Want to buy an artwork that has already sold? Or need a piece in particular colours or size perfect for your space? A commissioned artwork would be the ideal choice for you. This is your chance to work in collaboration with Celeste and create that piece that you've always dreamed of.
There is absolutely no need to have any art knowledge or even know exactly what you are after. Just let us know that you are interested in a commission piece and we will guide you through the process step by step. Here's a little about what to expect in the commission process...
Step 1: Enquire to Commission an Artwork
Contact us and we have an initial chat to get key information for the commission. We want to get as much information as you can give us about the piece – size, colours, subject, style etc. The more we know, the easier it is to make sure the piece is absolutely perfect for you! If your mind isn’t 100% made up, we’re happy to talk through a range of options and send you different images and ideas until you’re sure of what you want. This can be done via email, video consult or a studio consult in my studio based in the Macarthur region of Sydney.
We always recommend you have a look at the pricing of the original works on our website to give you a good idea of what pricing to expect for the size you are after.
Step 2: Quote & Pricing
Once we have a clear idea of what you are after a quote and a time frame estimate will be sent to you.
Step 3: Accepting the Commission Quote & Deposit
Once you’ve confirmed you’re happy with the quote provided, we are ready to roll! To get started, we require a 50% non-refundable deposit – this covers the cost of the materials and time involved in the initial stages. You’d be surprised how expensive quality art materials can be! Never fear though. Celeste will work with you every step of the way to ensure you go home with a work that you absolutely adore!! She will not rest until you're 100% satisfied with your commission piece.
Step 4: Completing the Commission and Making Changes
Celeste will update you once your work is ready to commence making. She will share photos of your colour palette with you to approve. Then as she proceeds Celeste will share photos and videos with you of the work in process for your feedback and approval. This is your chance to offer your input and make sure your vision is being realised. Sometimes changes aren’t necessary, but sometimes you just wish that the pink you didn't think you wanted much of, you finally decide needs a little more– and that’s okay! Celeste will take your changes onboard and work until you are absolutely in love!! Soon the final piece will be ready for you to hang on your wall.
Step 5: Completion, Final Payment and Shipping
Finally! After being so patient and excited, your artwork is finished and ready to be shipped. At this point you’ll pay the final amount, and the painting will be sent to you via courier once the payment has been received in full. Now for the best bit, hang the work you've been dreaming up forever on your wall, sit back and enjoy!!
Let's Get Started!
We can't wait to hear from you! GET IN TOUCH and Celeste will get the commission ball rolling! Hooray!!
Celeste was receptive to all our ideas and was incredibly patient with us as we changed our mind (continually throughout the process.) The finished artwork is AMAZING! Such a colourful abstract piece that matches our personality and home décor perfectly! Celeste has really gone above and beyond to ensure that we LOVE our original piece and her attention to detail is incredible. From re-doing the 'drips' on our artwork to ensure we had the perfect paint drips to varnishing the artwork 10 times 'just to be sure'... she really has gone above and beyond.
We would not hesitate in recommending Celeste! Her work is outstanding and she makes the entire process fun and collaborative; leaving you with great memories to go with your new artwork.
