These trees have minds of their own, and I find that when I set an intention for something or someone, they simply emerge. If I try to put rules and expectations on them, they rebel through mucky colors and wonky lines.
Once illustrated and storied, I will show you the finished product. If you are not 100% truly-madly-deeply in love with your tree and his/her story, I will not charge you. S/he will happily move into one of our forests.
Prices for commissions begin at $695.
A 50% refundable deposit will be required for all commissions. The other 50% is due upon acceptance of your commission. If you do not accept the commissioned piece, your deposit will be returned.
Payment plans are available on a case-by-case basis.
