Private Commissions

We love working with clients on custom commissions to help bring a space to life. This is perfect for those who can’t find the exact piece they are looking for or have missed out on a previous original.

Antoinette Ferwerda takes on a limited number of private commissions each year and these pieces incur an additional fee. The process begins with a creative brief where we ask you to reference past works and select a preferred style as inspiration.

From here we require the preferred dimensions, orientation, colour likes and dislikes and finally the frame preference. Please note the commissioned piece will not be a direct replication of a past work, rather influenced by or produced in the same style and/or palette. Once you have briefed us, we will document the discussion and put together a written brief for your approval.

Once approved, a 50% deposit is required for the piece to be submitted into Antoinette's production schedule. Once the deposit has been paid, the lead time is typically 4-8 weeks, and is subject to Antoinette's workload.

Close to completion, we will invite you into the gallery to view your piece. Alternatively, we can send through a progress photo for your comments/approval prior to framing. Final payment is required before delivery.
