Frequently Asked Questions
How may I purchase works available on the Shop tab?
Just send me an email entitled “Purchase Inquiry” and include a brief description of the work you wish to purchase. I do not include shipping in my prices as shipping prices can vary greatly. This also allows for me to take both cash and e-transfers rather than processing purchases through third-party sites the additional costs it may involve, savings which I can then pass on to you, my customer. Emails and requests for specific works will be processed on a first come first served basis to ensure as much fairness as possible without adding costs to you, my customer.
How do you price your work?
One of the most important things for me is to ensure that I create works that maintain a high quality and don’t break your budget. I offer a wide variety of styles and sizes of work to provide a variety of options. If you are looking for custom work and are unsure of its cost, please feel free to reach out to me for a quote. If you include your budget I am always happy to suggest alternate ideas (sizing, or style) that would best suit your price point.
How do I commission you?
If you are looking for custom work you can either contact me through my email or the contact tab on this website. In your message, please include any of your ideas and name any previous works of mine that may have sparked your interest. Please include any details about the size, style or medium that you may have in mind. This information not only helps to see your vision but also helps in developing a price quote. If you have a specific budget you would like to aim for, feel free to include this.
How does shipping work?
At the present time, I ship through Canada Post with the option to meet with local customers to save on this cost.
Larger orders and works that are done on canvas are calculated on a case-by-case basis as these require special packaging and shipping in order to ensure the safety of the work.
How do I pay for your work?
Payment for orders is processed through e-transfer, though cash is acceptable for local orders. Custom work requires a 50% deposit prior to my beginning work on your commission.
When do you post new works for sale?
New works will be announced on my Instagram page @blake.vdh . Sign-up for email reminders or you can follow me on Instagram (@blake.vdh) or Facebook (@blakevdh) for reminders to have the first choice when new works are released.
