Commission a Work of Art

Commission a Work of Art

Have you ever considered commissioning a Painting?
Artist Claire J Kendrick, finds the process is exhilarating! I work with the collector, help them define the look and composition that works best. Superimposed renderings of artwork on photos of the wall spaces, until we reach the perfect answer for the collector, and composition for the space. Sometimes you love and appreciate an artist’s body of work, but want a customized artwork bespoke to your decor colors and style, or most often, the perfect size for a specific spot in your home or corporate office. 

Claire Kendrick has successfully worked with many collectors to help define and execute their unique vision in a commissioned piece. Known locally and internationally for her dramatic large seascape and landscape works of art, her paintings bring a sense of color and drama to any room! 

Not all artists love the pressure of commission projects but Claire in her previous career worked as a designer in the fast paced environment of the fashion world. Claire worked in Paris, London, Brussels and has traveled extensively, she takes commission work seriously and has a brilliant stylish esthetic in imagining and creating a work of art that will sing in any room. 

Being a full time painter it’s a career and a choice not for the faint hearted, especially during these times. Commission work takes time, so if a client is in a building stage or has a unique area of their home, that requires custom size works of art.  Typically you should count on 4 – 12 weeks for completion, however it may be longer depending on the artist’s schedule. We try using all the essential tools to walk a client through the process so they are excited. GoPro technology allows Claire to send clients time lapse video so they can see the speedy version of what’s happening in her studio. Everyone loves that part! Meeting the clients, seeing the space is a challenge at the moment but video conferencing helps translate the collective vision onto canvas. Growing up in a family of architects and designers the job site is familiar territory – seeing through the chaos – seeing the vision – it is compelling and very satisfying natural part of the process. – Claire Kendrick
