Inquiries

I'm pleased to consider commission work, and invite you to contact me with your questions and ideas.

Portraits are a favourite subject, but I'm certainly open to other possibilities. Basically, any well-lit photo can be turned into a mosaic.


Editing

Digital photos can be colour-corrected, cropped, and scaled up to any dimension of final art.

Minimum dimensions for a mosaic are 8" x 10".

Detailing is an important part of each piece: For portraits, I strive to include areas of fine tile and glass work -- especially around eyes, mouth, and hair -- which are crucial to capturing likeness.

I aim for a sense of balance between regions of detail and broadness. I try to create a kind of "liquid pixelation" in the tiling -- I paint with glass and arrange my grout-lines to capture the flow and movement of my subject.

When you inquire, please send along whatever photo(s) you're considering, and indicate the size of the final artwork that fits your budget. I'll get back to you in a day or so with some initial thoughts regarding suggestions for a composition and colour scheme that is best suited my mosaic practice. If you say "Go" -- we'll sign a contract and get the ball rolling.


Pricing

I charge a standard price of $10 per square inch, regardless of materials used, or cut-size of tile pieces.

Payment

All prices are in Canadian Dollars, and do not include applicable sales tax.

  • Term Option A: A 50% Retainer is required to schedule a piece, finalze a design, and agree upon a delivery date. Balance is due on delivery of the final artwork.
  • Term Option B: Financing is available for a negotiated number of months. Work proceeds accordingly, with photo updates at each monthly payment. Final delivery of art occurs at last payment.

Minimum delivery time is about 4 - 6 weeks for a small (8" x 10") piece. Production time increases with the size dimensions.

Sorry -- no Rush orders: Art takes time.
