commission artwork by danielle nelisseIf you have an idea for a painting commission, send us an email at or give artist Danielle Nelisse a call at (619) 379-5518 to discuss your idea.

Commissioned paintings are priced based on the size, medium, and complexity of the piece. She will spend time to consult with you about the project, create any necessary preliminary sketches. She will take time away from her normal art practice to create your commission.

Before Danielle Nelisse begins working on your painting commission, she requires a 50% non-refundable deposit. This assures that she will be paid for her time and materials. Once the commissioned piece is complete, she will send you a high resolution image of the work. After minor alterations to the artwork are made, she will charge your credit card the remaining 50% and ship the artwork to you.

“The painting for me just became a center of focus. It gave me that central idea that I was aiming for with the play in a visual form,” said Woosley, who directed Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park’s production of “The Taming of the Shrew.” Caprice Woosley, Director of The Taming of the Shrew, 2017 Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park, as quoted by reporter Brandy McDonnell in the Oklahoman News.

The time will vary depending on the size, medium, and complexity of the commissioned piece, and the artist’s schedule. Typically artwork commissions take ten to twelve weeks to complete.

Danielle Nelisse is absolutely amazing to work with! We came across her art on a gallery website and she got in contact with us right away and never lost touch. We are an interior design business and we were working with a client that had strange hours, causing it to be difficult to be face to face with them. Nelisse worked through that, and was as sweet as could be! She was on top of everything every step of the way!

Her piece was perfect for our client’s family room, and we could not be happier with the service we got from Danielle!  Casey, Uma Stewart Interiors & Lifestyle, NJ | June 2015
