Commissioned Artwork Journey
Creating original commissioned art pieces for people is one of my great loves. To create each piece I speak to the client about what kinds of things they want the artwork to embody. Is there a feeling? Particular colors or images? Words? I then intuitively connect to the energy that wants to come forward for the particular person or people and allow that to evolve organically on the canvas. I do not go in with a set vision of what the piece will look like, but often there are images that come to me in advance that want to be included and tend to show up in the process. I believe there is healing energy in artwork and that is what I bring forward in each of my pieces...those things that will most benefit the particular client I am painting for.
To begin the journey with me...
Contact me via the form at the bottom of this page and address the following:
+ Would you like to correspond via e-mail or schedule a phone call to discuss color preferences, images, feeling, theme, etc.? (I highly recommend a phone call as it gives me an even greater sense of what to bring forward in your art piece)
+ What are the desired dimensions of the piece (in inches)?
+ What medium (canvas, artist board, other) would you like to be utilized?
Once we have connected and made some determinations:
+ I will e-mail you an invoice for a 20% deposit along with a commission contract
+ We will determine the time frame in which you would like the piece created (there is a 4-5 week minimum depending on if I have the size medium you desire in stock)
+ Pictures will be shared for approval before final art piece is shipped. If needed, I will make up to 2 edits based on your feedback *
+ When you are happy with the finished product, I will e-mail you an invoice for the remaining 80% + shipping
+ Once final payment is received, your custom painting will be on its way!
*If you are not satisfied with your painting after 2 edits, your 20% deposit can be transferred to another purchase

Commissioned Art Testimonials
I don't look at Tera's art, I experience it. There's a unique energy and feeling that comes from each of her pieces and I knew immediately I wanted one in my home. I commissioned Tera to create a piece including our wedding vows as a gift to my husband (and myself!) for our 10th wedding anniversary. I appreciated her thoughtful questions, asking what kind of "feel" I was seeking from the artwork, and while I gave her some general direction, I really felt as though it needed to come from her. Her work is so inspired and I didn't want to get in the way of her flow. There is life inside the painting she created for us. The love in our vows, the love in our friendship, the love in our marriage and Divine Love, through Tera, radiates from the piece.

This piece was created in honor of the preschool teacher my son Gabriel had for two years. She is doing the work she is called to do in the world; cultivating young minds, hearts and spirits with grace, kindness and love.
Tera has produced two beautiful commissioned pieces for me. After simply giving her my preferred colors, images, and words she composed works of art that spoke to my soul! Every time I look at them, I find new things to admire. Not to mention the fact that they bring me great peace and clarity during times I am questioning some aspect of life. You will never own a more personalized piece of art than ones produced by this talented artist.
