Commissions Policy

Hannah loves creating custom artwork for people and would be happy to help you make your creative vision a reality!

Types of commissions I offer:

  • Hand-lettering
  • Fine Art
  • Illustration
  • Bible Journaling

Hand-Lettering Commissions

Hand-lettering commissions start with a base price dependent on the dimensions of the piece.  The base price includes up to twenty characters.  All additional characters are an added dollar amount per character. 

Hand-lettering commissions can be painted on a plain background, with a decorative border, or added illustration (each with a different base price per the dimensions of the piece).

For example, an 11”x14” hand-lettered commission with a plain background starts at $75.00 and includes the first twenty characters. All additional characters for a piece with these dimensions are an additional $1.00 each.

Alternately, a 16”x20” hand-lettered commission with a decorative boarder starts at $200.00 and includes the first the first twenty characters.  All additional characters for a piece in these dimensions are an additional $2.00 each.

A hand-lettering commission includes one digital mockup, giving you the opportunity to see a rough sketch of what the final piece will look like, and includes one round of revisions if necessary.  There is a $15 charge per added round of revisions after the first requested revisions have been made.  Once you have approved the artwork I will begin work on the final piece.

Hand-lettering commissions are only offered in dimensions ranging from 8”x10” to 18”x24.”

Fine Art and Illustration Commissions

Fine art and illustration commissions can be done in any combination of Hannah’s signature style incorporating abstract textures, geometric design, and detailed botanicals.  Fine art and illustration commissions are offered in dimensions from 5”x7” to 30”x40”+.  Prices vary depending on the dimensions of the piece and the work time estimated to create the piece.

If you have a concept for a custom painting, feel free to [contact] Hannah and send her pictures or links to artwork that you like.  Hannah is always available to help you come up with a color scheme and concept that suits your design needs.

Bible Journaling

Bible journaling commissions include all artwork done on Bible pages and can incorporate either half-page or full-page artwork done in a Journaling or Notetaking Bible or on a loose leaf page from a thrifted or vintage Bible.

Bible journaling commissions start at $35 for half-page artwork and $50 for full-page artwork.

For a Bible journaling commission done in a Journaling or Notetaking Bible, you can pre-purchase the Bible and send it to Hannah, or you can have Hannah purchase the Bible for you, in which case the retail cost of the Bible will be added to the price of the commission.
