Commissioned Paintings

Nic regularly works with clients on customised pieces that celebrate memorable moments in her clients lives. From capturing their favourite tree they walk by on weekend walks with their mother, to engagement locations, to capturing the view from a home soon to be sold.

Nic finds so much enjoyment working with clients to bring their ideas to life through her paintings. 

In order to continue her work exhibiting at galleries Nic has limited spaces each year for Commissioned Paintings. 

If you would like to secure your spot please leave your details in the form below and she'll be in contact to discuss the process of booking you in.

For further details on Commission paintings please continue reading through the information below. 

Commissions Waitlist

Add your details to Nic's Commission Waitlist below and you'll be contacted shortly to discuss your piece further and to secure your spot for 2024! 

Thanks for submitting!

How it works

01

Once you've signed up to the waitlist; 

I'll be in contact to briefly discuss your idea, timeframe and what size you're looking for, then I'll be able to provide you with a quote or a few price/size options and confirm I can complete your piece within the timeframe you're looking for (if there is a specific date like a birthday or anniversary!). If there is a site visit required I'll add in travel costs to your price also. 

02

Once you've confirmed the quote

You pay your 30% deposit and I book you in and let you know when I'll be in contact to discuss your piece in further detail. When that time comes we'll either chat via email, over the phone or catch up in person to discuss your piece further, whatever you feel more comfortable with. In this meeting we will discuss more in depth what you're looking for, talking colour pallets and what you are hoping to capture in this piece, I'll likely ask more information about why this location is meaningful to you and what the vibe of the piece is (don't worry, I'll lead this convo hehe). Once we have more of an idea of your piece I'll either head to the studio to start sketches or go on a site visit. 

2a

Site visit

This is where I get to visit the location of your painting, explore the surroundings, take pictures and sketches and really get a feel for the place. During 2020 I was able to complete many commission paintings from photos, so a site visit isn't always necessary, but I do love them! Once I have captured the location with sketches and photo's I'll head back to the studio, collate all the info and send you my ideas. 

03

Time for sketches!

From here I'll make mini mock ups of your painting through sketches, this is an opportunity for us to both clarify the idea's we have in our mind and make sure we are on the same page. We will go back and forth until you are happy with the sketch and then I'll start the final piece! Step 2 and 3 could take as little as a week to as many are needed to get this sketch just right :) 

04

Time to start the final piece!

I'll start on the final piece, and once the piece is looking the way I envisioned I'll send through some photos with some progress images from along the way. This gives us an opportunity to make any changes before I start the final details and make sure you are super happy with it before I finish it off. 

05

Final details and framing!

I'll add the final details, send images through to you to approve, if you live locally we can organise a studio visit here also :) Once the final piece has your tick of approval I'll take it to the framer (if it's being framed) and then we wait 2-3 weeks for framing to be complete. At this point I'll ask for your final payment so your piece is all paid for by the time of pick up/shipping! 

06

Your piece is ready!

Depending what we discussed in our first meeting, your piece will either be shipped to you at this point, hand delivered or you'll come to my home studio in Barwon Heads to pick it up! 

This is my favourite part, I've even had clients bring their partners to the studio to show them their surprise piece that they had no idea about.

I find so much joy collaborating with clients on special pieces for themselves and their loved ones. If you'd like to work together please add your details to the Commission Waitlist above or simply email info@niceverist.com with any questions.

I can't wait to work with you!

Frequently asked questions

Do you travel interstate?

Absolutely! We can discuss all travel fees in our first meeting but I'm more than happy to travel interstate!

Do you take payment instalments?

Absolutely! We can discuss this in our first meeting but if you'd like to add in extra payments along the way we can organise that at any time. 

What is the general timeframe from start to finish?

Usually 4-8 weeks once we catch up from your book in date. This varies depending on painting complexity and how long we spend in the sketching stage. I'll keep you updated on timeframes all the way through and am committed to finishing paintings on time if they have a specific date.
