Commissions and Other Services
I accept commissions for landscapes, flowers, portraits, and more. However, I am only able to accept a limited number of portrait commissions per year.

Please send any inquiries/reference photos to me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a no-obligation quote.
I can cut mats for you for art on paper or prints that you buy from me, or from somewhere else. I currently only offer mats with straight cuts (i.e. no rounded or scalloped edges). I can make multiple windows within a single mat, or do double- or triple-matting as desired. Please send any inquiries to me at email@example.com.
