Custom Art Commissions

A wonderful part of my business is working with clients to create unique, custom paintings that they love! 

Option 1
I create a beautiful painting similar to one of my original encaustic pieces tailored to be unique for you - a different size, an alternate colour scheme, and incorporating a favourite photo or object are all possibilities. Please be assured - due to the unique process of working with hot wax, all of my paintings are one of a kind.

Option 2
You have a brilliant idea for a unique encaustic painting - possibly a collaboration using your photography or drawings - the skies the limit!

I take on a limited number of commissions per year - if you’re interested in discovering more about the process or have any questions, I’d be happy to have a chat - 416.206.8604

Nature's Joy

Nature’s Joy

A client approached to me with a wonderful idea for her daughter's 50th birthday - an artistic collaboration - her outstanding photography incorporated into one of my colourful encaustic paintings! We began by discussing the things her daughter loved - nature, water, monarch butterflies, the colour purple. My client and her daughter share a special connection with Monarchs so that became the starting point. After receiving a variety of Felice's gorgeous photographs, I selected the ones I thought would work best and began the painting. The final result - her daughter was thrilled with her surprise birthday gift!


A Time for Us

A Time for Us

Finding the concept of my painting "Memories of Young Love" really interesting, the client asked me to create a new piece especially for her that incorporated her favourite song - 'A Time for Us' - the theme song from Romeo and Juliet.

"I cannot express enough how absolutely gifted Deanna is. Her imagination soars with vision and creativity. After our concept meeting, she was able to envision and then bring to life one of the most beautiful and meaningful pieces of art I now own. She knows how to read her clients, is professional, timely and highly personable. If you are looking for a beautiful and unique piece of art, I highly recommend working with Deanna." - Charlene, Acton, ON

At a recent art show, the client loved three of my paintings that were already sold.  I created unique 6x6 paintings for her based on the theme and colour schemes of the other pieces. One of the paintings is pictured here.

Using the client’s photos, I created a fun and unique piece of mixed media art that captured their family's summer adventures.
