This is when a Collector reaches out to Marin to have a custom piece of artwork completed based on their personal story or core values of their business. A questionnaire will be sent to the Collector prior to beginning the commission process to gather details on sizing, colors, etc.
This depends on the size of the piece and design. The overall process takes 6-8 weeks, pending any design changes.
No. The artist does however have a non-refundable deposit in the event the Commission is canceled. When Marin accepts a commission, other creative opportunities are turned down so she can focus on the Collectors custom piece.
Commissions can be canceled 30-days prior to the agreed upon start date. Any cancellations after that will be handled on a per case basis.
Yes. To stay true to the artist’s style and creative process, should drastic changes be requested the artist has the right to decline. If dramatic changes are requested that align with the artists style\brand, additional fees may be added to the final investment upon completion. This will be discussed with the Collector beforehand.
Weekly updates, including images being sent to the Collector, are standard format for Marin’s commission process. Some Collectors choose to decline this option to be 100% surprised upon delivery.
Yes. Collectors can request limited copyright to their artwork upon completion.
This means Marin will not post full image pictures of the commission on social media accounts, on her website, or use any digital images of the artwork on any printed materials (greeting cards, journals, etc).
As the artist, Marin owns creative rights to the artwork so the Collector cannot use digital imaging to create physical or virtual products.
This varies on the size of the piece, style, and products used. An initial investment of 50% is requested upfront, with the final investment paid to the artist upon completion (prior to shipment). Please feel free to send an email to email@example.com to request information or receive an estimate!
As the artist, Marin handles the title of the piece the same as the creation process. If a title is assigned to the piece before it's created, it can potentially subtract from the organic development of the commission. As the Collector, you are empowered to convey what statement you’d like the piece to make and Marin will absolutely embed that into the final creation!
The commission process is truly an experience and when that delivery arrives - you'll know you have something in your possession that doesn't exist anywhere else in the world!
