 A large painting of your neighborhood or even your own backyard is like having a giant window of light on our wall.

Do you have a large wall to fill with art? Or perhaps you want to surprise your significant other with a truly amazing gift for the holidays, special birthday or other occasion?  Collaborate with Nina on something exciting and unique! She can work in any style...from large abstract works to detailed realistic portrayals.  

Here are some ideas for commissions:

  • a portrait of your house or garden

  • a painting based on your favorite family or travel photo

  • immortalize your adorable pet, or even your car or boat

  • a big splash of color to brighten a dark space

  • the possibilities are endless!

Nina is open to your suggestions and can work in many different artistic styles, mediums, and sizes. She can work from your photos, or if possible can travel to shoot photos on location.   

The first meeting is always free. After a project is agreed upon, then a 1/2 deposit is due to start the work, and the balance is due upon completion. Pricing for commissioned pieces starts at $2,500.

It all starts with a call or email.  We are excited to hear your thoughts!
