Pass along Your Family Story with a Painting
Have you ever caught yourself looking at the same object over and over again and your inner voice tells you that you should make a painting out of it?
That little voice inside is right. Just like artists are driven to paint what they love, you want to listen to that voice that tells you which subject you should make a painting of.
With a painting, you can tell a story that is unique to you. Imagine being able to relay the story of an object dear to you, to your child, grandchild or even a group of close friends, why the painting is so special to you.
But, I know it can be hard to find the right artist to do a custom painting for you.
Because creating a painting involves emotion and excitement and not to mention, anxiety. What if the painting turns out awful or the artist is difficult to deal with?
That’s why, with my painting commissions, I make the process very simple.
I’ll help you go through the process with ease and headache free. Because I have over a decade of experience as a portrait artist, I understand how important custom works are to my clients.
I’d love to help you create your dream painting.

RESERVE YOUR SPOT
Since I only open a limited number of spots per year, it’s best to book your spot early. Simply pay a non-refundable booking deposit of $300 to reserve a place on the painting schedule and to hold the price at its current level for ONE year. Please note, prices are subject to change without notice.
Yes, however, there is an additional fee of $100 for custom orders. Simply email us and let us know the size you want to commission and we’ll email you a quote.
As Siti no longer does portraits of humans and animals, there are a few limitations to what subjects she accepts for commission work.
Generally, Siti paints all kinds of subjects. We encourage you to take a look at her work in the Gallery and Shop sections. But if you’re not sure if a subject you desire to be painted will be accepted by Siti, email a photo attachment of the desired subject. Siti will let you know if she can paint the requested subject within 24 hours.
Payment for commissioned works can be made via Paypal or direct bank transfer.
Additionally, we will email you separate invoices. One invoice will be emailed for payment of 50% of the commission fee, which is due after client approval of the initial painting. Another invoice will be sent, for the final 50%, which is due after the work is complete.
If you change your mind before the painting is started, the non-refundable deposit may be used towards purchases at Siti’s online shop.
All sales are final after the initial painting has been approved. You will have a chance during the commission process to confirm that the painting matches your vision.
If you’re local, you’re welcome to stop by the studio and pick up your painting. Simply email us to make an appointment. Otherwise, your finished painting will be shipped via USPS.
